Two words - fleet sales. I see lots of rental Focuses around as well as company car Focuses. So while that might be a great sales boost for Ford, it kills resale value for owners.

That's also part of the reason why certain companies like Honda have much better resale value on their cars - you're not going to be able to call up Hertz and rent a Civic or Accord (at least not anywhere I've lived).
