I think the speculation of manual vs automatic all depends on the car and tune.

Absolute only thing I don't like about the Focus. I miss AWD, but I could definitely settle for RWD.

I don't know if the focus would be very good as a rear wheels drive. AWD, sure, but rear wheel ... eh.

If they would have created more of the sporty 4bangers Fords as they did the Cossie Escort, we would definitely have VW battling with us.

But the new Focus ST, seems to handle quite nice for being a FWD.
I did finally get a chance to test drive one ... but not in a way that I would like to drive one.

But I definitely like the appeal of RWD. I also test drove the new Subaru BRZ, wow is that nice. Not F/I, but you can feel that thing move.

There will never be a awd focus, and don't knock a rwd one till you've tried it, not that I've have but I'm sure it's fun all in it's own right lol. I still believe someone should make a RWD duratec powered focus. The ford Ranger would make a great start with a 2.3l head on it the block (the 2.3l rangers have 2.0 heads on them, hence the lower power rating they have).
