2014 Ford Focus Titanium 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6AM)
I've owned mostly imports for the past 10 yrs and I just decided to move on from my 07 Mazda3 with 160k on it, so I took advantage of Black Friday and got a very good deal on a Focus Hatch Titanium.
It came down to the Mazda3, Cruze Diesel, Golf Diesel or Focus. I was seeking MPGs, sportiness and comfort. All were great cars w/ their own pros/cons, something about the Focus grabbed me. Ford has caught my eye w/ their recent designs and I'd had a great experience w/ a Sport Trac so I decided to give Ford a try.
So far the car has been awesome (~2k miles). I drive a ton for work, so I'll keep you posted on progress. If you're considering the Focus, I highly recommend it.
Nimble handling, very comfortable seats, high quality upholstery (nicest fake leather out there!), technology - MyFord Touch has been awesome so far, SYNC is awesome... you can do everything by voice and its pretty capable.
Fuel economy is legit. I'm getting 37-37 MPG on hwy and about 27-29 in city. Its as advertised.
Nothing yet. I will re-post in the next 6 months or so when I will have about 10-15k on it.
