Thanks everyone. I did go look at the ST again this evening. The wife is not so happy because it is only a stick shift an she can't drive one! I think that is ok with me though. ;-) anyway I also looked at the new fusion. Kinda like a James Bond type car. Not as sporty as the ST but the titanium seems like it might be nice. I do think test driving several will be the key. I am gunna miss the focus though. I know it had issues, but I still loved it. I wish ford could have worked out the problems.
