I just 3 weeks ago,traded my 14 se focus,for a 18 fusion, Whow what a dif,now if you like the sporty,choppy ride,then it's focus,but I got real tired of going on a 3 hour trip and being sore when I got there, my new fusion has the 17 inch tires on it,and they have rubber between the mag and ground, mischilin,energy tires,this car just flotes ,I think ford is marketing a big mistake,some of us want a road car feel,also the sticker on the Fusion was 27 before tax. I paid 18,500. 6k from ford,and after having 3 dealers competing for my business,they ate the rest.anyway,now is the time to buy. You could prob get a new focus Dr for 16k

I think there may be a run on remaining STs.....i just picked my 2017 up for a decent price. Iíll probably drive it into submission. Last of the manual fire breathing hot hatches. Savor the moment.

I like the Fusion but itís just a little to big for me. But I know what you mean about long drives in a Focus. Iíve got a Ď13 Titanium & my back is always killing me on a long trip & it also has the upgraded 18Ē factory wheels which also adds to the poor ride.

Thereís still plenty of Ď18 brand new Titaniumís left & Iíve also been looking at some of the used ĎSE Sport pkg.í Hatchbacks. Those look very nice with all of the painted bottom moldings.

I'd be really figuring out what your 1st priority is? Comfortable no back issues or another of the same but newer? To big? You were checking out RS/ST's also. Have you checked out the Fusion sport's w/ the p/u truck motor? Reading what you mentioned & also what you made treads & posted about st/rs's & now reading about your bad issues, Really need to open up your horizons & test drive a fusion sport, have a look at the features.......

I was just watching Raitiís Rides on YouTube about the 2019 ST-line Fiesta. Itís a non-turbo Fiesta But has the ST styling. Price point was about 20k. It looks nice but Iíd probably opt for a left-over Titanium Focus.

Yep but I honestly just donít like how the WRX looks & really would prefer a Hatch vs. a sedan.

I'll stick with my more subtle-looking, front-wheel drive hot-hatch with a full-size spare and regular interior ergonomics, thank you.

For some reason Iíve just never been a big fan of the Mustang. That said, every time I see an ST or RS I always tell myself how much Iíd love to own one.
