So I have my cousin’s Focus for the day to change the fuel filter (which aside from dripping gas and one pesky clip, was easy to change.) I was driving it around to make sure everything was right, and it’s shockingly nice to drive.

This but dark red and a touch beat up

The little 2.0L motor has plenty of pep even hooked to an automatic and sounds nice IMO. The steering is great and the car handles really well. I knew this had a reputation to be pretty fun, but I didn’t expect it to be as fun as it was.


On the other hand, the interior is very funky. A little too funky for my tastes. Steering wheel is thick and feels good in your hand though. Plus Ford GT blinker stalks.

So yeah, color me impressed.
