I like it..sedan is awesome. But the hatch...damn I miss the past gen. taillights. 00-07 hatch tails are perfect for the look of the car.. Now they are too low and they have a weird shape. I'm a hatch fan but with the new Foci, i would go with the sedan.

Focus ST

I love the look of the Focus ST but my wife doesn't like the size. I'm torn because, in that price range, I like the WRX, especially because it is AWD.

This thread adds balance

I disagree. I was interested in the Mk3 Focus from the first photo I saw of it. The more I learned about it the more I liked. I wanted a 2012, but have learned the hard way (several times) of the risks in buying the first year of a newly designed model from any manufacturer. Rather than let my enthusiasm override my skepticism yet again, I came to focusfanatics to do some homework.

The bad news from owners dealing with grinding DCT's, wierd MFT behavior, wandering steering, clunky front suspension, shredded front door rubber seals, and so on was pretty discouraging. Often when anyone posts in those threads that they are not having the same problems, some who are accuse them of minimizing the problems and chase them off. This thread is a good place for the positive comments. I appreciate the balance.

What would be more useful would be some objective measure of how many cars have which problems, kinda' like Consumer Reports does by surveying their subscribers. I'm not ambitious enough to attempt that with focusfanatics users, but it would be useful if anyone else is. Until then, this might be the best we have.

NEVER MIND. I was thinking about the "I LOVE my 2012 Ford Focus 100% whoo hoo thread!!" with these comments, not this one. You're right about the name for this thread being obsolete.
