Honestly chill out people, so freaking impatient. You people fail as logical critics....how much credibilty would Ebert and Roeper have about movies if they gave their review based on a sneak peak trailer?

If a car looks like total ass but has a good feel when driving it I am going to go with the latter of the two. I could care less what the car looks like because knowing me it doesn't keep the stock look for to long.
First appearances are what sold me on the Focus in the first place. Maybe I'm in the minority but I actually liked the way the Mk. I looked. It was not without some awkward details but the overall look I liked. I am that shallow, if I don't like the way it looks, why the hell am I going to pay good money for it? A car is, for most people, the second most expensive purchase they make. Why would I buy something that expensive, and have to justify to myself that even though I think it's ugly, it is good in other ways?

Oh and I said it in the other thread and I'll say it here, it looks derivative of the Toyota Venza, which is not a compliment:

my point is that you bought your 07 knowing that there was a better focus being sold in europe. why were you "happy and content" back then, but not now?

anyhoo, i think i want one.

This is OT but back on page 15 or whatever it was, with the Vibe vs. Bertazzoni pictures... the Bertazzoni is probably worth more than the Pontiac Vibe at this point.

am i really missing something here? is autoblog a liar? i posted this in michigan thread and now il post it here...

http://www.autoblog.com/2010/01/11/2...finally-unite/

"American Focus buyers will get one brand new engine and two transmission options at launch early next year. Like other new Fords, six-speed gearboxes are now the norm for Focus with a choice of manual or dual-clutch PowerShift units available. No traditional torque converter automatic will be offered in the Focus"

for once i did the reading

Not that I'm not impressed with this MyFord Touch features..but what I'm curious is more about the safety implications

What happens if a system failure occurs on the MyFord touch console? The A/C controls might be affected too..yikes!
It looks like there are still HVAC controls under the touch console.
