Sadly the focus had to go, but its back now

Well today is a sad day, we traded in our focus. It was disipointing to see it go. And what we got for it was a 03 Kia Sorento EX AWD. Its not bad for a kia. the ride is nice and we bought it with it fully loaded. But have no fear My father says I might get into a ZX3 SVT.

The problem is that the zx3 is to much of a tight fit for me and my family. Me being 6'3 and supose to grow atleast four more inches, we couldn't do it.

Bash me if you wish, felt I needed to tell u guys.

Logan

if you do ever get into a svt, you will realize how much of a peice of junk the base model zx3 is. and it's not too tough to unbolt the driver seat and shift it back a few inches if you really want the car that badly. your backseat passengers will never forgive you though and it would make getting in back from the driver side significantly more difficult.

Here's what mommy should have told you to do when you downshift:
1. Step on the clutch
2. Simultaneously slide the shifter into a lower gear and give the throttle a quick, amazingly precise jab to rev the engine to exactly the rpm it needs to be at in the next gear
3. Quickly let out the clutch

Oh sure, It takes a few thousand tries before you get the timing and precision of your jab just right, but the reward is that you no longer suck.

Psh, my first year on this board I drove a 1991 Geo Prizm. Any Kia is better than that thing.

Besides, the Focus isn't exactly the biggest car. Good luck on your SVT, hope ya get one.

yeah I gave our salesman a hug and said help me when my dad ran over to it.
Its not soo bad it has awd and it is intended to do some off-roading. But its a really good price for and 03 fully loaded $19,999.95 on sale. the monthly payment it like $450.

Another thing is it look pretty agressive for a Kia well ours does anyways. Its got off road radials and all it needs is a killer exhuast and bush guard to bump up the cool lvl.

Don't sweat the ZX for the room. I'm 6'6" and I drive a stock ZX5 (four doors cause I have 2 kids). I love my little car. It's the first car I've had for 4 years without wanting to dump it.

Also, I had to give up my 2000 Honda Accord V6 Coupe (loaded, spoiler, black) for my focus.... I cried... I'm not too proud to say it...

Know what? The FOCUS had MORE ROOM!!! Than an Accord!

I seriously think the Japanese hate tall Americans for our large penises....

And you can't beat that warranty they offer either. Good thing, because I hear those things are highly used.

The warrenty is needed is what he means. The cars break.

However, I've heard good things about the newer Kias.
