Just picked up my Race Red Focus three weeks ago.Love the colour,satellite radio and stereo. I bought the sedan over the hatch as it seemed to have less wind-noise and looked sportier to me. Car has been very good to this point,good pickup,great gas millage and still a head turner unlike Focus of previous years. This is my third Focus from wagon to mid-life crisis!
Still has some wind-noise and rattles as is befitting the Ford tradition.
The sync system is very cool and works well with a little training on my part. Seats are nicely shaped but lack a lumbar support for us old guys.
The auto transmission is still a work in process,when starting out it has trouble finding the right gear and is very much like a manual in that it jerks all over as it shifts up and down.
