i think im going to stick to old school foci, they will get cheaper, there will still be lots of parts for them and they might even get cheaper too :)

Man it sucks to see the focus take such a dive-bomb....now all those focus haters out there are going to win . Although the inside with all the lights on is pretty cool lookin'. And also, that second set of pics look way better than the first set...

Are those folding mirrors????? That's a bonus if it is. Knowing some of Ford's past brilliance, I'd assume it's just the folding look.

I don't like factory radios that I can't remove without a fascia kit that costs $$$. That is enough to keep me from Ford. It doesn't appear to be more aerodynamic than the 05-07 from looking at the fender's front corner.

Thank you for putting the antenna in the rear, but why isn't it electronic?

Thanks for the new side styling, but where will the bumper to cushion Soccer Moms who kick open their SUV door at the supermarket be without looking goofy?

Where's the dual element headlamps? HID?

Thanks for the center instrument cluster, I hope those gauges actually tell the driver something real.

I'm up in the air over it, but it looks as if those fenders might fit on an 05 depending on where the styling ridges start. Of course it's a total shame that there's no wagon. Boooooooooo on you for forcing me to buy a Caliber (if I was buying)

Interior is not to bad, but either way the car is ugly thumbs down. This could be my last focus I own.

I won't buy a focus again unless they make a hatch.

wow. I must say I'm torn. The interior is amazing. I love all the features and the lighting. It's amazing!! The exterior?!? wow. I mean impressive numbers in the article, and yah the front looks like a chevy and the sides a saturn and the rear is meh, if it rides like they say it does I'll def. consider buying one. I'm DEFINATELY going to test drive one when they come out for sure. If it is quite, handles better than my SVT, and is a decent price I might not even wait to see how the C30 is considering that is suppose to be hella expensive. Who knows?!?

PS: I still don't understand why everyone complains about a damn radio. I mean comeon it has a usb port and sync. wtf else do you want?!? 15 10in subs to blow out your eardrums?!?

Meh...you'll get what you pay for with the C30, not to mention what would you rather have under the hood; a N/A Duratec 2.0 or the Volvo turbo I-5 that's in the MkII ST? The aging C170 chassis or the much stiffer C1 chassis? The C30 is going to be the better buy.

If it still drives like a Focus, and is a good price, why not? This is something I was definitely not expecting!

The Focus is over in North America. This thing is disgusting. I love that 50-button radio cluster. That'll be fun to switch with an aftermarket.

Ford has ruined this car.

haha again everyone not buying a car because of the radio...WHEN the radio will have more features than somethin you will prolly put in it anyways. I mean did you read about sync?!? comeon now. Anyways I am overexagurating a bit on waiting for the C30 cause I love that thing. I am gonna wait till that comes out cause I just love it, but I will test out the focus for sure!
