Yeah actually that wasn't a bad commercial. Doesn't change the fact that the car is BUTT-UGLY!!!

If their design department could only catch up to their marketing department .

Goes to show how little faith they have in the car itself...given that the only points advertised were "you can tell the stereo what to play" and "it gets 35 MPG." And how they don't really show the car at all...

Those are the good points of the Focus. It also has a nice interior. The only other great point I could make about one is if you have a hatch you have a nice amount of cargo space. Other than that, nothing all that impressive.

Although still is uses basically the same powerplant except for a smaller gas tank and a few more hp than the original powerplant, it loses 2 mpg which doesn't make sence to me.

I meant all of them in general, which makes the '08 even less appealing since no hatch means less cargo space.

EDIT: It "loses 2 mpg because the 37 mpg quoted for the '05-'07 models were changed to 34 mpg, so its actually a slight improvement.
