My new ride

Just picked this up. '13 Ignot Silver Focus SE HB. Manual. 201a, Moonroof, Winter Package. Also found out I have the PZEZ motor. Hard to find the loaded sticks..had to bring it down from MD. Had the dealer add splash guards and a keyless entry pad. Also put a cargo area protector in. Yakima roof racks going on in a few days and K&N drop in on the way as well. Finally, had the windows tinted to VA's limit of 35% fronts and hatch and 50% rears. I don't buy new cars often so when I do...I go all out! Love the car, the Sync, the awesome wheels, and the smooth manual. Very quick and nimble little car. Will be primarily commuting 60 miles each way to work so it will rack up the miles quick. This is replacing the last new car I bought in 1999...a '00 Jetta. She has 215K and is ready to be retired. Enjoy.

I sort of have the 2012 version of your car: 2012 Ingot Silver SE (Sport) hatch with 5MT. I'm in Williamsburg and had it brought down from Baltimore because it was so much cheaper to buy there.

I bought mine in August (only 7,800 miles so far) and haven't had any problems with it.

Nice buy and I like those wheels also. Looks like a similar setup of mine minus the winter package and wheels and outside the AC bearings going at 96 miles we've been trouble-free in the 8000 miles since we bought it 11 months ago;can't believe it's almost been a year.

It's unfortunate that many folks have lost the ability to drive a stick. I test drove a Golf TDI w/a 6-spd..the kid at the dealer couldn't even pull it around for me..I had to b/c he couldn't drive it. A lost art. I just don't like small cars w/autos. Plus, I saw lots of people complaining about the DCT and figured...."I'll switch my own gears thanks!". One of the main reasons Consumer Reports dissed the Focus is the tranny issue + My Ford Touch. I figure since I didn't' get either...it must be a "buy"
