Im sure its a decent car.. I personally wont buy another fwd car again if my goal is power.

Ford seems to be trying to get themselves back on track, just make sure it looks good as well as drives good

They are a fun car to drive. Shifts smooth and the engine comes alive when you get on it. For the $$$ you get good performance and technology. Which in some of the sportier cars there is a great lack of technology IMO.

The Focus ST is okay. I would prefer a sedan or the wagon body style.

Im holding out on a rear wheel drive escort. They need to make that happen. It would be the perfect time as well with all the toyobaru hype going on.

I also looked at the STI and Golf R but the interiors were boring.

This thread really belongs in the garage, on topic is suppose to be more about debates/politics etc. Anyways I think the focus st is a great sporty car for those who need to haul **** around.

Didn't really know where it went. I went to the dealer yesterday and they tried to stick me with a $575 monthly payment. Haha

Why is the monthly payment so high? It's only a $23k-$25k car.

This is the one big problem with the ST. It's an awesome car at 25k, but when you get in the 30K+ range, it is starting to compete with much better cars (like Ford's own mustang gt).

This is true, why would you buy a focus at 31k when you can get a 5.0 for about 5k more.

Si ftw, and we know that our civics will outlast that car in the long run.

For 5k more you get almost a fully loaded gt--base gt is only 31K.
