Welcome home and thank you!I got back from Afghanistan and was parked next to a sedan with my buddy. He looked at it from the side and said it must be a German car. We got out and looked at it closer to find it was a Focus! I Now am the proud owner of a SE Sport hatch. In another post I said I love it more than any other car I've owned and its my 17th car. It may not be as fast as my old WRX or Mustang, But it definitely is a better all around "fun" car. Amazing and I do in fact LOVE IT!
I do that almost every weekend. I decided to kill some time today and take my car out into hill country around Austin. Lots of windy roads. The focus is a really fun solid feeling car to drive.
x2 !!had my transmission software updated and recalibrated last week, and all i can say is if ford had released the update 8 months earlier, the elantra would not be "car of the year".
Great job ford, you made the focus into the great car i knew it could be. Took a couple software patches, but such is the plight of the early adopter.
Yep, check this thread out for the TSB update:My only quibble is sometimes the transmission can be wonky (but not bad by any means). I thought I read somewhere about a software fix?
Fast, good looking, great MPG...does this car have a downside?
German engineered! So your still ok!Hello, my name is 'fourcircle', and I'm addicted to German cars.... until now.
VW then Audi then BMW then BMW then Mercedes then Ford? Somebody wake me up.
The Focus is for my wife, but I have car envy, and bad. It's a blast to drive, great on gas, oozes quality, a tremendous value, and if it gets some miles on it or a little scratch, so what?
It's hard to believe that you can buy two Titaniums for the price of one German make, and the Focus is arguably the better all around car.
Hello, my name is 'fourcircle', and I'm addicted to, er, uh, Fords? (there, I said it).
