Although I'll probably never buy a new car again, I'll look out to never buy a first model year used car either - just too many possible issues.

Hey JPop, I see you're just over in Lewisville, but I don't think I've ever seen you in the area. We should do an NC meet sometime. I know there are a few around the area.

Over the year and half I've owned this car; I've only seen three privately owned Focus's at all; every other one I've seen has been a rental. I don't think I've seen a single Titanium.

In Montreal now. The hotel whisked my Fofo away to stash somewhere. Hopefully they don't break it.

Still no non canadian plates.
Also wtf is going on here. All the traffic stuff is French.

I don't drink at all so your beer stash is safe!

My zip is 02170 ^ for the map?

Coming from a European sport luxury sedan - I wanted a very nice compact commuter that was enjoyable to drive and got good MPG. $4K off MSRP and a good trade in value sealed the deal.

Its been 12-months and 17K miles. No issues. Dealer has about 14 Titanium's in stock, all have the handling package with the 18" wheels. An option I avoided due to the lower mpg, harsh ride, and high tire replacement cost.

I see a bunch of Ti's around the western burbs of Cleveland. My local dealer has a bunch all the time. I was just at the dealer yesterday buying a 13 escape Ti to add to my fleet of fords. I'll post pics after I pick it up Saturday. Zip is 44070
