I have two big regrets now.

I regret taking my car to Hines Park Ford and allowing them to work on it.

And I regret contacting Ford customer service about the problems I noticed afterwards. They did nothing for me, unless you want to count wasting my time and suggesting that I'm crazy. Oh, and listening to my angry rants. They did a lot of that. Little else, though.

In the past, I used to enjoy driving my Focus around. My wife and I would go touring in it. Now, I can't stand driving it, so it remains parked. I'd much rather be going for a ride somewhere and doing something on a lazy Saturday. Instead, I am sitting around the house, posting about how dissatisfied I am. /me sighs

No regrets here beyond not waiting for the ST. Hell, I don't even regret the orange wheels! I still get compliments on them all the time. 5 speed, so no DCT problems, never had any MFT problems (knocks on wood...). There are a couple of rattles, but I just need to get it to the dealership and let them check those. Very happy with my purchase.

My biggest regret is that I didn't get the handling package, didn't get a moonroof and got the car in black. It's all relatively minor regrets though in the grand scheme of things.

My wife misses the power of our turbo PT Cruiser but I am getting to enjoy it now on a daily basis. But she loves the heated seats, much better than the ones in the PT. She also loves the ambient lighting.

I expected the sunroof to retract all the way but it doesn't but that does not detract from the enjoyment of it being open. I would have preferred an oil pressure and volt meter instead of the display between the speedo and tach but it is what it is. I would have also preferred the key and fob to be separate but again it is what it is and it does it's job.

When we went shopping for a new car one requirement was that it had hands free connectivity for our cell phones and a nice to have would be integrated navigation. MFT with navigation did not provide enough usefulness to be worthwhile for the cost. The basic sync provided the connectivity we wanted with the added bonus of USB connectivity for an MP3 player.
At 21k miles and still no regrets. Everything is still as it was in my first post.

I have enjoyed it enough that i went out an bought a 13 ST to park next to it. :)
