Yeah I think overall it's selling as good as can be expected, given the long term brand image of Ford versus Toyota and Honda.

The overall positive reviews of it has certainly helped, but import lovers' ongoing negative perception of Ford, plus the negative buzz (DCT, MyFord Touch) which most car shoppers would certainly have come across in their research, hurt.

I just looked at a few of the big Ford dealers in the region and they seem to have the normal level of stock, around 50-60 Focuses each. So I'm not sure supply is a problem, at least in my region.
