You're forgetting the huge $2,000 rebate for 3 months it took to put the Focus on top in sales. I posted elsewhere that once they discontinued that rebate sales dropped by a third to 3rd or 4th place. That's why there are so many on the road now. And that's why I bought a brand new one instead of a lightly used one.
I actually had no idea about those rebates.

When I got my Focus I wasn't even planning on going used but for 24K CAD there was a Candy Blue Titanium with everything except the 18" rims (honestly, I can still get the dealer to add the rims alone so I'm not concerned about that) and I figured oh hell, why not? It had 8000kms, still smelt new and I struggled to find a single area of the car that looked 'used' at all.
