I drive 80 miles a day to work and back and at 13 mpg with my 2016 F350 Lariat I decided I needed a work vehicle. Main criteria was +30 mpg, preferably 35+. Had a Fusion previously that I loved and test drove a Focus when I bought that. Found this 2012 SEL at a small dealer who buys cars that were in minor fender benders and fixes them. My test drive showed no tranny issues so for the asking price, and only 67500 miles, I pulled the trigger. Got 37+ mpg on the 60 mile drive home, over 40 when keeping it under 65. Normal small rattles, but I think I got a winner, time will tell. Being an SEL, I am hoping the wiring harness will allow for easy addition of a backup camera and auto start. If not, these are easy aftermarket add ons. Also can't say I saw any white platinum metallic Focuses during my search. Love the color.
