I was wondering the same thing. Mine was built 11/11 and I bout mid-March. Only had 50 miles and its a nicely appointed car. I wouldn't think it sat on the lot to long.

Same deal with me. Built 10/17, took delivery 3/31. Almost 6 months!

Huh... Guess it's normal-ish then.

Now that I think about it... A decent sized dealer probably has 25 or 50 Focuses sitting on the lot right? How many can they sell in a week? 10? If I'm anywhere in the ballpark, that's an average of around a month on the lot per car. Maybe the real number actually is higher. Plus I'm sure they sit in Michigan for some period of time. Transport takes a while too.

I got 42 MPG on my way home from the airport last night. About a 45 minute drive all highways going about 60 mph. I only have 450 miles on my car so maybe it will get even better. I also got the "Eco Champion" trophy.

Did this thing really sit on the lot for 3 months? I wouldn't think Ford would keep an inventory that long.
It's not Ford, it's an independent dealer/franchise selling Ford vehicles.

I'm aware of that, which is why I made the distinction.

I said I doubt that Ford (the manufacturer) keeps cars a 3-month inventory. So I surmised that it was the "independent dealer/franchise selling Ford vehicles" that had the car for the bulk of that time.

3 months on a dealer lot is nothing. There are still Focuses on the lots built 11/11. And my wife's Taurus was built 11 months prior to us buying it new. Needless to say we got a hefty discount.

I just bought mine 2 weeks ago and it has a build date of 11/11

I drive mine 160 (80 miles each way) highway miles a day. I get right at 37-38 on the way to work and 41-42 on the way home. My wifes focus with the sports package gets almost identical mileage. My Focus has a scangauge2 so it helps me monitor my gas mileage a bit easier.
