I don't see myself ever owning a civic or corolla in their current forms, but I can understand why people buy them - they are very reliable, if totally boring cars. For some people, having a reliable appliance is all they need, so no need to hate.

To answer the original question, I think ford will try to do right by the focus. Ford has too much at stake for people to be questioning the reliability of one of their best-selling and most well-known vehicles. Ford does not want to go back to the days of "Fix Or Repair Daily."
Fanboy? No.

I just spend a few months gauging where to throw my money, so sue me if the Focus has earned it better than the other cars on the market.

I don't think Ford was ever fix or repair daily, but hey, I'm not part of the group that spreads FUD about brands.

By that logic, I also wouldn't recommend VWs, Land Rovers, Jaguars, BMWs Mercs or Audis if I was really scared of repairing.
