Yes, I have commented this before,but I want to stress how lucky we are to hVe a 2008-2011 focus. I have a 5spdand it rocks,no problemsat all. I have been focused since Dec 1999 and I know what it feels to be a Focus owner. I had a 2000 Zx3 and I loved it,but the trans was funky and i traded iit in for a 2001 auto Zx3 and it was greTe for 8 years,but I returned for a 5spd 2008 sedan SES and it has been rock steady. I read the 2012 + models issues and they have nothing but problems. The press and the public hated our 2008+ models, truly, but screw them, we have proved ours our the best Focus ever. I love my Focus even though it is stock. Show your love and reply!!
