Ford Focus Deemed Safe In The Military
 
Well lately the Marine Corps has been purchasing new vehicles and Ford Focus Sedan SE is one of them on their list. Pretty much fuel economy and safety makes a car on the list as a govvy (government vehicle). Sucks I'm on base with all these Focus govvy's running around but I tweaked mine a bit so it stands out [:D]

There are alot of new Foci running around here on Fort Hood as Gov vehicles. Mostly the DA Civilians drive around in them. I am guessing they are buying them because they are cheap and can get them by the masses, just like the Suburbans, Tahoes, F150's, & Fusion Hybrids

The Army has been using them for a while now.

My recruiter(Marines) and the army recuiter that shares the same office as him both have them with gov tags. Never really thought much about it, interesting.

Are these foci standard colors or repainted?

All the ones I have seen are Base (S Model) Sedans that are White.

I can't figure out how excessive government spending will make you happier that you had one. Punctuation is your friend.

You are really convinced that all of us should be having problems all because you had a bad apple...[facepalm]
