Yea I never thought to look at the back end to fix the electrical issues I was having. But it was time for something new anyway.
And trust me, a new focus 5door was my first choice. The dealer didn't have a hatch on hand or a manual transmission. And I couldn't find a dealer in a decent distance with a new ST otherwise I would have one.
I test drove a new focus and fiesta first but than I seen the dart. Had to check it out. I fell in love during the test drive.
They even had one with all the options I wanted except black/red interior and racetrack taillight lens. I put the racetrack taillight kit on myself just the other day for about $500 cheaper than the dealership wanted. And I can live with grey interior.
The other deciding factor was the payment.
I'm satisfied with my purchase.
And hell yea I'm sticking around cuz FF is an awesome community and u can't just walk away from that. :beer:

Everyone has an opinion. That's understandable that not for everyone. I had a few friends that didn't like the focus.
And the ppl I've ran into that refuse to like Chrysler/Dodge is crazy.
It dint bother me. People said my 2000 Kia sephia wouldn't last either. But I took very good care and sold it with 178k on the clock.
