How many hatchback owners hate their non st spoilers?

I do, I just went through the car wash and then went on the freeway. Water is just flying off except for the back, I look in my rear view and water is just chilling enjoying their vacation. I live the focus but if I could change one thing it would be the spoiler for sure

So, it's working great but you'd rather have a car without one.

Aero that cleans the rear window is nice, but it adds drag.

The rear of the focus is creating a vacuum back there, which is causing that.

Spoiler is perfect! Just the right amount of sport for the car.

I have had both. First my 2012 SE hatch, then my 2014 ST3(hatch)
I had no problem with the spoiler on the 2012 SE. True it did help the car gather more than the average dirt when it was raining..
My ST is better. Way less dirt accumulates in the rain. But I can't say I 'hated' the SE spoiler. It was fine IMO.

Where it IS true the ST spoiler is better at not grabbing as much dirt.. I would not have spent $$$ to BUY a ST spoiler, paint it to fit just to say I have less dirt.

So I voted no I do not hate the regular spoiler...

Had a '14 SE Hatchback and now a 2015 SE Hatchback. The only thing I don't like about the SE spoiler is the car wash misses the section right under it so it stays dirty. I have to wash it by hand and get the soap out of there. Not a problem in the summer but it the winter it's kind of a pain but it's no big deal.

I like it. More aerodynamic design for better fuel efficiency

Getting my ST spoiler and mid wing painted soon so I'm hoping it'll stay a tad cleaner.
