I'd go with the hatchback, but I am a little biased by mine! other than that, I'd go for it!

heh, thanks! :) I really like cars with a trunk, drove a Geo Storm for a long time... not much into hatchbacks anymore... plus my dad owned every datsun hatchback under the sun and now a Daihatsu Charade... :S

well go with what you like but I think the ZX3 or ZX5 the hatchbacks are funner to drive less but more ass to throw around if that makes sense.

I like my sedan so go for it we all like our models a little more than the others. I am getting a hatch back for my wife though.

I've had my ST for a little over 5 months and love it. It came down to it or a ZX3 SES with a 5 speed. The ST is firmer riding and handling, has the 2.3 vs the 2.0 Duratec and for me, the insurance costs were quite a bit less for the 4 dr. I definately don't regret my choice, but I do like both the 3 dr and 5 dr hatches. Wish they made an ST in the ZX5 body, I would have bought that instead.

Oh ok b/c i was going to say...i dont know i think they are alittle pricy for what your getting, compared to other things you can get with more power and alittle better looking, like the mazda 3 and the scion tc, of course they wont handle like the focus but i just think 18 grand for it is too much. Go with it if u want im sure its a good car, just i would probably swing towards a 3 or a tc if i was going to be spending that kinda money.
