Granted the Focus came out here in 2002 it was actually out 4 years at that point if you count the European introduction in 1998. So that means they had a lot of the annoying bugs worked out for the most part.
I'm pretty sure the focus came out in the US in 2000..

Either way I guess the same idea goes with the Fiesta too, Europe has had it before the US. Only problem with saying this was that the euro/us fiestas and focuses have been pretty different.

^^ Yeah, I think that way,too. Some bikes and cars are just fine, and then a few have bugs to work out :)

All in all, the car has been great other than the minor adjustment to my driving habits (going to first and then reverse). If anything is going to start coming up, I'd imagine I'll start seeing it soon. I just hit 6,600 miles today eeeek..
