I bought the SE with the Manual Transmission and the Sport package - and I'm sure glad I did! I have SYNC with none of the MyTouch issues. I have a great transmission with none of the Automatic issues. This car is fantastic!
I traded in a 2002 Subaru WRX, so I like power and handling. The 2012 Ford Focus hasn't let me down - it seems much more nimble than my WRX was. The power isn't as great, but I'm sure a few mods will help that department.
I considered a Titanium, but decided it wasn't worth it for all the extra hassle. I can install a better sound system than the Sony and really didn't want any of the other challenges.
I'm glad I went with the SE!
Smooth quiet ride
Good power response at higher RPM
GREAT Manual gearbox
Ice Cold A/C
So many media choices!
None - Ford did a wonderful job the first time - if you buy the right car!
