No regrets at all, so far! MFT, Navi works great. Car is fun and sporty. Love the lux feel. I've only had my car a couple of days, but I made sure to get as late a build date as possible. My car was built mid-September. I'm thinking that the cars built later have far fewer of the problems other owners have reported.

I have not looked back since I have traded in my Jeep for an SEL. I have gained so much and I am actually saving money by having a brand new car.

The one or two minor hiccups that I have had with the MFT is worth everything that you can get out of it. If I was to go back and do it again, I would make the same exact purchase, yes, including the MFT.

I have not have had a shred of buyer's remorse yet, which I cannot say about my Jeep.

What the FK is going on Ford!
Absolutely no regrets becasue I have no transmission issues, no moon roof leaking issues, no water getting into the car after heavy rain issues, no steering issues, no auto sensins windshield wiper issues, no paint issues, no oil leaking issues.

I'm still on the honeymoon phase of owning my focus, but I did have a few issues that I noticed on the 2nd day of ownership. Just some fit and finish issue. The fuse door does not sit flush. After checking it, it looks like the tech at the dealership doing the PDI may have broken the tab. Then on the 3rd day my check engine light came on, but then went away after driving the car 3 drive cycles.

No regrets here. Love this car and love the people shaking their heads in disbelief when I tell them it's a Ford Focus.

We've had our Focus since the end of April, and it just passed 10K miles this week. It's an SE hatchback, and we have absolutely no regrets.

No regrets at all. I absolutely love this car. It's got 1,000+ miles on it now but I still get excited just to hop in and drive it. Awesome look, the tuscany interior gets complements all the time, nobody believes it's a Focus. It's not super fast but I don't need super fast, I get 30mpg city and 40mpg highway (at 70mph) on a 5spd! I've had no problems with the headliner yet, no issues with moonroof stains, no issues with MFT because I saw everyone complaining about it and wanted a 5spd anyway. It's a terrific car.

Despite my steering being off alignment and my oil leak I still love this car... After suffering with two rental cars (a 2011 civic and 2011 focus) and going back to my car I get so happy.
