Retired and Loving My 2012 Focus.

There seems to be a consensus that Focus owners are all 30 years old or younger. I am 63 years old. For the last fifteen years or so I have owned and driven several Mercury Grand Marquis. Before that I owned full sized Chevys, Oldsmobiles and Cadillacs. This week I have just graduated from a full-sized, rear wheel drive, eight cylinder beasts to this beautiful compact, front-wheel drive, four cylinder gem. I've never had more fun.

So I found a new reason to love my focus last night. The door shut on my hand. My left hand was resting near the top of the seat belt. The dor shut completely. But with all the padding over there, my had was a-ok. Just some temporary soreness for about 3-5 minutes.

Dear ford, thanks for the padding!

Hi all, just bought my new SE hatch today, my first new car, and so far I love it. I'm a little apprehensive about the color (yellow), but all in all I'm really impressed with the value for the money. Can't wait to go driving it in the mountains

I am another happy focus owner. I was a little concerned when I first got my car with some funky shifting noises and MFT resets. But now over 5000 miles I am getting terrific gas mileage (~38 mpg avg.) and great performance. I also just love driving it, what a blast, and I think it is a great looking car.

Another new owner here!

2012 Titanium Hatchback - 401A (Leather Package) - Sterling Grey Metallic

Traded in a Saab 9-3 Aero Sedan with 6spd Manual Trans. I miss the speed & handling of the Saab. A fun 4.5yrs.

Focus is quieter, just as comfy, has an automatic trans, uses regular unleaded, no more costly Mobil 1 0W-40 $130 oil changes and a bangin sound system with the MFT.

Dealer gave me a great trade in price & $4,000 off MSRP. I really wanted heated leather but had no interest in all the other pricey options and they had no 401A's on the lot with Cold Weather.

Letting the teenage daughter drive it to school while I abuse the Monte Carlo on my long commute.

I just turned over 4000 kilometers today, and still having a blast. I can't seem to go a day without having a co-worker or friend ask about/comment on the car.

I'm new here, just bought my sterling gray metallic SE hatch on 1/27 and at right about 500 miles on the odometer, I am loving this car! Unfortunately I was not able to get MFT or SYNC, but I think the stock radio is pretty darn good. Of course, I'm not an audiophile so maybe I'm just not picky enough. Anyway, awesome gas mileage, awesome handling, loves the twists and turns of driving around in these mountains. NO road noise, which compared to my last car is a huge blessing! Very comfortable seat, probably the most comfortable seat in a car that I've driven. I also love the position of the headrest, it hits the back of my head at exactly the right spot! Seems like such a little thing, but makes for such a comfy ride. I can't wait to really get this thing out on the open road and put her to work!

To add to this post, I found out that my FoFo's birthdate is 1/11/2012. I took delivery on 1/27/2012. That sucker got from MI to NC and out on the lot pretty dang fast! Actually, I first saw her on the 25th when she was a mere 14 days old. That is just so cool! Okay, so I'm such a geek that I think it's cool at least. :-)

My only complaint, and it is really a tiny one, is that the stupid AUX jack is in the glove compartment! What good is that when I am driving? If that's my only complaint, though, I think we're good! I LOVE FORD and I am loving my new Focus!

Today while out running some errands, I was walking back to my Focus to drop some items in the trunk, and while walking up to it I noticed it was getting some attention. A middle-aged gentleman was giving it a good once-over; walking a lap around it, looking at the decals, and taking a quick peek inside. First time I've seen that.
