2013 Ford Focus ST 4dr Hatchback w/EcoBoost (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
Really nice car, well built and fun to drive.
Shifter is smooth with excellent position and clutch has a good feel.
I kept the price down with a base model and sun roof the only extra.
This avoids the Ford My Touch complications and the base seats are fine.
Of course the Recaros have more sex appeal, but I needed to save a little.
I drive it in the Northeast so I added all season tires as it's a daily driver.
If you want a hatch with a manual tranny; this is the car.
Great power; nice brakes; corners well and looks good especially in red.
Happy to drive an American/International car.
Torgue vector control takes some getting used to.
Should have an all season tire option for those in colder areas but dealer make work with you on a switch I'm told.
