Insurance is really not that high on it. We bought them to have them. Not everyone buys a turbo car for racing. I bought mine because I like the looks if them the seats are comfortable and because it had twice the power as my old zx3

funny, insurance went up a little over 100 a year over my fusion sport while a mustang dropped it almost 150 a year from what my fusion sport is. Not that high?
Hell, I could have sold you my svt thats running over 250 whp @ 9psi and has comfortable seats...

Don't get me wrong, I still like the first and second gen focus. The third gen, I can't get a feel for no matter how hard I try.

trust me, i spent months looking into them. And when performance specs came out on them, lets just say it was a stellar dissapointment 14.8. Could they have found any smaller turbo for the st? c'mon... 19psi in stock trim?
You spent months looking into the ST so you must have thought that something was special about it. It has everything that I want in a hot hatch. I've driven the ST and I think it drives brilliantly. Who really cares about the numbers. It's about the experience. Strong torquey engine with great brakes and awesome handling. Price is on par with anything in it's performance range but you won't find anything with build quality and quality of materials for that kind of money except for the Gti which has gone all boring on us. I drive a 2012 Titanium now and when my lease is up I will probably get an ST. No junky Subaru or Honda junk, I want to have fun in a more sophisticated package like the Focus. It appears that you don't drive one so why do you come to post comments on a forum that supports Focus owners. We are all entitled to our opinion and I think that is great. Just wonder why you seem so negative here. And have you driven one yet. If you do please let us know what you think then.

everything is worth something to someone. There are a lot of vehicles out ther that I would love to have, but can't justity the money for them. People buy cars for what they represent to that person. Or maybe they want it for a spefic reason. I.E., an st has more of a back seat than a mustang does so if you have a family then it would make more sense. However, If I didn't have a family then I would rather have a rwd vehicle. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and deserve respect for it.

I have had my ST for 2 weeks now and its really a fun car to drive. I just put on my winter tires and the driving expereince is still great. I bought the car to replace my old SUV. Wanted something a little more fun but with better MPGs. I own 2 corvettes (68) (04) so I am definately a car junky. BTW I am getting about 30 MPG, I found that the sweet spot for gas mileage is about 68 mph if your intestested.

very nice. i drove a st3 yesterday for the first time and i was impressed. can def see why everyone likes them. handled awesome with plenty of power and a great sound to it. still felt heavy though and didn't really like when the traction kicked in (yes i know it can be turned off). now i'm just waiting for the fiesta st to come out so i can check that out.
