I am not sure if I am the right person to share on this forum but here goes. I got my first Ford (2013 Focus) 3 months back and am delighted with my decision. As I am not a ‘car’ guy (and this was my first car), I got input from family and friends regarding what car to go for and the majority favoured a Japanese or German car. However, my wife fell in love with the Focus at the Hertz place and we decided to go for it. In the last 3 months we have had 3 long trips along with using it for daily commute and our experience has been amazing. Thank you Ford for making us so happy!
