Focus ST or Dart RT or VW GTI??
 
OK, so I will be getting rid of the foci in the next 30-45 days. Won my BBB case and Ford must repurchase the Foci. Now I need to replace it. I just sat in an ST and OMG it is beautiful! My concern is the problems that it might have. I mean it has MFT, so right there you know there are problems. It does not have the DCT, so right there you know there are less problems. They are all about the same price.

So what do you guys think?

Congratulations. If I run into another issue, I will definitely be going that way. Dart R/T isn't even going to start rolling off the line for retail sales until about February. You might be able to order one in January, but so far it looks like not before then (this has been the car I have been looking at the most.)

Go for the ST. MFT might be an issue, but after nearly 2 years of testing I would hope the ST will have zero mechanical problems.

Get a Honda Civic or an Accord > Reliability substantially higher than your choices.

I only got the Focus as a trade deal to unload a low mileage 2011 F-150 (same dealer)that was killing me in gas.

You can order an ST without MFT. The only problem with that is that you have to give up the awesome Recaros at the same time.

Honda just does not have anything that is exciting me right now. Sure the civic Si is nice, but from the outside I am not excited.

Sucks about the Dart RT!

Which makes none sense. I don't like the fact that the HID/DRLs and Recaro seats are linked with trim levels. Really irks me.

Yeah and I thought about that, but the Recaros look awesome!
