It's my first American car too. 1500 miles so far and it hasn't broken down, so it has already exceeded my expectations . It handles great, and I LOVE the MFT, buggyness and all. Having all the controls integrated into one system is awesome. I also love this forum. The very minor shortcomings have easily been addressed with fixes found by other users (Bluetooth mic wind noise, no dead pedal, etc).

First line was sarcastic LOL!! I love the car, it just seems like some new owners consider their major, major purchase to be a mistake...guess they bought too soon, shoulda waited 5 years for every single kink to work out...

I am really impressed with this car. I'm 6'4" and fit fine, which is more than I can say for my 96 mustang, had to modifiy the seat track just to be able to drive it comfortably.
Just started looking the end of Febuary and not really sure if I wanted to buy a car, but saw the candy blue in person and drove one with the options I wanted. That was all it took, I was hooked. None in my area which is funny as there is a lot of dealers in southeast Wisconsin but none in the color and manual trans., had to go north 50 some miles to find two. Paid 100 under invoice and 2000 rebate what a deal.

Agreed, I'm 6'4" and I fit just fine.

I am only 5' 9" and headroom in the car is fine but I keep hitting my head when getting out of it! I can't figure out how, either. Doesn't happen every time but enough to annoy me. Probably just me being blonde as usual! LOL!

It might be that you aren't getting out perpendicular to the car. What I mean by that is, check and see if you swing your legs all the way to the left before you exit or if you are stepping out more toward the front of the door opening. The aerodynamic nature of our Foci certainly limits how much of the door opening is full or typical height.

I've had my Focus for about 1200 miles now, and I just got a 33.9 MPG tankful. BWTM; it's at least 80% around town. That, and it's huge fun to drive, makes it a winner in my book!

Woo Hoo! Just bought a 2012 Focus SE Sedan in Frosted Glass with Package 203A and the Winter Package. Since the wife will be the primary driver, it's got an automatic (I've still got the Bimmer for shifting my own gears)...

I've had my 2012 SE 5 door, Sport pkg, Yellow Blaze for 3 weeks and I love it more each day. After 23 years of driving the family mini-van it was time to have a fun car again. For years I had my heart set on a Shelby GT, but family economics and gas prices forced me to be much more practical. Getting my little Focus in bright yellow with a moonroof, machined alloy wheels, manual transmission, and a decent sound system has been a great compromise. I might not have the fastest or loudest car in town, but it really hugs these mountain roads and made my 23 year old daughter with a turbo WRX jealous. What more could I want!
