That would make sense considering that the ST is a Focus (a la Golf/GTI).

Unfortunately, this does nothing to help those with unresolved problems.

Incorrect, good sir. I put a C&D magazine on the areas of my car having issues and chanted the words "10 best" while doing so. My car is now healed.

Having owned (most recently) a 2008 MB C-class, I can bolster the statement that the Focus' structure is on par with MB - actually, a couple weeks ago, I remarked to myself how it actually felt stiffer. The deep manhole dips I hit in this car are barely felt, whereas on the same stretch of road in my "old" C, I got more of a lashing. Very surprising.

Also, the passing power of this thing is pretty amazing, even at part-throttle. I suspect that's a result of the automated manual's trickery. If I didn't know better, and the salesman told me all Foci were Ecoboost, I'd probably believe it.

I've stated in another thread the bsic design of this car is phenomenal; the issue lies in the execution of the US product. I wonder if they have trans issues and build quality issues across the pond like we do?

And C&D did say the DCT is still a dud, despite the overall accolade.

We have found the chosen one. He is Forceflow. Please, messiah... come to my house to bless my car & make my MFT behave, and do some preventive chanting to my DCT before it gets noisy or starts lurching. [;)]

When I bought my car I also thought it was a winner. Now....I feel like I got sucker punched and made a huge mistake. Yes some people are happy with there cars, but it truly amazes me how many of us are not. Just a bunch of endless problems.

I'm glad the Focus came out on top again. I absolutely love my car.

Almost 7 months and 5000 miles later I am still impressed with my car and am glad to see it still rated at the top of it's class. I even happier I went with the 5 speed.
