You know you're a Focus owner when....

You get upset when people refer to your car as an Escort...




I didn't see one of these threads here yet. Just add to the subject statement. Threads like this on other forums get pretty funny sometimes, so hopefully...

Dude try having an SVTF and having people refer say "but it's just a Focus". That isn't ment to be talking down a standard Focus. Having people refer to it as a Focus doesn't bother me as much as I so wish that they could appreciate the fact that for one it has a different engine, transmission, suspension, and braking than a Focus.

Noone has refered to my car as an Escort though, but the it's just a Focus is similiar enough to me.

No, many individuals do, but not the forum as a whole. I can see your comparison though.
