Just bought my second Focus!

I just bought my Black 2012 Focus Titanium Hatch and I pick it up tomorrow! It's got winter package, leather, Nav, parking package, sunroof... pretty much everything. I'm moving up from my dark grey 2005 ZX5 SES. The difference between the two is amazing. I am the second owner, it's got 9,000 kms and I picked it up for $19,000 CDN + the dealership paid three months ICBC insurance premiums and my first months loan payment. The ZX5 was paid off so I decided to hand it down to my little brother who's been driving around a 93 escort for a couple years. He doesn't know but I'm hoping he'll flip out when I hand the keys to him on Wednesday. I've been driving it for almost 8 years and it's been the most reliable vehicle I've ever had. I'm scared of the transmission issues but I've test driven this MK3 about six times over the past week and I haven't noticed any clunky gear changes so Im hopeful I have a solid one.

Anyway, I came across this forum when researching the MK3 and thought I'd register and say howdy. Lots of amazing advice here, seems like a great community! :D

Sounds like a sweet ride, jar311! How nice of you to pass down your previous car to your little brother; you had better be careful or he might want your new Focus, too. ;)

Welcome to the forum!

Congrats bud! You're what an older brother is supposed to be!

Also congrats on getting the dealership to knock off so much off the cost! A win for the consumers definitely!

Very cool, I wish I had a big brother like you!

Enjoy your new ride, it's been over a year since I purchased mine and it still puts a smile on my face every single day.
