    It is unacceptable that the Focus doesn't have ABS as standard equipment. If they wanted a price leader, simply make ABS optional on entry-level S models but standard on all the others. I was recently at a Ford dealer looking at Fusions and saw several Focus Coupes WITHOUT ABS...this is 2008, right?

    The SX4 Sport is the sedan version of the SX4 Crossover and shares most of the same virtues and has a few tricks of its own. It looks very sporty and weighs less than the 5-door/wagon and is FWD only. The Crossover is supposed to be offered in FWD for '09 in addition to the current AWD.

    When only comparing price and mileage this is deceptive. Why not list all information such as warrenty, roadside assistance, etc as I'd like my college student protected against after purchase expenses even after they graduate. The Hyundai Elantra has great mileage, great standard equipment, 10 yr/100,000 mile drive train warrenty, 5yr/60,000 bumper to bumper and 5 yr/unlimited miles roadside assistance. What does the Ford, Honda, Pontiac have? Ford - 3yr/36,000 Bumper to bumper, 5 yr/60,000 drivetrain/roadside assist. Honda - Same as Ford with no roadside assistance. Pontiac - same bumper to bumper but 5yr/100,000 drivetrain and roadside assistance. Base prices - Elantra - $14k, Focus - $15k, Fit - $14k, Vibe - $15k. You decide which is best buy.
