Good review of the 2008 Ford Focus was looking to replace the wife***8217;s 1996 Saturn with the Focus, nice to see my initial impressions were not that far off Guess I will continue the hunt.

Way OT. I've long said if you want a Focus, buy a Mazda 3.

Ditto! The Mazda 3 is built off the new Focus platform from Europe.

Also what I was trying to say and its a waste of paper testing the Focus. They should have copied Top Gear when they had to test a family car and tested the Diahatsu Materia vs. Ascari A10.

I other new I saw on their website that the strange X6 will get a beast of an engine with a turbo V8. I guess that X3 could end up with a turbo straight 6 too then.

Also read that WV and Porsche will make a X3 size SUV but every time I see pictures they always have to have stupid sloping rear too look more sporty I guess. I want storage room damn it not a large heavy SUV with coupe like space in the trunk. I guess the next move will be a drop top X3 like that strange Audi concept from the LA car show.

Well there is always the Madza 5 if I want space :tsk:

I didn't like the Mazda3. Among other things, it was way too young for me. :rolleyes:
