Love my car except for one thing, it makes a popping sound inside the cabin when changing gear, speed humps etc. Its the popping sound you can make with your mouth, like the facebook messenger pop.
Anyone know what it is?

I replaced my TDI with the Focus. At first I missed all the low-end punch of the diesel motor, however now that I've broken in my Focus, I feel it's just as fast if not faster than the turbo diesel. The other bonus is that it's only costing me $20 per fill up, versus the $35+ per tank. Still loving my car.

|Theblueoval||I often think back to when I was in the market for a new car. Almost pulled the trigger on a 2012 Mazda 3 but the dealer wouldn't go down $1,000 on the car. So happy the mazda guys were stubborn because I've loved every minute spent with my focus. I'm grateful for the wonderful community I found through my focus and the great friends I've met from sharing the same passions. I still find myself looking back at her everytime I walk away, and constantly looking for other focus owners out there who seem like enthusiasts. The only problem is I love it too much and cannot stop buying parts for it!|

Just penciled in my 3rd HPDE session with my '12. Still love the car, and don't miss the BMW I traded in one bit. Cept maybe the other two cylinders. I've spent 4 days on the track with my mostly stock SE and it's a whole lot of fun. It's under braked, though even with autocross pads and high temp brake fluid. I'm definitely the slowest CAR on the track, but not the slowest driver in the novice group.
This is a fun drivers car, folks. Enjoy it - it's a very capable little car that wil deliver lots of smiles when you drive it.

(though the '03s together might be worth $3k lol)
I LOVE my new '13!! A metallic red hatchback!
It was well below book having the only feature I absolutely required; a manual transmission. It also has voice activated stuff, heated seats, calculates all kinds of data Im never going to pay attention to and might even fold my laundry if I ever read the manual...
Its amazing what has happened in cars, even plain, old domestic compacts, in the 10 years since my last newish car lol
Not bad for my latest mom-mobile, I think.

I test drove a 2013 hatch and was intending to get a Mazda 3
Then had trouble with salesman messing around.
Saw this black SE hatch for a great price and test drove it again,
So I bought it and I love it. THE Focus has always been a drivers car
And the new one is fantastic. It's Black
