New Focus owner (sort of)

My mom and I just bought a brand new 03 SE for my dad. It has the 2.3 liter engine and I can't believe how awsome the power is! I mean for a four cylinder it is great, it feels like the V6 in my mom's Jetta. The handling and ride are awsome. I knew they would be because I spent a week with a brand new loaner Focus wagon a while back (wanted a Focus ever since). At the time I thought the 2.0 130 hp engine was good, but this 2.3 blows it away.

My dad originally wanted the Elantra GT. I test drove it and wasn't impressed at all. The engine had nothing. The brakes were power assisted, and they didn't feel too good. 4 discs or not, I didn't like them. It was a lot more expensive too.

I can't believe they gave us $3000 off, I mean the car would have been a good deal without that cash back. We bought it cash so their are no finance charges. I am so phyced about this car. My mom wants to give my dad her 01 VR6 Jetta and keep the Focus, but he isn't having it.

I look forward to hanging here!
