Go get an ST. You won't regret it! I've only had it three days but it's a fantastic car.

I realize the 12+ Focus is a trade up, but for me I wouldnt do it because:

1. I am not convinced that reliability is at acceptable levels yet.
2. ST looks pretty boy racer. I do like the Titanium.
3. I would like something a bit posher. I am a fan of the Fusion, CMax and Escape.

In summary, a trade to a 12+ Focus is an upgrade, but not enough for me to go for it. Besides, I like our humble 08-11 Focus. They just keep running well. Mine is awesome, why trade?

Hey gang,

For those of you who are considering trading in, check out Intelliprice for a good idea of what the trade-in value of your current vehicle will be: http://cua32514web002.blackbookinfor...ealerid=910001

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,
Crystal
