Thats still a 6000 dollar hit for the base version of the S

Saw this article while looking for the projected resale value.

12 BEST RESALE VALUE CARS, 2012

CARS UNDER $20,000: FORD FOCUS SE HATCHBACK

Sticker price: $19,095 Invoice price: $17,903 TrueCar national average price: $18,375 3-year resale value: 63%, 5-year: 45% City mpg: 26, Hwy: 36

Part of what clinched the Best New Car award in its class for the Focus was its stellar resale values. Good looks, plenty of standardequipmentandtons of cargo space in the hatchback don't hurt either.
Yea, I didn't think about the discounts she got on the car originally too ... so the hit is there. My fault.

We gotta be careful what numbers we're throwing out now too ... Re-sale vs Trade in.

I hope that article is right ...
