Just one thing? Sorry, can't do it. I really like my car but this is my list of things that I think should have been standard...

Either make the gearing taller in the 5 speed or make it a 6 speed
Bigger gas tank (it looks like they actually fixed this in the 2015s)

Should have been optional
HIDs
AWD

Make MFT actually awesome...
It needs to do Daylight Savings properly, needs AppLink and really needs to be able to pair to 2 phones at once.

Better DCT upshifts
Painted lowers
Exhaust looks cheap (5$ tip) and better a hole in the rear valance.
Door trims loooks cheap(cloth) I have leather seats
Lower price please...30K plus taxes is a lot of dinero
Slap some cloth trim on the trunk lid ...the bare wiring looks ridiculous

I did not buy the Titanium because this car was already 27K plus taxes a Titanium was pushing 30K which is too much for a Focus. Resale sucks I was offered 12K less than what I paid for 4 months 4000 after initial purchase date. I was supposed to trade in the Focus for the truck...... I was so insulted that decided to keep it....it's paying for itself with the gas that I'm saving. Ford please revise your prices.

I still love the car

3.5 ecoboost should be an option :)
Can't choose just one: 200 horse,awd, limited slip and about 500-750 pounds lighter.

As a ti owner first thing on the list for me is that dumb shifter for the DCT like WTF?

if you want manual buy a manual xO should have been paddel shifters but not to worry ill probably find some way to use the fusions steering wheel to convert it when i have the money too xD and just disconnect the one on the stick.

Other than that I don't have issues with anything else.

Oh but I have one with the design team not seeing the potential in this car could have been one of the next BIG sports sedans for the sedan models but w.e

Speaking of love/hate with tuxedo black, i already have a couple rock chips in the hood and some various swirls(lifht enough that i am there only person that would ever notice).

When it gets semi nice again i need to buy a DA polisher,some clay, and wax/sealer and detail it right.

This weather is freaking driving me nuts. I thought maybe I could wash the ride this weekend, only to find out it's supposed to snow on Sunday night. JUST STOP ALREADY.
