Anyone have an `08 yet?

Or am I going to be the first.Pending credit aprovel I should have my SES by turkey day.Typical Ford problems so far.Can`t find a SES with a stick (Can`t hardly find any sticks at all)When I found one that I liked the vin showed up at two different dealers and then gone.Im leasing so I would settle for a automatic but would like a sunroof(Just as hard to find).Im comming down from having a Marauder but I have had two Focus`s before so even though the `08 is kind of ugly being a 37 year Ford man I will see if it grows on me.I think with the right options and a nice set of aftermarket rims it could end up being pretty sharp.My performance days are over(Maybe) and all I want is a nice daily driver.

No way I'd get an 08, espescially if it didnt have everything I wanted on it.

I had to order my '07 SES ZX4 because I wanted all the options and a 5-speed instead of the automatic. My dealer could not find any SES models with sunroof, heated leather, side airbags, etc. that didn't have the automatic. I just saw the Motorweek test of an '08 SES sedan with automatic, and the 0-60 time was 10.1, which the narrator (John Davis) described as "pokey"...!!! They did say the average test loop mileage was 30 though. A friend in my office bought an '07 just like mine, but with automatic, and he still hasn't gotten over 28 on his. I usually average between 33-34 in the daily commute, with a high of 39.2 on a long trip.

I will be looking at a whats left of the `07s also and if I can find what I want I might go that way.Like I said performance is not an issue.

I drive past the local ford dealership everyday, and it's kinda growing on. I like what steeda & focus sport have done with it. So, it's a big maybe as a second car for myself. Keeping my '03 of course!!!

Good luck with the new purchase, though I would also second the fact you should wait till you can get what you want. the '08's are nice cars.
Can't wait to see how long it takes before all the heroes here tell you your car is a piece of junk, and your car is retarded.....beware, many here don't like the '08 focus, and have ragged on it over and over again..mind you, many of whom can't afford to lease or buy new, but excpect Ford to make cars they want to buy a few years later when they are cruising the used car lots, as if Ford actually cared about that.

I have driven a few and can tell you first hand that i like them a lot. They are comfortable, seem to be a little peppyer than my 06 zx3, and look really nice inside. If they made that car with the 2.3, i would trade my svt for it in a second.
