Lmao. Actually, in my old car I could tell if I was speeding on the highway just by the frequency of my bad wheel bearing - it was convenient. Now I have to look at the speedometer... ugh.

I traded my 09' SRT Charger for my Focus and it has been the best decision I have made. All the problems listed above, sound like the problems I had with the Charger i.e transmission, brakes, paint, navigation that car was a piece.....Anyway my focus has been perfect and am glad I made the move to come back to Ford!

No regrets so far. I came out of Audi A3 to this car, and I honestly think it's 90% of the A3 for 60% of the money. My plan was to buy the car over 3 years, and turn it over to the kids when it's paid for, but right now, I don't want to give it to them! In three years I'll want something new though (know thyself).

We'll see what regrets I have in 5 years. I don't have a ton of faith in the DI motor. We'll see how it holds up.

Love the car. Transmission is slowly breaking in. Worst part about it is starting out in reverse since it's still a bit touchy.

My only regret is not finding an SE model with the Winter Package. I have a feeling I'll be needing the heated side mirrors this winter.

The car handles and rides great, and my fuel economy in the 2012 is about two MPG better than my 2009 Focus. The car has a real solid feel to it.
