I guess. Compared to what? It's a 2.0L w/ 160 hp. It's not fast, but it is quick and tuned pretty well. 0-60 for most will be in the 8 sec range some a bit faster some slower. Check the stats, they're out there.

I did a quick search but didn't find anything - is anyone modding their non titanium headlights to make them look like the titanium ones?

I have both MFT and the DCT. I'm a tech geek and MFT is fine and so far the tranny is fine for my drive but bumper to bumper traffic maybe not.

Hey guys, just a heads up. I am subscribed to The Fast Lane Car on YouTube (the people who did the video that was posted), and the reason the car was so slow, is because they are a mile above sea level, and because their is less air density or something, it makes the car slower. Anyhow, if you are at sea level then you can knock off about 4 seconds of that time.

That's a sweet Focus, brochado; you'll have to let us know if you decide to take it home. As far as incentives are concerned, I recommend reaching out to our Marketing Program Headquarters at 1-800-334-4375. If you're on Twitter, you can send a tweet to our verified Twitter account: @FordService.
