I voted "decent job" but I will def wait for the performance version or until the Ecoboost option goes into play before I get one. I was really looking forward to my engine going out so I could drop a fresh one in and go crazy, but this makes me want an update. The looks are much better than my 03.

Looks pretty decent. The tail lights I'll have to get use to.. But overall I think they did a pretty good job on the new focus. Thumbs up
Sold the focus

A decent job. The stance is a big improvement over our current models. The tail-lights and side lower-fascia openings are dramatic but a bit awkward-looking to my eyes. I do like the structural improvements Ford describes. The interior is a bit over-styled to my taste, but the upgrades in materials are more important than the shapes of the vents to me, so I could live with such visuals for the sake of better feel and lower interior noise that can be expected. The engines seem like a nice step forward; I'll wait for pics with the hood open and hope that the wiring comes without the electrical tape bits falling off the harness, as in my '09. Will we get an Eco-Boost 2.0? Will there be a for-real, six-speed manual? Stay tuned...I might even consider trading in my '09 after the new ones have been on the market for a couple of years, something I've never done with a car before.

No thanks. I like the front view as it looks really agressive. The side and rear though look too much like the Matrix or a Kia. The dash is way too busy. I love my 2007.

I dont like it.

I really don't like the hatch, as said above, It looks like a minivan. I guarentee when somebody sees you coming, its not some cool car, it's a minivan they'll think.

The interior is way to crazy for me. To many angles.

The Sedan, it's alright, much better than the hatch IMO, but in the end, it just looks like a tC.

I'm surprised no one has said "Hate It" yet. I like it, but I still think the newer WRX looks better.

Looks pertty good. Like the sedan better. But in all honesty I like my 09 better. I might change my mind when I see it in person.
