I had the transmission grinding issue like a lot of other people here; the dealer swapped it out at about 20k, and it's been pretty good since.

Signed the papers yesterday and will be trading in my 2010 Blue Kia Forte Koup SX for this 2012 Red Ford Focus SEL today! Looking forward to learn more about the Focus from you guys and add a few mods as well. Originally, I went to the dealership to check out the Malibu Hybrid they had in stock and I couldn't afford to buy it. Then they told me that this 2012 Red Focus SEL (low mileage and a lot of goodies, heck even more than my Kia) is in my budget and took it for a test drive. And I'm SOLD!

New wheels are growing on me but need some warm weather to give it some real TLC.

Shadows can be deceiving, the lf side is shaded and in shadow which makes it look darker.

That's not shadows. That's a Ti headlight for sure.
