I love those rims!Hi: All... paid top dollar to a Ford retiree. Then paid more to get the balance of extended warr. It's a very low miler, very clean car. 3 yrs. old but only driven for 1 1/2 yrs.
2012 SEL hatchback. No complaints except the $$$'s
I have always been an import fan, and a ford fan. in the 70's & 80's ford's sucked, I LOVED mustangs and had a few from 75-86 but always wanted the fuel efficient sporty imports. The new focus is a decent car but the auto tranny scares me to death..... My wifes Focus has one and that made me get a man 5sp. My car has been fine for it's 13k miles and the wifes 36k auto has been in the shop 3 times under 2 recall/TSB's and still I don't like the way it shifts/ takes off.I am a lifetime (35 year+) Ford driver: '66 Mustang, '76 Capri, '86 Ranger, '86 Escort, '67 Mustang, '95 Ranger, '96 Ranger, '01 Explorer, '07 Focus, '01 Explorer, and now a '12 Titanium. By far my Focus is my favorite car (the other vehicle in my stable is a BMW, and I prefer the Focus), but I regularly think of selling it, taking the money & updating an '01 Explorer with 2015 equipment. And I only think about doing this because I wonder about the long-term health of my DCT package. The Mk3 could have been a truly great car, but the DCT keeps it from that status. And apparently, 4 years haven't got the problems solved. I would like to keep this car for 250K miles, and with the exception of the DCT I think it can, but the DCT makes wonder about that goal. Too bad - I think the MK3 could've been a world-class car.
I had a 2012 Focus Titanium HB with the 17 inch wheels (i think) and the contipro contact tires. I drove in a lot of snow and it was very capable.For guys in tristate area; how is the focus in the snow and geting up and down hills? are Snow tires a must-have? I am seriously considering buying a 2013 titanium tomorrow.
