I was just wandering what your guys 2nd choice was to buying the Foci?

Mine sadly enough was the Lancer.

I was interested in the hatch back honda si. Thought the rally mounted shifter was cool. Just couldn't see paying for it. Glad I went with the svt though.

My mom insisted I get a car that is reliable, and won't cause problems or break down... So I agreed after test driving the Focus.

My 2nd choice would be a nissan 240. Gotta love read wheel drive.

I was going to get an F-150, but i am really glad I got a focus. I didnt even know anything about the focus when I bought it. Both of my brothers drive f-150's and I perfer riding low in a compact car, than driving a big ole' truck. I'm still going to get an f-150 some day as my 2nd vehicle.

Mine was the Ranger. I am glad I went with the Focus. I am sure I would be hating life trying to drive in the snow in a light rear wheel drive ranger.....lol. Besides the Focus is a fun car to drive, and if I ever need a truck I just call my brother and use his.

My second choices were the Acura EL (Honda Civic EX with leather) or Civic Si. I didn't get the Si, because my wife doesn't like 2-doors and the prices were just too high. I didn't get the EL because the handling was not as good as the Focus, plus I would have paid alot more money for one out of warranty with more miles. I don't have any regrets!
