Absolutely In Love

2012 SE Hatchback, 5-Speed with Convenience, Sync & Sound, and Sport Packages. I am absolutely in love with this car. An absolute beauty! Always get looks on the road, and a great sense of uniqueness with a Manual.
Averaging 28mpg (CA Traffic and a lot of aggressive city driving), and leaving plenty of cars in the dust! Fast, good on gas, has a sporty feel to it, and is so responsive and easy to handle on the curves.
I love this car, and I would recommend it to anybody who has Blue Oval Pride and a lead foot.

Looking to invest in some minor mods, looking for 200 Horses.. don't need much more than that in this beauty.

Update at 25,000

I wanted to update my Focus evaluation now that I have 25,000 miles. I still love this car! I use it for long trips and really love the highway performance and gas mileage. When we go out west, where the speed limit is 75 or 80, my Ford Focus is fast, comfortable, and economical. Since I have a hatch, we take the back seat bottoms out, fold down the seat and load it with camping gear and the dog. I have owned several manual transmission cars so the DCT works well for me. I have learned how to determine when the clutch hooks up and how to drop it down a gear or two for passing and hill climbing. I like that Formula 1 sound as the DCT shifts through the gears!
I have done the oil and oil filter changes, rotated tires, replaced engine air filter and cabin filter. That is it. It looks like I will get at least 40,000 miles out of the tires. I will report again at 50,000 miles. Great car.

Wow! I LOVE that color! Is that custom, or is it a factory option where you live?

Factory option in Europe, I'm pretty sure that color is Mars Red.

Just as I suspected. Colorado people are from Mars.
