Re: Kibbitzing like a fiend

I was at the Saturn dealership yesterday

Have you checked out the Ford Focus yet? Specifically the 2007 Ford Focus ZX3 SE 2dr Hatchback? (The hatchback is soo much cuter than the other models, IMO.) Comparing the specs of that and the Ion on Edmunds.com, the Focus looks like the winner.

Better gas mileage, less overall emissions, and more features. The Ford will cost more to get an automatic transmission, but will get you:
  • variable intermittent wipers (trust me--this matters)
  • Remote power door locks
  • Power outside mirrors
  • Power windows
  • Standard AC
  • Driver seat-height adjustment
Assuming you want a new car. That's still up in the air, as far as I know.

Re: Kibbitzing like a fiend

My mum has a Focus automatic, four years old. It's ... okay. Well equipped, works fine, nice driving position, yadda yadda, CD and aircon and stuff... nothing actually WRONG with it, but I had to drive it for a while last summer and it BORED me. It was a YAWN car. Especially compared to my Renault 5!

A Focus estate with a proper roofrack, now. That might appeal. But that's my personal preference - I haul a lot of stuff around from time to time.
