I realize the 12+ Focus is a trade up, but for me I wouldnt do it because:
1. I am not convinced that reliability is at acceptable levels yet.
2. ST looks pretty boy racer. I do like the Titanium.
3. I would like something a bit posher. I am a fan of the Fusion, CMax and Escape.
In summary, a trade to a 12+ Focus is an upgrade, but not enough for me to go for it. Besides, I like our humble 08-11 Focus. They just keep running well. Mine is awesome, why trade?
