Hi Guys/Gals,

Lat week we became 1st-time Focus owners, having traded a 2005 Explorer (14mpg's) for a 2012 SE 5-door. Here are a couple of links to pictures:

The only options were the 6-speed auto transmission and the Rapid Spec 203A package. We preferred the SEL's, but the only ones our dealer could find also included a sunroof (not an option I wanted). We've been quite happy with the car so far. We got a calculated 26.9 MPG's around town on the first tank (I learned not to trust the dash readout). The first modification will be to tint the rear windows. I'd also like to ditch the stock steel wheels at some point. A new set of winter tires/rims will also be found for driving in the snow.

I look forward to learning more about the car through your collective experience here.
