I went from a Fusion to the Focus to save money and I don't feel like I down sized.
I'm a tall guy and I always get crap about driving small cars but I put my money into my son and not into the tank or payments.
I got the 5-speed manual with regular sync system and I just love it.
Not much room behind me but I don't have to ride back there so I don't worry about it.
I have lots of room up front.
Sync - Linked up with my Droid Bionic and I listen to Pandora and make phone calls with it.
I love this...it was one thing I had to have on the car.
A 6-speed manual.
I love manual transmissions but I would like one more gear to get better mileage.
