2013 Ford Focus SE

On Monday 9/10/12 I decided to test drive a '13 Focus SE that my local dealer had in stock, after looking at it online. I feel in love with it and the dealer let me drive it for a few days, I ended up having it until Friday 9/14/12 which is when I closed the deal with the dealer and bought it. I put about 130 miles on it between when I first test drove it and the time I officially bought it. I had it in my possession the whole time since the initial test drive so it never did sit there where it could have been sold to anyone else. This is my first Focus, and although I've heard a lot of bad about the 1st generation Focus's I've heard they fixed the problems and decided to try one out. So far I'm very pleased with it.

Congrats on the new SE!

Looks good with the aluminum wheels.

Had mine for about 6 months now and for a small car, I'm still very impressed.

Just out of coincidence, I recently went for a ride with a friend who has an older model and there's no comparison between the two. The may share the focus name, but the Mk III's are so much better in every way.

I just picked mine up a couple weeks ago. First time I picked up a new vehicle in the same month it was built. I picked up a black one but really like your red, nice ride.

The build date on my window sticker was 8/4/12. So although I didn't get it in the same month of being made, it is my first brand new vehicle. I actually took possession of it monday, as the dealer let me hold on to it for a few days while I try and work out the deal. So I've had it since monday, but just signed the papers on it and bought it on Friday. The car has been a thrill to drive.

Congrats! I kinda wish I would have held out for a 13', then I wouldn't have hubcaps on my car.

The Ford website says that foglights are standard in the SE hatchback.
I should be getting mine next week (been on order since July 1) and suspect it to not have foglights as well.

Fog lights were standard on hatchbacks for '12, since the lowest trim was SE. For '13 they're now optional on SEs.
