hey everyone...

i just wanted to introduce myself... i'm Doug from Janesville and i'm new to the forum... over Thanksgiving weekend i purchased a 2013 sterling grey metalic SE sedan with the 5 speed and standard 200A option group... i searched and searched and actually had a hard time finding my specific one... i ended up finding it on carsoup up in Waukesha at Griffin Ford... the salesman there was pretty decent and knowledgeable... i wasn't really planning on buying one so soon but when i found the one i wanted and at a heck of a good sale price i couldn't pass it up... i've only got 150 miles on it so far but i have to say it's been a fun 150 miles... it's put away in the garage right now and won't probably take it out till spring... i'm currently driving a 94 taurus with 133K on the clock for my every day beater... i also have a 97 taurus SHO with 84K on the clock... i retired my old 94 taurus (silver one) in the spring of 2007 with 238.5K on the clock... been having fairly good luck with ford and knew i wanted to get another one... this time though, i went with the focus for the fuel economy and a decent price range... really love the feel of the 5 speed. my neighbor two doors down has an 08 focus 5 speed and achieved 42 mpg on the highway... i was with him and did the calculation... they seem like they are pretty good cars and i'm happy i bought mine...

thanks for having me and look forward to being a part of the focus family

Doug

thank you!

you are right about the 3.0! both my 94's have/had that engine... my silver one (that went to 238.5K) the engine was still running well but the tranny started slipping and giving me all kinds of problems... my current 94 (dark green) runs like a champ but it's starting to slowly drink fluids... brake fluid, coolant, and oil... gotta make sure i keep a watchful eye on them... it's gotta get me home someday...lol

Welcome Doug!

On a side note, seen an RS today, damn they look good in person.
And went to Farm and Barn and parked next to another focus hatch, all black and Black rims. We matched.
