Sounds like a great little car. I've got a Focus Ti 5 door - trying to get my buddy to buy this. LOL

You do wonder why we don't get a three door option since even Kia offers that in their lineup but I'm sure Ford has the bean counters saying it doesn't add up to run another line for 3 doors when the 5 door is the bigger seller.

Personally I prefer the 5 door. Function > Form for me. Great to see reviews coming in for the Fiesta, and they all seem to be very positive. Most of them suggest that the Fiesta ST is even more fun than its big brother, maybe the better handler too. Comparos will be interesting, since it should dominate everything in its class. I'd love to see a Focus/Fiesta comparison with a value proposition in place, although I'm sure it will come down to "Want size? Get the Focus. Don't care about size and want to save a bit of cash? Get the Fiesta."
