MSRP is like $24k. Who is optioning a Focus up almost 50% above the base price?
Cars/trucks/SUVs/Vans all have their own personality.
Some vehicles may be more fun to drive to different drivers even if they lack the performance stats.
That being said ..$34k for a Focus ST that starts ate $24k?
I don't understand why people want to load up performance cars with lots of added cost and weight luxury features.
HC4L, BAM! You got the Scream! Cool, even better. With you on the heated seats, thought it was a gimmick until we got the Murano in '05 and the Jetta in '07, way to go in the cold.
Thanks for replying, keep us up to date.
For the Mustang fans, I wouldn't be so harsh as to judge mustang buyers, people are people, it's a decent car for the money, but numbers be danged, if you don't like a car, you don't like it.
Yeah.. heated seats are nice. I'll give you that one.

At $24k loaded it would make some sense. The base GT starts at $27k, so a $34k Focus is stupid.
Some day you guys who a defending the Focus over the Mustang for the same price will see how silly you sound.
I honestly hate the "this is the best performance value and buying anything else is stupid" argument.
A front wheel drive performance hatch can make more sense as a package - especially up north.
Let me ask you this- Which would you rather drive now; a 2003 Ford Mustang GT or a 2003 Ford Focus SVT?
How hard is it to understand, that when people need 4drs, they are looking for cars w 4drs. Not a faster 2dr for same money. Mustang can be a great bang for the bucks, but its a coupe. This dude needs 4drs, Let me repeat it again FOUR DOORS!!!
I would understand if you are talking about a sedan, but a coupe
Anyone who likes or buys a new 2013 Mustang is OK in my book, have at it.
What is silly is that, with over 290 million people in this country, some still can't understand that a neighbor will like or dislike things opposite of themselves. Shocker.
If we got out for lunch and I have the ham sandwich instead of the turkey, am I too dumb to hang with then? Seems only logical by the path layed out.
Looked at pics of '07 GS 350 AWD seeing as you have one. Big ugly jelly bean, Toyota's answer to Buick for the greying demographic, and you bought it the same time I got a silly Jetta. But I would almost bet that if I got to drive/keep your GS, I would push my Jetta under a rug. Better car by far, ain't even going to try to compare.
But really, for the money you paid, you could have done better. Ha!
Just kidding, your car rocks, I like it, and seriously, calling people dumb just for liking the ST, well, it looks bad against the rock thrower.

DIAF, I agree about the thirty four grand, don't know why they are asking (wondering if they are really getting any buyers at that price) for that much. As I stated, for about twenty nine grand, it's pretty much loaded here in NC.
And, the fact that you care enough about your fellow man as to talk him out of a forty dollar sandwhich, well, you and I are solid bro. Unless that was one kick butt sandwhich. Then you done did me wrong.
OK, now I'm hungry.
