Look what followed me home today...
 
I started out my day with this...

And before I knew it these 2 had followed me home...

Before :
2008 Cobalt SS - Sunroof, LSD, High Rise Spoiler

After :
2013 Ruby Red SE Hatch - Sunroof, Sync, 5 Speed, Backup Assist, Sirius
2013 Sterling Grey SE Sedan - Auto, Sync, Sirius

I miss the speed, handling, and sound system. But I do not miss this:

Crappy interior...except the seats.

All in all, I like the Focuses so much better. Much nicer interior, except maybe seats, but they are still decent. They have 4 doors...not 2. For only 160HP, they have some pep to them. They handle fairly well too. And more surprising than anything is the manual transmission...it shifts beautifully.

But of course 38 MPG is AWESOME!!! I drove back home from the dealer and the DIC said I averaged 39 MPG (of course it has to be a couple MPG off), and the same trip in the Cobalt was saying 27 MPG (and the Cobalt is about a 1 MPG off).

The hatch is mine, and I bought my gf the sedan.

FOCUS>Cobalt SS...IMO.

Car and Driver said it (the Cobalt SS) "is constructed primarily of plastics cheap enough to be rejected from a Chinese toy factory."

That means something considering that you went from a car that would spank a ST.
Power isn't everything (except maybe when you have your foot to the floor).

A wise choice indeed.
