17000 and still going strong

Just stumbled on this forum, and wanted to add my 2c.

I bought mine in April, and boy I love this car. I used to have a 2000 corolla, and that was small & fun to throw around. I find my Focus to be even more fun to drive! Responsive steering (awesome steering wheel), smooth engine, little body roll - perfect! I commute 120 miles a day (90% highway), and i'm averaging 37.2 (computer, 38.2 by my manual calc) mpg at 68-70 mph over 17000 miles...very awesome!

The speakers are good, the bluetooth audio and sync make the commute easy.

My only quibble is sometimes the transmission can be wonky (but not bad by any means). I thought I read somewhere about a software fix?

Fast, good looking, great MPG...does this car have a downside?
