I agree with you, however, i wish ford had seen it's way clear to provide the focus with a state-of-the-art new 6 speed manual (i mean they did it w/ the dct!) instead of the old tried and true fairly obsolete 5 speed they gave us. If i had the option of a 6sp man over a 6sp auto i'd pick the manual for sure.

I regret buying a car within it's first year of production, and I regret feeling angry and frustrated over this car. It's just a travel expense to me now, nothing personal.

If I had bought a 2013, I'd be praising the Focus and Ford. Instead, I'll probably never buy a new car of any make ever again.
