Oh, and yeah, I'm gonna go ahead and sticky this, it's rather refreshing hearing the "other side of the story", as it were.
lol, not yet. I'm just enjoying the car.. haven't played in the twisties much yet. It would probably make me miss my sportbikes . Thanks for making the sticky, it's nice to see people saying good things about this car.

Thumbs up I love my FoMoCo FoFo too!!

I love my Focus!

The heated seats (never had those before) taking the chill off on cold mornings has been sweet. I'm still amazed at how good the stereo is. I sometimes take country roads instead of the interstate (never did that in my Sienna!). Even after 3,000 plus miles, I'm still blown away at the excellence of the suspension.

Right on, rock on, sweet, sweet, sweet!

I don't literally love my car, but I do enjoy it very much. And yes, I am making whatever excuse only to go out driving it.

I had intended to never buy another Ford product after my 1995 Mercury Mistake.

Once I saw the Focus and all that it offered I made an exception. I am glad I did. Excellent gas mileage, great handling, quick performance, and all the tech bells and whistles.

I really enjoy drive the Focus, even when it is just to and from work.

Just love the new Focus. First time in my life I have not been envious of half my friends with cars that get the heart racing. Yeah ,a couple minor problems but the positives outweigh them by a long shot. Was cruising along this morning getting 38 MPG when I came up on some numb-skull going 40 on a curvy 55 mph 2-laner. So, I put the pedal down and this gas miser shoots me to 65 mph in couple seconds...all with the new Coldplay blasting from the 10 speaker Sony at full volume (and album cover art displaying). Just makes driving fun again.
