Back on topic; I love my first Ford. Just did a long drive from NY to Florida and back. 1100 miles each way, my wife and I did the whole trip in one day (each way). Driving in no traffic on the way down and just lost 1 hour in traffic on the way back 17 and 18 hours respectively, doing about 9 to 14 MPH over the limit, full load of luggage and all 4 seats filled still got 34 MPG. The focus was nimble zipping in and out of lanes and the roads were smooth except Florida (hint: take the stimulus money, it's there). Stereo, visibility and comfort were all good, could use a bit more legroom in the back and the hatch was barely adequate for our stuff, but we will never see the wagon here I guess. Now it just needs a good wash. Cheers!

Loving the candy red and it does have quite the variations in shades depending on the light more than any other color I've owned.

Mine's got a bunch of bugs plastered to the front of it right now...

So... I have Sirius... and I drive down Ohio Route 8 every day... my Sonic Blue SE Hatch lends a new meaning to "80s on 8..."

XD

Just pegged 105 (only for about 10 seconds) and was amazed at how "planted" the car felt, even changing lanes !

I hit 105 the other day and was greaty amazed at how sturdy the car was. My friend was also amazed as well. I held it the for a couple seconds. This car is absolutely amazing. I love everything about it. Taking corners is much fun now. It gets such grey gas mileage now that I go for me drives now just for the heck of it

Newbie 2012 SE Focus

I LOVE my new 2012 Focus SE. Drove off the lot with only 7 miles on the dash! 2 days break-in and already looking at mods. This car is clean and ready. Any suggestions???

Best I've seen so far is 90-92 - several times. And it does feel incredibly planted at that speed. It feels determined, too.
