I can't even tell you where I was in CPH it's been so long. I liked it better than a lot of American cities. My mother actually lived in Allinge-Sandvig up by Hammershus absolutely beautiful island. She lives over outside of CPH now.

ya I have the six speed, one of the reasons I was interested in the car was that it ONLY came with a manual. The auto they have put on the 1.0 I have heard was a regular old school automatic, so you wont hear anything about that till 100+k miles. I really don't care for automatics so I do not research any of them.

New car

So far I am happy with my 15SE fit and finish on the trim is a little wanting but expected for the price point. I had to take it in for brake noise at 100miles but I attribute that to the fact that it sat on the lot so long.

2012 ford Focus... I put a lot of miles on my car and I loved it, but have had repeated problems with the Backup assist. its dead right now. And The Tcm went out on mine. When they repaired it they said it shuddered and chattered so now I need seals and a clutch.... Not so in love with it at the moment :(

64k miles and lots of problems. Just got back from my local Ford repair shop. New clutch. Covered under warranty. However, one new motor mount, new seal to replace rear main seal, and new clutch slave cylinder. Not under warranty.
