Hey I had a Saturn before too. Also went for manuals due to 1) reliability 2) fun, and 3) they are cheaper!
Definitely heard about the issues that the Focus autos were having. Still trying to get used to 1st and 2nd after my Saturn's clutch, but loving it. I agree with whoever said that you have to shift "unnaturaly" soon to get the best MPG and follow the upshift light. It just sounds so good revving it a bit more.
Wish it had a 6th gear.
