I'm just turning over 10,000 miles after 70 days of owning the car and am really enjoying it.

Single glitch has been the right rear window regulator (made a small click when window was raised) which was promptly fixed by Ford.

Great mileage, great looks.

The 2010 just turned over 36,000 miles and was 2 years old yesterday . . . . looks like it will be traded or sold soon.

Fun cars.

35.4 MPG on a 300 mile round trip in hill country today. I wasn't even babyfooting it.

Got to let the engine rip twice while overtaking on single lane roads. Once to pass a truck/trailer doing 55 in a 70. Drops gear so fast when you floor it! Then a second time to overtake a guy bouncing between 55-65. He made it up to 65 during the overtake (thanks for that, flash-to-pass does mean accelerate) and I ended up merging back in at 90.

Dayum that baby hits high speeds quick.

Booked in for its first wash/wax tomorrow morning.

Sounds like you're having fun with it.. and it's time for a photoshoot.. That wax job should make it shine, lets see some pics (in the correct thread of course- maybe a link back to here would be proper).

On day 5 with our Candy Blue SE Hatchback (Sport) and totally loving this car! I have been a Volvo driver for years, used to turbo etc. but the prices have climbed while quality has not - and I've never bought a new car until now - in fact newest at time of purchase was 8 years old already. So obviously it being brand new is a novelty... but I am very pleased with this car:

1. The SYNC technology has worked flawlessly for me. My husband has had a few issues with it but he spoke too fast/not clearly. If you enunciate it works great. I love being able to change playlists on my ipod without looking away from the road! The steering wheel controls are also awesome.

2. Gas mileage is good

3. I love the powershift transmission. I've always driver real stick but this time went for the auto - and I love how it feels like a kind of hybrid. It's very responsive unlike some autos and gets gas mileage as good as I could with stick.

4. Comfy seats!

5. Great handling - it rained last night and the car felt so solid and safe

6. It looks so cool, even co-workers asked about my new "hip" car

Been driving the wife's 6sp Auto once in a while for 6 weeks. Liked it a lot. REALLY started lovin' it after the DCT TSB.

I've got 100 miles on my 5 spd manual now. Still glad I got the manual. It felt a little stiff at first but either I got used to it or the shifting has gotten smoother. Makes me want to go for a drive. Gee, that was never the case with my 2001 Nissan Frontier.

I love the color, love how it looks even as a sedan, love the Kona blue color, love every inch of the interior (even the sport package mesh trim haha), love how well Sync works and the non-MFT colorscreen LCDs for the radio/trip look, love how supportive and well bolstered the seats are (even in the back), love the craftsmanship and materials, especially on the dash, love the wraparound interior, love the mileage and the pickup, love how well this car handles even on all seasons, love the lightness but decent feedback from the electric steering (something no one can get right these days) and its one of the smoothest shifting manual Ive ever driven with a very easy clutch in traffic. An absolute pleasure to pass the miles in what else can I say, not a single complaint except the trunk hinges infringing on cargo space. only 11k miles on it though, I just hope it's as bulletproof as the old faithful Celica its replacing (Focus has to beat 240k miles haha)
