The manual is excellent on the Focus. Gear spacing is just about right. Clutch operation is smooth and light. One of the nicest shifting I've seen and IMO adds significantly to the driveability of the car. If you read the Car and Driver review and enjoy driving, there shouldn't be any question.

A little bonus -- if you have a weak battery or starter malfunction, you can always push start.
