Miller88 When I got mine, there were only three left within a few hours that were manual trans. Granted, I got mine a few months after they started making the 2012s (and were selling the 2012).

I had an S, SE and SES available. Knowing what I know now, I should have gone with the sterling gray SES :(

I do like mine, though.

zetecDon Ok man, most of the Focus I have seen around here with manual transmissions have been sedans for the most part lol. I was wanting to get the one that was nearby to me but I already have three cars and didn't want to get another one until I get rid of the Escort. By the way, I think I told you before but be sure you check out Focus Factor. It's a local group, but most of us are located on the east side. >>Click Here for Focus Factor<< Just click here and introduce yourself there.

Bobby95 Thanks to everyone who has replied, I needed some feedback. It's a little easier than staring at signatures over and over to read what every ones focus is like!

I just wanted to see what I could find in the area. I been on craigslist and have seen a few 5 speeds in the area. I really appreciate it though! I'm not in a big rush just yet, my 2002 still has life in it. As soon as it dies though, I think I'll be getting a second gen to replace it. As mentioned earlier though, it's just going to take some time to look for them.

In the Cincinnati area it seems that there is maybe two out of 25 focuses that are stick over automatic.
Hey Bobby95,

Congrats on your decision to add another Focus to your garage! If you haven't yet, I recommend checking out Ford's Certified Pre-Owned site: http://www.ford.com/certified-used/. You can modify search criteria to find the perfect-for-you Focus you've been looking for.

Good luck on your search!

The only issue I've had with mine (and seen with others) is the clutch return spring breaks on them. not a big deal, just means the pedal may not come all the way back out. only issue with it is when it's cold it rests on the cruise shutoff switch. just have to lift the pedal with your foot to set the cruise.
mine broke at 13k. the 2nd spring has lasted a bit longer now =)

mac.mogul They exist. You might end up with options/color you don't want because of it but they do exist.

I almost had a black '11 SES with moon'and'tune package, heated leather seats, the works but it was an auto so I went with the grey one with standard audio, cloth seats, no moonroof because it had a 5 speed.

Dukttape They had to ship mine in from another dealer from a good 150 miles away. They had like 5 autos on the lot. I even test drove an auto.
