For many years I have been a staunch supporter of import cars. My last car was a Honda Civic and was not the automotive icon everyone depicts it to be. Ford still has some ground cover on the little things, but for the real world, you can't go wrong with the Focus. It rides better, has more power, better visibility, and better factory support than any import out there! Especially Honda.
All of the standard features that other makes charge too much for. Ride, comfort, visibility, and handling.
Maybe some better looking materials for the interior trim.
