Liking what's most familiar?

Is that because that's what you already own? I keep telling myself that my old cars are just as good as the Mk3 Focus I am craving, but I think that's because they're both paid for and I pretty much know them inside-out already. A bit of cognitive dissonance at work in my case.

My biggest reservations over the Mk3 are about whether they know how to build them right yet. No offense, but as far as styling goes, I think they're way better (both the hatch and the sedan) than any prior designs. Of course, that's just a matter of taste.

I personally like the 2nd gen design more than the new design.

Much better than the 2008-2010 design. They should have never done away with the hatchbacks in the 2008-2010 years.

Outside the MK1 SVT the Focus has been largely invisible in the sport compact scene and was never viewed as a "threat" (and if there was it was very far and inbetween) on the street or track but with the MK3 the competition has finally taken notice with solid performance from even the base model to the more serious power/handling from the ST.
I never really paid much attention to the Focus til I hooked up with my wife and she drove an '09 SE and while it was dead reliable for the 32k miles (30mpg all the time) we had it that car just didn't inspire aggressive driving and was just a bit dull overall but when the '12s came out I did a total double take when I saw one on the street for the first time and had to get a closer look.

When my 2002 Taurus was ready to chuck it's AC compressor the other day it became new car time. I work for a company with 20 dealerships that sells almost every make of car. When I started comparing models I found the Focus to have the most unique and aggressive looks. I was sold immediately.

I really like the style of the new focus if its a hatchback not so much if its a sedan though for that I'd take the previous model
