It appears that you don't drive one so why do you come to post comments on a forum that supports Focus owners. We are all entitled to our opinion and I think that is great. Just wonder why you seem so negative here. And have you driven one yet. If you do please let us know what you think then.
by the way, you know the st2 you drove at woodhouse?... yeah, happens to be the same one I test drove. And the same dealer I got the fusion sport from. Any other questions? And no, I haven't done an st3, don't care to.
Oh, and I post on a focus forum because I own a focus. For knowing everything you seem to forget alot. Remember, the svt running 14.06 @5psi (should be in the low 13's easily since the bbk this fall and upcoming tune)
Now, back to the regularly scheduled gen3 thing

Flybigrc Speaking of Crapy Roads in Missouri. I cross the JB Bridge every day and man can you tell the difference between 255 on the Illinois side (smooth) and the Missouri side (bumpy)! Heck I-55 isn't much better. Your choice of all-seasons was a good one with the Missouri junk we drive on!

Kipp well atleast you enjoy it either way. i did notice that the stock setup was a stiff ride, but then again it's a performance car. I personally liked the way it drove, but I would rather have something that wandles well over a cushy ride. only reason i switch from high performance tires on my car to an all season was cause I used it for work and needed something that would hold up longer and handle all the crappy MO rodes I was driving on.

Flybigrc Oh an update on the ST handling with the Yokohama IG20 Winter tires. I actually like the ride better with these tires over the stock Summer tires. Crazy uh? Those summer tires seemed a bit hard. could have been that the temp was starting to creep near the 45 degree range. Well next summer when I put them back on we shall see. On the up side with them being goodyears, they will wear out in 20,000 miles so I can get something different :)

You don't actually read anything do you?

Kipp very nice. i drove a st3 yesterday for the first time and i was impressed. can def see why everyone likes them. handled awesome with plenty of power and a great sound to it. still felt heavy though and didn't really like when the traction kicked in (yes i know it can be turned off). now i'm just waiting for the fiesta st to come out so i can check that out.

Flybigrc I have had my ST for 2 weeks now and its really a fun car to drive. I just put on my winter tires and the driving expereince is still great. I bought the car to replace my old SUV. Wanted something a little more fun but with better MPGs. I own 2 corvettes (68) (04) so I am definately a car junky. BTW I am getting about 30 MPG, I found that the sweet spot for gas mileage is about 68 mph if your intestested.

However, If I didn't have a family then I would rather have a rwd vehicle. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and deserve respect for it.
Well said Kipp
