this car was rumored for a long time.... I did hope for a more substantial redesign....

however if this is coming as 2007 ... there is stil space for 2009 - 2010 all new MkIII sibling Focus in the us - as rumored.

although as learned from the 2000 focus, never buy a car in its first year of production unless you don't mind going to the dealers for recalls.

Yeah, but who still cares anymore. Imagine how many new Civics and Scions will be sold to former Focus owners by then (along with other better vehicles in this class now - like the new VW Golf, which will start below $16k when it arrives this fall).

I'll personally not buy a ford again until every person in charge of ford is dead or fired.

That new front end is going to look like crap, I think. Are those square headlights? Is it a TEMPO? LOL I'm glad I have an 06 with the SAP!!!!! I'll keep it a long while! I usually trade up on a regular basis. Not this time!

My dad and I are very big Ford fans and we'll continue to buy Fords, but c'mon! For every car maker that takes a step forward in technology, luxury, sportiness, etc... Ford decides to take 10 steps to the rear. If SVT is dead and ST is the next "thing" so be it, but give it some balls!! Stop being glad that it now has 151hp, and the Si has almost 200, SRT-4 has 230 (300hp later), or the Matrix with 180! It was the same with the Mustang "Now with a 260hp engine." Thats great! The Firebird/Camara have only had 305hp for like 3 years already. Wait.......the Mustang was ahead of GM....oh that's right, that's because they killed the F-Body.
Then the GTO was there and spanked the Mustang again. No one could afford the Cobra R because of some greedy dealers who put $20,000+ dealer mark-ups. Hey, why don't we keep using the good ol' 3.0l Duratec with the same 200hp rating the last 8 years and put it into the Five Hundred which probably weighs like a million pounds more than the Taurus. Who cares if the Altima, Accord, Sonata or every other car in your class drives right on by. You know what, I can go on forever but you all see where i'm going with this. LONG LIVE FORD!

Well then, you will never buy another Ford, because the Ford family still runs the show - and they keep breeding. If the decisions were made by the stockholders and non-Ford family members of the board of directors, then things would probably be a lot different.
