Yes sir, I still have it. With everything in the news recently about the DCT & Ford knowingly selling them anyways, Iím just curious to see what (if anything) might happen as far as recalls or being compensated etc.

But for just going back & forth to work, the dang car gets 30mpg city & looks sporty + itís paid for, so I just canít justify trading it or having Carvana take it & then also having to pay 12k out-of-pocket for an ST & get worse MPGs & a higher insurance rate.

So at 40k miles, my car should have a ton of life left in it & Iím just going to keep it as my daily. Donít get me wrong, I love how the ST & RS models look, however is daily driving a performance turbo car a good economical decision? Quite the opposite actually.


I say this now & then next week on my commutes Iíll see an ST or RS in traffic & be wanting one again because of how great they look. Lol


For example, I was over the ST & then last week I saw a grey one & had to have it. Lol

Same thing with the RS. I was done with them & then noticed a guy local to me bought a white one & now started looking at the ads again. [emoji23]
