If I had bought a 2013, I'd be praising the Focus and Ford. Instead, I'll probably never buy a new car of any make ever again.

paul21 I regret buying a car within it's first year of production, and I regret feeling angry and frustrated over this car. It's just a travel expense to me now, nothing personal.

I agree with you, however, i wish ford had seen it's way clear to provide the focus with a state-of-the-art new 6 speed manual (i mean they did it w/ the dct!) instead of the old tried and true fairly obsolete 5 speed they gave us. If i had the option of a 6sp man over a 6sp auto i'd pick the manual for sure.

Some of us just prefer a manual. I had an automatic for my last car, and swore that my Focus would be a manual. I'm glad for so many reason that I got the 5 speed in my FoFo.

blknblumark I would have preferred an ST, but it's primarily the wife's car for city driving and she can't drive stick.

Maybe in a few years...

e30og been an absolute pleasure. Some rattles in the '12 that are not present in my '13. MFT is also very compliant even if a tad slow sometimes. No complaints. Blast to drive, feels substantial and I hope it holds up for the long haul

never buy a brand new design in the first year and stick to stick

mattphoto Had mine into the dealer more than total trips to the dealer for the last 5 cars I owned combined. Constant MFT problems. Parts falling off. Rattles all over the place. It doesn't feel safe. It's doesn't feel like it will last past warranty. I had a piece of the exterior fly off on the highway. I leased it and I will be happy when i hand it back and step out of the last Ford Dealership I will ever be in again. Until then my goal is to make sure everyone I know and respect stays away from Ford and their horrible vehicles. Worst purchase of my life by far. f--kFord.
