I traded in an 05 Explorer for my Focus. I stopped missing the extra room of the explorer on the 3rd day I owned the focus when I had to fill it up. LOL

The atmosphere between the Navigator and Focus are sooo different. Now, I like the ride the Focus has to offer, (much improvement has been made) comfort, mileage $$$, and I have just had to make a few adjustments for traveling with travel softball (daughter) like a smaller cooler, up dee do may stay at home or have someone else take it. I can still plug in any accessories computer, Ipod, etc....

But for my husband and I when the last one goes to college in a year it will be perfect. The big vehicles were great when I had to travel with everything but the kitchen sink. Good times yes especially when you have parents night out....time for new memories.

With the fold down seat 60/40 there will be plenty of room I believe. Now for the trip to the Lake....Just might have to take the F150 too

race red sel love

My 2003 red se was about to hit 260,000 miles. Until a herd of deer destroyed her. I loved that car. My new 2012 race red sel is a stunning beauty. Ford has made a wonderful car. My co workers can't believe the build quality. Its been one week so far and I'm in love with my new car.

I just picked up my white platinum titanium today. I love the steering weight and the handling. It feels really stable and planted. The only thing that annoys me is the terrible turning radius because I have the handling package.

Was driving at the local dive mall today when I ended up at a t-bone intersection to leave the property. The car across from me was in a new sterling grey focus sedan. The guy driving looked at me in almost a mentos commercial moment and honked his horn as he drove by. I'm pretty sure if we had our windows down we would have high fived... It was hilariously funny...lol

Welcome to the forum, sorry to hear that you lost a good car but I'm sure you will like this one a lot more

My second week and I am still excited as hell to get behind the wheel. Absolutely love the S mode when zipping around on the highway. Have a buddy who has the mind set that if its domestic, its crap. Until I showed him everything the car has and how great the build quality is for the price I paid.....he was impressed, thou still a BMW head.

Mine rolled over 1000 miles and the trans keeps getting smoother. There used to be a hesitation or so I thought taking off but it seems to have really smoothed out

Just had a triple Focus moment at the lights.

Grey SE hatch in front of me, silver SE hatch in the right lane. I wanted to squeeze my yellow Ti over to the left lane so it'd look awesome for the cars on the other side of the intersection, but no dice.
