I'm on my 3rd Focus and love it, but am only 5 years away from retiring and going to a one car family. The wife doesn't like manual trannys and I hate autotragics so I am seriously considering as my next car a VW CC R-line with the DSG tranny. Nothing written in stone, so time will tell.

2002 Focus se, dropped a valve seat and pulled the engine. My first car and still have it but working on a V8 install.

1998 Mazda 626 2.0 (had it been the V6 I would have kept it) bought for $150 sold for 2k and bought the next car

1990 Mazda 626 GT... loving it so far. Paint is ugly on the roof but it sure has torque. dynoed at 12 PSI with 176whp 241wtq stock turbo and 2.25" straight pipe exhaust. upgrading eventually.


Hmm so mostly imports for me as well.

If you go that route, you will absolutely want paddle shifters on the wheel, and currently the CC R-Line doesn't offer this. If you buy used, you can get one, but for some reason VW decided to stop offering it on anything but the top-line 3.6 model. [screwy]

2003 Kia Optima SEV6

2008 Mazdaspeed 3, ended up almost fully bolted (all except the turbo mani) too many things to list really, but end result was Dyno at 280whp 294wtq on a Mustang Dyno, AccessPort tune.

2012 Focus SEL, traded in the MS3 for it... wanted out of the modding game, the bug bit me hard, and wanted in on MPGs cause the Mazda got ~25hwy. So far... haven't seen over 31mpg for a whole tank unfortunately, but that's a 9-10 mile increase over the Mazda. Plus I don't have to put in premium, and haven't spent over $40 on a tank yet.

2001 Focus was my first brand new car still have it now its turboed and has over 15K in mods. My second car was a 1995 lt1 corvette which now has a 700whp 396 lt based motor. My new addition is the 2012. My family while I was young had nothing but Fords. Now were all older and everyone has gone their seperate ways slightly.

My Mom has a 2012 Passat R.
My sister has a Mazda 5 with a Speed3 swap since she ran the old motor out of oil lol.
My Dad a 2011 Raptor 6.2 and a 2010 Genesis Sedan and 2010 SHO.
My Brother Kia Forte Koup

Alot has changed in foreign cars but Im a die hard Ford fan since my 2001 has now 190,000 of which 154,000 was with stock internal motor with every bolt on and tuned and stock tranny. I blew the motor by a miss shift into 3rd at 120 at Sebring which put the motor to rest.

Ford have been very good to me.

Im all Domestic

My signature sums it up.

My first car was the '92 Grand Prix that my parents bought new and I took over when I got my license. This car will never be sold.

My second car is the Focus, picked up about 6 weeks ago. Given the way my parents and I keep cars, it'll be here for a long time yet.

New Cars:
1985 Ford Escort. manual tranny (dog caar. slow, underpowered...)
then
1989 Mercury Tracer manual tranny (nice car, decent except for crummy brakes)
then
1996 Mercury Mistique (the 'mistake car" with an auto tranny, otherwise a nice car)
then:
The best car i ever owned:
1999 Ford Contour SVT green #0153 made. manual tranny

Then a LONG GAP as i waited for Ford to make another sort of car like the Contour SVT....
And finally bought the 2012 Focus,as it seemed good enough to replace the SVT.
(I am willing to have less power for better mpgs...)
