It is a blast to drive, a big difference from my 01 Focus. Interior looks a lot nicer and I grew to love the red exterior color I have. Bought the car with issues (bad previous driver), there are quite a # of TSBs on the car but nothing major.
Handling = SUPERB!
A supercharger would have been nice from factory, a turbo would be even better but supercharger would suffice. And a way to fully kill the traction control from factory.
