I love my 2012 Ford Focus SEL Hatchback. But just out of curiosity I visited the 2015 Ford Focus build website and was dismayed to learn I could not replace my car if I needed to. The models offered had changed, the packages had changed, some things are not even available! Yes there were some new things BUT not anything I cared about. Some people advise do not be an early adopter. Let the bugs get worked out. Yes I had a clutch pack replaced. Car shifts fine now and I love driving it. The point is that if I had waited I wouldn't have the car I love! It seems the first year of the redo - 2012- had more choices and more flexibility. If you find a car with everything you want, BUY IT. Don't wait until next year or you might be disappointed. I don't know what Ford is thinking, but their strategy might cost them some sales.
