You can probably buy a 2013 Focus and have no issues. I'm just bitter that I bought the 2012 a few months into production and have gotten the run-around. So if you do get it and have issues, Ford will tell you to
off - and that
is why I can't recommend you get the Focus.
If you're worried about resale, the Fit apparently sells for 3x the amount it was purchased for and never needs any maintenance in its first 400k miles. lol
I've only heard mediocrity when people speak of the Elantra - even from my friend who owns one.
2012 FF Ti HB Kona Blue, Built 5/24/2011, 401A + Ti Handling Package, Parking Technology Package, Winter Package, Moonroof, and MFT w/NAV at 3.5.1 52k miles and counting...
