Taking advantage of good incentives
(including the Costco Program), my wife
and I purchased a new 2003 Focus Wagon.
She had test driven an Ion, a Civic,
and an Echo (and of course, her old
Escort), and loved the ride, power,
handling, lines, comforts, space and
overall style of her new car. I've
driven it a bit, and I confess I like
it better than my '98 Saturn SL2.
She likes the power best. Of course,
she's going from 88 hp to 140 hp.
The one annoyance we have is the rear
seat. The back rests are 60/40 spilt
fold-downs, but the entire rear seat is
one piece, making the split moot.
