Skip the Automatic and buy the Manual!
By kevinmillerphx on


2012 Ford Focus SE 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


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!

Best Features

Smooth quiet ride Nimble handling Good power response at higher RPM GREAT Manual gearbox Ice Cold A/C SYNC So many media choices!

Worst Features

None - Ford did a wonderful job the first time - if you buy the right car!
