What I Drive: 2007 Focus SL hatchback

Hello, I just bought a 2007 Focus hatchback SL and I'm Lovin' the gas mileage. My previous car was a 88 Chevy Blazer and I probably got about 10 MPG. I don't really know because I never checked-just too depressing. Having a car that gets this kind of mileage has really changed my life. I can actually afford to do some traveling. The car is completely stock and runs great.

I always do all of the work on any vehicle that I own. Can anybody tell me what is the best manual for my car? I saw the Haynes manual at the parts store but I know there must be something better.

I'm also looking for a recommendation for a roof rack that will work for me. I plan to find a receiver hitch and get a rack for my mountain bike. I'm going to have my buddy weld up the rack so that I'll be able to open the hatchback up with the bike on the car. There will also be a removable "T" that will stick up to the same level as the roof rack so that I can carry my kayak. I guess that the problem is that with the 2 dr. model, the two roof racks can only be a couple of feet apart. So how can I carry my boat or a 4x8 sheet of plywood or whatnot? I mean w/o making a custom rack as I'm suggesting.

Anyway, looking forward to being a part of the forums.

New old guy here. The wife just bought a 2012 Sterling Gray Metallic 5 door SE. It's not loaded just a basic car. I came here just to keep up with recalls and the such. No mods planned until the warranty runs out, Then it will only be intake, exhaust and wheels.
I am active on the Lightning forums, ModularFords and VTCOA as well as a few chicken forums.
I drive an 99 Oxford white Lightning with intake, exhaust, JDM tunes, 2800 stall PI converter, built trans., adj. shocks all around, long bars, lowered 2" in the rear. It's currently the 2nd quickest stock pulley truck with a best of 12.68 in the 1/4.
I also have a 94 Oxford white Flairside XLT that I'm slowly restoring. 1 owner no dents but, needs paint. The wife bought it at a yard sale.
I'll find my way around soon enough just need to search more. I'm trying to find my build number and date, is it on the window sticker?

Liking this car a lot so far

I joined this site a few weeks ago while I was shopping for a 4 door hatchback with a manual transmission. It was either a Focus SE or a Mazda3 with the skyactiv engine, because there aren't too many other choices in the US at the moment. I got the Focus yesterday.

I really wish Ford had put a 6 speed on this car, but at least the MTX-75 is tried and true, and it's had almost all the friction engineered out of it. I had the same transmission in my 98 Contour, which I swore would be my last Ford. But, here I am again....back to the Blue Oval mommy.
