elsolo GTI is nice, if they were $5000 used like the foci are, I would have looked at those for purchase as well.

Great handling, good economy, whats not to like?

They don't have the best reliability ratings, but neither does the focus
No assembled-in-mexico cars make the top of that list

FocusTuner911RS I would definitely stay away from VW, you will literally spend more in repairs than the car was worth when you bought it brand new....VW has one of the worse reliability ratings on the car market today for the past 3 or four years according to consumer reports, aside from that, my father owned a Porsche...aka VW, that car over a period one year, drove him so madd that he went from a Porsche to Toyota Camry...Not joking true story LOL But then again, if you like to waste money, to each to his own, Ford is coming up on quality, definitely worth a look into the ST if you want something as like the GTI, but if someone asked me to buy a VW or sleep with the fattest most horride chick he could find, I'd sleep with chick...

NissanAJ On the main forum page there is a section marked "Ask a Salesman." He can give you a price at a local dealer of what you are looking for and what invoice price is :) Here's the link.

fakebun Ya definitely. Thanks to everyone that contributed :D

However I still would like those who knows someone/dealership that gives really good pricing. Please let me know

Rockstar92 Oh okay I see well good luck with your choice. Honestly lots of cars fall into your budget because everything is so competitively priced. look around do lots of research. But from what I have read the new focus is one of the best handling cars in its class so you really can't go wrong. Plus FF is one of the best most supportive forums you will ever be on lol. Have a question? Just ask. the guys on the forum with more experience will be more than happy to answer =].

fakebun oh thx rockstar

my budget is really limited. it will be however much i can sell my 2006 bmw 550i for. Right now it's looking at around 23-24k. I dont think i'll ever go for a scion or korean and focus has really great mileage. But ya i'm still looking around

Rockstar92 okay I know this is really random and you don't care for my opinion. But why not wait it out?? I mean the focus st is gonna be awsome you might get the fiesta st also and then there is the hyundai veloster turbo then there is the all mighty scion fr-s or toyota 86 (even though you want a hatch). Honestly I'd wait soon you will have waayyyyy more choices. But that is just me and I hate german. Also I think the Scion is just amazing you get a car practicaly built for the track for 24k msrp and if you wait till next year to when 2014 models come out you can get one for 22k. That is what I will be doing atleast lol.

From what Ive seen, yes.

Fully Loaded run around 28-29 last time I checked.
