Seriously I can never understand why someone feels the need to posts such nonsense.
Is it really nonsense when there are other cars in the same price range or cheaper that outperform it in every catagory? even new ones?

reviews in other mags i read seem to be pretty consistent with the focus at .96 and show the genesis and mustang v6 consistently at .97.
seems alot of manufacturers are upping the game anymore.

RonMaiden Not really surprised by the results and they were overall predictable and am looking forward to seeing the ST up against some harder hitters in the same price range like the WRX and Genesis coupe especially around a track.

Focus112 Love this, all the clows on mazdaspeedforums laughed at the thought of the ST beeting the MS3...its not even close

felixthecat Awesome, for ford. Times sure change. When I was looking for a 4cyl. car, I looked a Mazda's mp3, Spev V, GTI & the SVT, then Ford switched it up w/ the st. Great read= R&T. I jumped right to that article, like everone else.
