2012 hatchbacks w/ leather (SEL or Titanium)

Is it just me or are these vehicles impossible to find?....Have been looking for weeks in the Houston area at multiple dealers and seems they almost never have more than 1 or 2 on the lot (of any type/variety of the new Focus)....

Having trouble picking a color when I can't see more than 1 at a time on the lot.

Wondering how long it's going to be before the dealers start getting some real inventory.

My dealer has an SEL hatch (with leather)... I definitely don't see many SE hatches with leather (like mine).

Posted via FF Mobile I had no idea you could get leather. I saw the red package on a focus sedan with sport pack but the seats were cloth. Now i go to the build site and it says leather.

bbibb, I know how you feel. I was on a 2 week 500 mile radius hunt for an SEL with leather but no MFT. Not going to happen. I did not want to special order since I had the $750 Ford coupon. IMO, SEL is the best value, and they don't sit on lots long. Optioning up an SE to SEL price leaves a bunch of stuff unavailable.

I ended up with cloth from Tommie Vaughn Ford. My wife wanted the leather. They also had a white SEL with leather, $$ paint, and $$ moonroof.

Had the same issue, I had dealer try and trade for vehicles out of area and they were no go, so I just ordered what I wanted...

My dealer found an SEL in the color I wanted, with all the options I wanted. Leather was something I didn't want that much, but now that I have it, I like it.
I took them a couple of days to find my car from another dealer.
