Bought my first '12 in May, liked the car. A little disappointed with sound quality. Put new speakers in it and an amp. Traded it on a second '12 in December! Ha ha! Now I have the Sony 10 speaker and the winter package. NOW I am a happy camper!

I got back from Afghanistan and was parked next to a sedan with my buddy. He looked at it from the side and said it must be a German car. We got out and looked at it closer to find it was a Focus! I Now am the proud owner of a SE Sport hatch. In another post I said I love it more than any other car I've owned and its my 17th car. It may not be as fast as my old WRX or Mustang, But it definitely is a better all around "fun" car. Amazing and I do in fact LOVE IT!

Just got my '12 Focus Titanium in black. Wife and I went "looking" on Monday at a couple of dealers. Saw this one, and KNEW I had to have it....beautiful inside and out. 500 miles so far. Fun, sporty and classy!

In the week I have owned it I have had three people come up to look at it and compliment me on the car. That is pretty good considering I have only driven it four times. I asked my GF how many people have complimented her on her new Elantra...survey says!?...

Loving my SE sport! Beat a 1st gen Audi TT the other day to 100kph (180hp FWD manual)... was really surprised until I Googled their 0-60 times and saw they ran 7.6 seconds new.

I got my Focus Ti last Saturday and it's amazing. No transmissions problems, no MFT problems, everything has worked perfectly. Interior quality is on par with a lot more expensive cars. Synced my galaxy nexus up to the car and it got all my contacts and the pictures. Push button start is amazing and I love not having to use any keys except just having it in my pocket to use the car. I came from a 99 ford explorer so this has been a major upgrade. I went with the cloth sport seats as well and they are some of the most comfortable seats I have sat in. The car handles very well also, I have a bmw 328i in the family that I drive regularly and I think the focus handles just as well, other than having slightly slower acceleration. I do wish I could have had the option to add the euro HID LED headlights as an option, maybe that will be an OEM here pretty soon.

Reunited with my Focus today following its PCM replacement. I was worried it might have affected the TCM but shifting was silky smooth.

Driving is fun again!

Love that beautiful growl in low gears. Car and Driver just featured it in their Name That Exhaust Note column:

My favorite response, "THAT'S A FOCUS!?"
