Yeah, my zx2 was getting old and having problems. 14 years old. Just throwing money at it seemed stupid. (But, it was just a commuter car)

At first I was considering a Fiesta but it didn't seem to have enough power. Even driving a manual didn't make it feel any better. I don't need a lot of power, just enough to make merging easier.

Only thing I wish was better on the Focus was the throw of the gearshifter. Might need to upgrade to a short throw (if there is such a thing for this car?)
