2012 Ford Focus SEL 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6AM)


I spent 40 years in the auto business beginning as a salesman, used car manager, import factory rep to factory exec and then ended up a CPDJ dealer.
I've driven them all and when it was time to retire and buy what I really wanted, I bought the Focus SE with the 203A, sport package and auto/manual.
I look for reasons to drive it so what I save in gas (32 around town/38 on the highway) I burn up having fun.
Yeah, the MySync or whatever it's called is tedious for an old non-geek but I'm used to it.
The performance is kickin' and the handling awesome.

You can keep your Japanese 'cachet' cars.
I'll drive the wheels off this jewel and love every minute of it!

Best Features

Handling, acceleration, comfort, fit and finish and style!

Worst Features

Lose the 22 ways to adjust the radio and make the navi easier to use. I had to sit in the car in my garage with my laptop for a week just to figure out how to do what this computer on wheels will do!
