@ttratar - your transmission *does* feel funny - until you realize that it drive suspiciously like a manual transmission and start driving it like it was, only without stomping on the clutch and slamming a lever around. Once you get the hang of that, it truly *is* a fun car to drive.

@jsr72 - we had a radar sign on our street for a while this summer, and I found that at 35, my speedo read 35; at 20, it read 20. Not saying it's that accurate at 120, but... ;-)

In my humble opinion the SEL was the best value in the 2012 lineup.

If your smoking cars in your non-ST Focus then those must be some really slow cars.

The wife and I took a road trip this last Saturday out to the Oregon Coast. From Portland to Astoria, then to Cannon Beach and finally Tillamook before heading back. We received two compliments along the way, one from a gas station attendant and another at Fort Stevens from a passerby; "nice car, love your car!" It's pretty amazing the looks and compliments this car gets considering it's supposed to be an economy model, it sure doesn't feel like one.

Late model Focii were everywhere along the way, they were a pretty rare sight until recently.

We've had our Focus for two weeks and we are loving it.

My wife and I feel the same way.

I have a long commute and I can now enjoy every second of it, even if im stuck in traffic. Thanks Ford! :)
That's a very similar situation to mine. I totalled my '02 V6 Mustang in a freak accident a few weeks back and suddenly I was in the market for a new car. I remembered how much I enjoyed driving a '12 Focus as a rental when I was in Portland, OR back in May and decided to go for one at my local dealership. I've got a Sedan SE with the sports package in Tuxedo Black and I couldn't be happier. It handles great, has awesome gas mileage, and looks real sporty! I love it!!

After having a crappy 2006 Colbalt and being lucky that some guy ran into the side of it totaling it [No one was in the car at the time!] I am the happy and proud owner of a 2012 Focus SEL sedan. I love this car. It is the best car I've driven. And it looks amazing! I get so many compliments on it. I've never had a "looker" car before but I believe this one falls into that category.
