Technically this thread was for the MKIII (2012+) Focus models, but that is interesting. Why did you leave the timing belt exposed like that? That seems like a terrible idea.

Audi dropped the wagon versions of the A4 and A6, the allroad is another x-over like the XC70.

BMW dropped the 3 and 5 series wagons for the X3, X5, X6 and the 3 and 5 series Grandturismo crossover/ sports activity vehicles in the U.S.

The only wagons we do get that aren't tarted up into crossovers are the Jetta SportWagen, the Acura TSX sport wagon, the Subaru Impreza (although technically that's more of a hatch than a wagon), the Mercedes E-class wagon, the Cadillac CTS wagon. I'm not really aware of any other wagons currently on sale in the U.S.

It's a very nice hatch. Shifter and clutch feel is much better then my Ti. Only about 3 mpg less on average as well.

That must be nice. I haven't driven one, so I haven't done too much research into gearing and what not. The shifter on the Focus felt perhaps a touch notchier than on my old Prizm (nee Corolla), but the gear ratios were essentially identical minus the larger rolling radius slightly moving the final drive taller on the Focus. The clutch felt much the same however. It might just be my memory however, as I only drove one manual normally aspirated Focus a while ago and the shifter was in a slightly more awkward position relative to my seated position for the clutch and the wheel afaik, but given time it would have become normal.

I did drive the ST a few more times though on different occasions, and apart from getting used to the 6 speed's gear placement to avoid going up or down to the wrong gear my only real concern was the light yet stiff clutch pedal that was more sort of an on/off switch when it engaged. I was able to smoothly microslip the car into gear to get it to pull away smoothly with practice, but changes between gears is a bit trickier sometimes. The turbo was very nice though.
