My new Yellow Blaze 2012 Focus Titanium hatch!









Took it for a drive in Austin hill country to see how she performed. Any worries I had about the transmission quickly proved baseless. It didn't skip a single beat. Had some real fun up a 45mph hill road with 25mph bends, easily taking them flat at 40. That's with the base handling package for this trim.

A yellow Mustang dropped in behind me at some lights on the way back and we exchanged waves. (I also had a random wave and a smile from another driver earlier in the day.) Then, just for fun, I let rip from the lights and the engine noise was fantastic. I wasn't going to beat a Mustang by any measure, but it's still a really fun, enthusiastic ride to 60.

I also found it really easy to keep in lane. I had to work a little hard with my rental Corolla but this thing just goes where you point it and stays there.

Love it love it love it love it. [clap]

That is the first Yellow Blaze Titanium hatch I have seen with those wheels. Super Excellent!! Would have considered that color if I had seen it in person first. The Ford web builder with that color does not do it justice.

I have the same on order but with the black wheels. The stock wheels look really good for sure. I've yet to see a yellow blaze focus in Austin. We will be driving rare colored cars around here for sure!
