    I would never buy a ford, does anyone remember the Escort. That was a piece of crap. Stick to a reliable Japanese car. Honda, Toyota or even a Korean Hyundai.

      I would agree with you 5-10 years ago, but get with the times. The current Fords are not the Fords of old. They are outperforming Hondas and Toyotas and that is reflected in the sales numbers. Honda and Toyota still make some great cars, but Ford now rivals them and even exceeds them in some areas.

    I would like to point out that I just bought a 2012 Focus. I thought the same way, that Ford is cheap, tired and outdated with its trims. Then I began to do research on how all the popular magazine and websites were so excited about the upcoming Focus and how it would resemble the version Europe has been enjoying for the past three years.

    I did a lot of research on the Civic, Mazda3, Cruze and Hyundai Elantra. Stepped into the dealership, tested out a 2012 Focus and was absolutely floored. The interior is made of very good materials, never did it look or feel chintzy or cheap. And the handling is very quiet and smooth, able to punch at a moments notice.

    To say I have been proven wrong would be a major understatement. But then again Road and Track and Car and Driver are all reflecting the same thought process I have had . . . “How in the world is this a Ford?”
