The new VS. the old.......

I took a look at the new '08 4 door, cool silver/gray metallic color w/ black interior. The seats are alot more comfortable, but the over all feel inside the car is CRAMPED! The have added so much plastic and padding and that TALL long center section of the dash has eaten up all the room!

I got back in my silver '03 2.3 SE, and wow , it seemed so much bigger inside!

So what I thought was going to happen( buying the '08) didn't, i'll keep my '03 til a really NEW and bigger Focus comes along. Sorry Ford, but adding a bunch of crap inside a small car is not a solution or an improvement.

It's about as stupid as changing the name of the 500 to Taurus.

Fords management needs to wake up!

Yeah, I finally had a chance to go check out the new Focus when I was in Atlanta this weekend. The exterior is gross, and when I finally sat in a 4 door I couldn't fit!! Being 6'7'', my knees where jammed in the dash and my head was graving the headliner. In my 03 ZX3 I fit in perfectly and I have plenty of headroom. I didn't get a chance to sit in a 2 door but I figure it's similiar to the 4 door. I'm very let down by the new car, I was actually liking the Orange Focussport car, oh well too bad!
