I really didnt like banging the passengers knee when shifting or not being able to grab the shifter to change gears while taking a right because his leg was there.
What happened to the room? they magically become a fiesta once you step inside.
And the gas mileage sucks bad.
what happened to the sports car ford was going to build out of the focus?
People have been waiting a long time, and DESPERATELY "want" to love it... so they're convince themselves it's "not so bad" in some areas (like the ridiculous bolstering, unless you're 160lb 16-year old), instead of buying a model that truly makes them happy in all areas... Like a WRX! LOL

Is the gas mileage bad in the ST? Obviously the sticker states 32 highway... is that realistic?
