Guess what i did....

well my car has been giving me alot of issues lately so i decided to go down to my local ford dealership to see what they had. just intending to look.

.....i now have a 2008 focus SES coupe (loaded) on order... yay for self control.

it should roll off the factory lines around the end of the year or the first week of January. Im still not 110% sold on the fact of getting a new car over just working on the one i have, so i had the rep put in a 100% get out clause in the contract that we signed for the order.

i just wanted to see what you all thought and opnions on the new focus. I persionally like it but the money bothers me, but this is the first actually new car ive bought at a dealer so its a little wierd.

anyway, thanks for your thoughts and opnions in advance. Feel free to argue if ya want but keep it clean.

Thanks,


Sarif2029

I looked at an '08 SES Coupe yesterday when I had to go in to get my fog lights replaced due to a defect. The sticker price on it was about 18.6. They don't look all that bad. I should have test drove one while I was there.

for the price of that car you could have gotten something a bit nicer... 18k is a bit much.. you could have spend another 3 or 4 k and gotten a wrx.. just a thought..

if its loaded, then look at what youre getting..

i personally arent the biggest fan of the 08's, but its not a bad car.. and its brand new, so you know that you wont have too many issues with it, and if you do, its warrantied.

i say congrats to you if you do decided to get it..

and while buying a used svt isnt a bad option, their getting harder to find, especially decent ones..

when i was looking at svt's, almost every single one that i found for a reasonable price was beaten to hell.. so yea

Or you could have spent the same money and gotten a 2.3 Mazda3 (or, if you MUST have a coupe, a Scion tC)...

Whatever - woulda, shoulda, coulda. I'm sure the new Focus ain't bad at all if you can live with, or in your case LIKE, the looks. Good luck with it and congrats.

I agree, I would have looked at the Scion I heard they are extremely cheap and I love the way they look. 4 wheel disc brake and a 2.3 engine.
