It's going to be the same. For some reason, we get accustomed to things and when they change we freak out.


In my over all opinion I don't think the 2011 Focus is a complete fail. Yes, it does have some fail parts on it, but didn't all our focus at one point in time have something that failed hardcore on it? When I got my 05; I hated the badges, the hub caps, and various other thing. Those have since changed. With the 2008 came the dreaded fake chrome. How many people did we see change that? If you do buy one, think of it as little imperfections and think of ways to change them. You never know. We could all photoshop a 3 door hatch and mail it to ford and help change their mind. I give it a year or so and we will all embrace our next gen Focus.

writing letters does little. im sure ford basis their decision economically and not on love or emotion. everyone does this. alot of things we love and want but cant do because its not cost effective. either u get right the first time or not.
u can build on something but so far it doesnt look great.

yes as usual were all waiting for ford to get it right. thats the sad part were all loyal dogs hoping for that t-bone steak and all were getting is dry food. weve been trying to be optimistic since 05. some of us will bite the hand that feeds us and be set free and find out that the grass is greener on the other side.
