Same here... I intentionally didn't let myself re-adjust it for a week to make sure I wasn't going crazy.

In those seven days or so it dropped from being in my ideal position (where you just barely see the headliner at the top of the mirror) down to the point that you were mostly staring at the cargo shelf... barely any of the back window was visible.

Wasn't 'sport suspension' removed from the 'Sport' pkg after a while? Don't see it listed on any new Focus Sport's window stickers.

ETIS continues to list the three different suspensions. When my car is delivered I plan on physically cross-checking the part numbers with the Ford Parts site and will report back.

For all we know, Ford will continue to offer the sport-tuned suspension on 2013 builds (likely standsrd on Ti builds and maybe included in the Appearance Package or Black Pack?). We just won't know for sure until people start taking delivery and have a look for themselves.

I'm just about to pull the trigger on a 2012 Ti (thought I could order one till I read the earlier posts). Looks like I will have to let my dealer try and find me one with the trim I want. Red Candy, Nav, Standard 17's, Winter pack, and Leather.

Do you think it would be worth me waiting an ordering a 2013? All the added goodies (Self start, backup cam) is definitely enticing.

Posted via FF Mobile Im not saying anything until the pricing and everythig is official and its up on the Ford Build page...Im excited about some stuff (17s standard on SE with apperance, Standard Sync and Convience) but not happy about other things (if you really cant get the "sport" pkg on the blue candy because the red tuscany package doesnt match that is idiotic, add the all black leather ford, is it really that hard?)

I'm about 90% sure the 2012 Focus Ti is my car of choice right now.

Since I can get a used 2012 for under $20k, is it worth going that way or should I be waiting for the 2013?

The Focus is going up against the standard fare: Mazda3, VW Golf, Impreza, Kia Forte5. So far it seems to offer the best price vs features.

No need to wait for the '13s. The only downside is slightly decreased resale / tradein value due to the model year. I say go for it!

Appearance: $2,530
Ruby Red: $395
Reverse Sensing System: $240
Total MSRP: $23,255

My SEL Premium stickered for only $23,085 AND has the following additional that the '13 SE replacement wouldn't have:

Dual Zone Auto Climate Control
Rain Sensing Wipers
Chrome Belt Line

That my friends is what's called a BAD DEAL!!!! So glad I have my '12.

Edit: OK, you do get Sirius and rear spoiler with the SE Appearance. But still, not worth an extra $170 and the loss of the dual zone climate control to me.





I agree. The 2012 SEL was better equipped than what you can add to a 2013 SE now. Living in Tucson where it is very hot, I love the auto dual zone control system. Set a temp and forget about it. And now that I have it, I would hate not having the built in garage door opener.
