I did see an SE Kona Hatch on a lot (before I got my car), but it didn't strike my fancy as much. I don't know why, but I just love the look of the Sedan -- but that is just my personal opinion (no offense to hatch owners out there).

To each their own.

I like them both, but I'm still convincing myself that the hatch was the right choice...

Can't vote yet, As i just joined due to buying off lot Yellow Blaze Focus Friday August 26.
No cars i would even consider anywhere in my Metro area. The options had To include a manual transmission, AND a bright color, preferably Yellow.

but one dealer did a search and the great saleman told me just one in his trade area.
After awhile i left that local dealer as things were bogging down, with no feeling of yeah they are gonna get THAT car for me.
So that night (Aug 25 evening) I started searching for the car. As luck would have it, i found a site to search with keywords like Yellow and manual and Focus, and up pops my car! 60 miles away in a small rural town. And yeah it is the only one in 250 mile radius, and the only one with everything I want for even more distance!
So next day I go try a manual in silver locally which i did not like, nor the saleperson,,
Then i was looking at the car on the Yellow car dealers site and see the saleman is online available for a chat. (WOW) So I chat, an hour and a half later I am there buying the car.
It was a no dicker deal, as he knew I really wanted to car (I just drove 60 miles to buy it)
They did have an internet discount, so I got that off.
(ADDED: also, they did not have a jacked up dealer prep fee. metro it was $600, at the small town dealer, $125)
And in two more hours I was driving my new Focus home.
I had to leave my old car there just sitting. I either have to go back on the bus or train, and pick it up. (they did not offer me anything for my 1999 SVT Contour, it is pretty beat up. good driving, but a LOT of small flaws, and too many miles. One of the staff there does also have an interest in the SVT, so...)
Ford used to send me incentives all the time, but not in the past few years..
I didn't know about some of the ones I could have done, only the 500 cash if Ford financing. So i did that with $0 down, 100% financing at 3.9% So i am satisfied with that. (Glad my credit was good to go zero down)

PS the survey is skewed, as BLUE has two colors, and really should be just one. The red is different enough, but also might be better represented as one color.
So BLUE is the second most popular. though the grey spectrum (Black white silver grey) still outsold the colors.

You don't have my color in the poll, Oxford White...

If I didn't choose this it would be either the platinum tri-coat white or the blue with the tint-coat.

Blue Candy also. It was between Blue Candy, Kona Blue, Race Red, Red Candy, and Yellow Blaze. Went with the SEL which ruled out yellow. Then boyfriend didn't like Kona. Blue Candy was my favorite of what was left :)

I've personally never liked the "basic" color cars. I would never buy a car in white, grey, black, silver, etc... Just a personal preference I guess
