the focus was replaced at last:)

for those of you all who do not know my story, here it is in a brief version. Some A hole didnt have his lights on during the rain n i pulled out on him due to lack of visablity. and he hit my front end squarely on my drivers side tire. I had a 2008 focus s, 2 door coupe, vista blue, with 5% tint and custom seat covers along with custom blue lighting which i installed. the car was totaled since the impact caused my entire front end, including the motor to be pushed over towards the passenger side about 6 inches. Last night, 1/20/09, i purchased a 2005 mazda 3. when i bought the focus, the sales woman persuaded me that the new foci are just as nice as the mazda3's and i was dumb enough to believe her. well lemme tell you something, the 3 is so much better. it handles alot better, has better acceleration, better top end speed. i am still loyal to my fucus, but instantly fell in love with this car. Its fully loaded, including the custom seats, the ones that are black and dark red, custom dash, in dash 6disc cd changer.

depepnds on what you get, if you get the 2.3, then its a little slower, but not bad, the v6 is nice. I was considering buying a 3 b4 my focus. but the fofo was just more economical at the time.

The 3's a pretty nice car. I'm not fond of how the hatch looks, so I stuck with the focus when I replaced my 02.

i have the sedan model. i wanna race a new focus and see what one is faster. i love the way the interior is set up on the 3. the auto manuel shift is also pretty cool. the car handles on sharp turns better then the fucus did, but that may just be the difference in tires and their size. my fucus had the stock 15" rims, while the 3 has the 17" alloy rims

Instead of buying Mazda 3 I would find a used, with low miles, 08 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS. Now that's a nice car. Fast responding auto manual transmission, great handle, nice interior. Comes with big wheels, navigation and nice ground effect kit.
Unless we are talking about MazdsSpeed 3, then it's a different story ;)

MLB- you're thinking Mazda6. Mazda3 has the 2.3L as the top engine option (upgrade to the 2.0)

Anyway, congrats. I just bought one for my wife-same as yours! 2006 2.3L hatch with the works, those seats are awesome (black with red inserts). I like it better than myfocus in many ways. My friend has the MS3. Now that's a different animal.

I liked everything about the 3 except the seats and my back did not agree. 15mins in the car gave me severe back pain.
