Angry ST shortage??

Is it me or is there a shortage of new STs?

I think I have searched every dealer within
150 miles and have found none, guess I
should've bought one when I had a chance
last year

They are kind of rare to be sitting at a dealer. WHen I went to ford.com and customised one, there was only 1 ST on the 5 local lots they showed me. I custom ordered mine exactly the way I wanted. The dealer I got mine from has a billion of every kind of Foci including the wagon, but no ST's.

What store did you get yours at, Duffman ? When I got mine (Nov 04), they had 4 identically equipped as mine (1 in each color), and two more that had leather. And probably 130 other Foci..definitely a small part of their product mix.

I just checked Ford's site and within a 12 mile radius of my house (that's 5 dealers) there were only 4 in inventory, 2 at one, 2 at another. A ton of SE and SES models, though.

Roy Obrien Ford.
There was a silver ST somewhere in Ann Arbor that had heated leather seats, sun roof, SAP 1, and the Audiophile system, but it had traction control. You know how I feel about that. But it was worth the wait because my car was built as an audit car, so i essentially got a 'perfect' focus.

A quick search of Varsity Ford in Ann Arbor shows 63 total Focuses on the lot, 3 of which are STs.

I searched here in So Cal in Riverside and I found that in 10 mile radius which includes 5 dealerships. One dealership had 4 another 1 and the rest had none. I guess there are slim pickings for ST's.

One thing I noticed, besides Mustang GT's, you'll never find any cars with manuals on the lot. There's atleat 35+Foci on the dealership lot, and 1 of them has a stick. No Rangers with a stick at all either.

Yep, I think when I got mine, there were maybe 2 other ZX3s in SES trim with a manual. Everything else was an auto. The residuals are stronger for the ATX, and that's the lease special Ford pushes. Dealers are simply going to stock up on what is being promoted at any given time. Sucks for those who prefer a manual in something other than the ST.
