Dear Blah, Read the whole post, my main concern was with Ford Motor Co. I was just relaying my experience to someone that wants an opinion. You love Ford,I had a problem with Ford. I can tell you where you can buy a red 2012 Focus SEL, it's still for sale.

understand your frustration... I would have waited a bit more but you had your reasons, just FYI....I'm in the auto parts business. I sell tons of Vue parts & fit and finish seems bad from what dealers tell me. hope yours is ok. but you likely will regret the Chevy pick.. aka "Saturn". this car is likely was from period when gm was floundering and was verge of collapse. they gutted Saturn to a former shell of itself. just watered down 1st gen. equinox to what u have. good luck. I had 2008 Equinox as a company car. trash!!

With a $13k budget, it wouldn't be a bad idea to look at some previous generation cars rather than something so new. You could get some seriously reliable, well-equipped cars for that price if you don't mind looking a few years older...
