I don't care for it still. Ford thinks just by making a few changes they will get us interested in it. I see it worked for some not me! If Ford wants me to come back to them they need to bring over the new RS or ST here and make it into a hatch. This car should be called the new Escort. That's what it reminds me of. Just look at the sedan and coupe. Escort the name is all over it. Where is the Ford Motor Company that I grew up and loved?

I think the wheels and the body style clash. Cant make an ugly chick cute just by slapping on some makeup.

I guess we really are Focus Fanatics, no one has voted for "I don't care either way" yet. I think it's fine for what it is, an attempt on Ford's part to please the naysayers and make the car look more "youthful" (especially since they must have realized that's the biggest group of people buying the current model). Face it, they're not going to spend that much money on something that just came out, and is only intended to fill the gap for a couple model years. Someone (or some group) got a small budget to make the car look different, probably with the instructions that all of the changes had to be things that didn't require modifications to any hard points, panels, etc. I think they succeeded with what little they were undoubtedly given.

All the changes Ford made to the 2009 Focus coupe are very positive. It is impressive that they listened to Focus enthusiasts. Can you believe that the Ford press release announcing the 2009 Focus quotes Thomas Tang of Focusfanatics.com? Bravo!

It's good everywhere but the back end. Looks too Opel with the squared off decklid recessed between the curvacious extended bumper. It's kind of punkish looking. I'd like to see more colors. The door mirror half paint looks off. It should have the bottom half painted.

I'd have to say Ford definately went out of their way to toss us a bone with a 1 year facelift. Now expand that Ford Racing line too.

It's better, but it's not a hatch.
