Thumbs up Any other Focus owners feel like we got more car than we paid for?

I don't know about others, but I am really happy with my Focus. I bought it used, 27.5K on the clock and it is just a fun car. I feel like its real sharp and a decent performance with a comfortable ride, and for a price you can't beat. am I alone on this one?

I definately got more car than I paid for. I love my car and all its little quirks (mainly gobs of understeer, but that may just be the tires givin up the ghost).

I'm very happy with my Focus. I love this Car!!!

I paid $11K for a 2005 ZX5. Considering that the sticker price was over $17K, I'm happy with the Deal that I got.

I'm not thrilled about the Gas Mileage I'm getting so far though. I'm hoping that it gets better.
