      Sad to see an Escape meet such and end, but at least they caught the bastard who did it.

      Don't get me wrong, I'm not advising anyone buy a Focus if you considering a 3 series or other badge. It's just a prime example that a mainstream model doesn't have to be dull in non-sport versions.

      According to CR reliability reports, the non-turbo Darts are actually holding up pretty well. Can't say the same for the 1.4T though.

      If Honda and GM can scrub off 200+ pounds from their mainstream cars without extensive aluminum use, I see no reason why FCA shouldn't be able to do the same here.

      Wonder if we will see a gas...

      Here's the thing: I can buy a new $16k Ford Focus and get absolutely fantastic steering on a car that is truly a joy to drive. Why should you have to spend more $$ when other companies can make every...

      I saw one from Honda R&D last week that was partially camouflaged driving around Dublin. Not sure why it still had swirly bits on it, everyone knows what it looks like now. :confused:

      Yes pls.

      Also is a rusty hood a factory option on the Focus now? :laugh:

      There is NO place in the US or the world for that matter where every parking spot is completely level. All it takes is a couple degrees of slope for it to roll. Why people don't understand this is...

      Consumer Reports also reports acceleration times with no rollout and we all know what people think of them. :D

      If you're going to go at least 300,000 km before selling it, then sure. Otherwise it's a questionable value proposition even if it's a great truck to drive.

      Early reliability on these cars was pretty bad. Transmission and suspension problems galore. It got better post-WCM when Fiat came in though so build date is everything. Still, given the fact that...

      We've had those here for the last 25 years or so. ODOT has experimented with turning them on and off and honestly they don't make a big difference either way in the real world. Right now they are all...

      Both cars are 80% city driving.
