I purchased my 2012 Focus HB SE, 6speed Auto, on 4/22/11. I absolutely love this car.
The fun factor is outrageous and addicting. Everything about this car is amazing.
The car build is solid, no vibrations or squeeks. the doors close solid and the front and rear seats are very supportive and hold you in.
My main reason too purchase this vehicle was for its good fuel mileage, so far i'm getting 39 mpg, in mixed driving
My favorite feature is the steering wheel. The design reminds me of an F1 racing. It is small, compact, and feels great in your hands.
I also like the Sync system, It's easy to use and enjoyable, not to have my cell phone to my ear while driving.
The only area I see improvement, is a longer center arm rest. The arm rest is too short, only able to rest my right elbow, while my forearm is not supported at all.
