Suspension issues aside, I am totally glad I went for the Focus when I did. I was also super lucky to have the exact car I wanted available to me without ordering. SE 203A w/5MT & Sport Package in Blue Candy, with no other options.

If I waited another year, I would not be getting a Focus, that's plain and simple. I don't care for leather seating surfaces at all.

Personally I like the buffeting. I open the windows because i want a breeze, and it's nice to be able to control how strong it is with the rear windows. Keep them up for a powerful breeze that cools me off, or put them down to make it gentler.

I hate the buffeting. I always put my rear passenger side window down at least a few inches to cure it.

10 months and about 9000 miles, all trouble free. I'm very pleased with the Focus (no MFT & no DCT).

Love my SE sport. Only thing I wish I had was the 5 speed, although the DCT is doing well enough for me. I bought mine a month after the 2012s for first released, so they weren't easy to find, and I needed a car NOW.

Present. Only option around was for the DCT, but it's served me quite well.

Noticed ScottMcC and Joeywhat are both in Brighton, MI - Good to see people on here from my hometown in force!

I know of a least one more. I tested one exactly like mine but with the moonroof but I didn't think it was worth the extra money, was trying to get the car as cheap as possible. Now I kind of wish I had got it because of wind buffeting issues when the windows are open. It might have cured the problem.

ME ME ME - no sunroof either dawg.
