Hey everyone,

It broke my heart to do it, but I traded the Taurus in. It was a beautiful car, and it was damn near bulletproof. The only thing I could do was go and buy another Ford!

I just took delivery of a 2009 Ford Focus SES. 5spd manual, sunroof, leather steering wheel, SYNC. It was marked down to 14,000 from 19,500 (approx) so I just decided to do it. This is my first ever new car. I absolutely love it.

Pics soon!

Nice, sounds like you got a great deal!

Glad you stuck with the big 2.5! ;) :ford:

Enjoy the new ride! B) You do realize you're obligated to post pics, right? :D

The thing that I like about that car is that it looks good in so many different colors.
My son's girlfriend has an 09 in bright red. :)

The sangria red or whatever is pretty much just Toreador red... The loaner car I had was that colour and it almost exactly matched my bull...

There is only a 2 liter in the focus. Not the 2.5 liter in the Escape.
And MWT.... I am not trying to flame you but Toyota is the second most over rated car company in existence.

He's making a joke at the American Auto Makers being known as "The Big 3" except Chrysler is sinking faster than the Titanic.

Hey, the "2.5" means "2.0 with 5spd." I call it the 2.fast.

Here are the pics:

Delivery prep in the service bay


In my parking lot







The reason I bought this: 2.04cyl with 5spd...one of the best engines Ford ever made.


The interior...I love the black on silver




The second reason I bought this: The sunroof!!!


I love these hexhead wheels




My understanding is that Ford has a patent on these headlamp lenses...I don't know why but they light up the pavement at night like none other.


I think Ford pretty much has a customer for life.



Thanks TCCA! It was fun. I'll still be around, you guys are too awesome! Please don't ban me.

You traded it in for a stick-shift. No banning necessary.

It's a pretty nice looking car. Good move by Ford to remove that stupid non-functional vent on the fender.

If I had enough money, I'd be doing the same! Focus is the cheapest brand new car on the market that I like.

How is the 5 speed / 2.0 combo compared to the taurus?

now you gotta drop it 3 inches, get a huge spoiler, fart-bomb exhaust and spray paint the rims, then you'll no longer be a ford guy but a ricer.


dont do this plz

What is that filter looking thing at the top of the engine bay?

Also, don't show those rear pictures of the dealer sticker... Lots of members on here will flame you out for that!
