Another '05 sighting

I was driving back to my apartment, and I saw a red '05 sedan today; it must be the regular model (not sure of the trim designation), as it had wheel covers. Now that I've seen on in person, I don't think its ugly, so much as just bland. It'll probably grow on me, but I'm happier with my '01 ZTS. Oh, and something I noticed was that the tail light doesn't light up in a circle (like mine), but instead the whole thing does.

Look what they've done to our car!

Just cruised over to the Ford store. No ifs and or buts about it! Ford decontented the hell out of the Focus. Seeing it in person does nothing to sway my original opinion based solely on photos. Its worse than I thought even. All they presently have are 4 door strippies. Just a cursory going over revealed fit and finish issues that are not present in the outgoing '04 model. I compared them side by side with still new '04 sedans on the lot. The outgoing model is head and shoulders above the "new" model in terms of quality and substance. At least at this stage of production. Can't believe Ford touted it as "refined". B.S.!!! The bean counters struck yet again! Go check one out in person. I think you'll agree. We can only hope and pray they don't screw us on getting the new Euro Foci in a few years.
