Hi, just jouned the forum.There are not a lot of Aussie posters here, maybe that will change in time.
I got my new LW MkII Focus Trend in late December, so far I'm very happy with this car.
I live in Hervey Bay Qld. I have not seen too many current model Focus' on the road, but I think it's a good thing. I was considering a Mazda 3, but there are so damn many of them driving around.
The Focus was much nicer to drive during the test drives compared with the Mazda, so it was an easy choice for me.
