I always found these threads to be awkward because I never know what to say, but I guess its good to be welcomed.

Im here to learn a lot and post often and get a few tips a long the way.

Hey all,

My wife had two 1st gen Ford Focus sedans (2000 and 2004). She eventually had problems driving in snow and the dealer talked her into trading up to a Ford Escape.

Fast forward to today and I'm wishing that I would have talked her into keeping the Focus instead of trading. I drive at least 100-150 miles daily for work, in all weather and all conditions that Wisconsin can throw at me. I actually drove her 2007 Focus within a few miles of a tornado that I did not realize was happening until I got home and saw news from where I was.

My current car (a Plymouth Acclaim) is a tank, but I know that it won't last forever and the Acclaim model isn't getting any newer. I really enjoyed driving the Foci and to me there was no question what my next commuter car would be getting when I compare them to other early-mid 2000's 4cyl cars (Neons, Proteges, and Cavaliers all felt cheap in comparison).

I'm here to read up a bit before I buy one and eventually score a good buy if someone lists a Zx3 near me in my price range.

Edit: Forgot to mention that my wife's grandma just bought a brand new Fiesta and loves it!

Hi Everyone! I'm a Newb!

I just sold my beloved 1992 Ford Mustang LX Hatchback. I've owned it since day one (11-14-1991) and I loved it so much that I needed to place it with the right new owner; the type of owner who could restore its engine and put a lot of time into it. I love cars, but I'm more of a "turn the key and drive it" kind of car owner.

I love the new Mustangs, but the Focus really is just right (like Goldilocks and the Three Bears "just right"). I'm now the proud new owner of a 2013 Tuxedo Black SE Hatchback! I also own a 2006 MINI S which I love, but I'm a Ford Girl at heart so I can't go without a Ford...

I look forward to hanging out with all of you here!

New 2012 Focus in our driveway!!

Last year, my wife and I bought a new 2012 Fusion S to replace my Ford Ranger Sport. It was a nice car and we were pleased with it. However, we decided to get something a little smaller and sportier and Saturday we traded it in on a new 2012 Ingot Silver 5 door Focus SE.

We LOVE our new Focus WAY more than we loved the Fusion. The 2013 Fusions are going to be awesome, but we have no kids, only a dog, so the smaller size of the Focus is a much better fit for us.

We carried over some negative equity from the Fusion, but I don't care. After driving the Focus, we had to have it.
