Go for the Ford Focus, LOL, it's got that Advance-Trac Traction system so if you want to drop the hammer you can, and it goes. LOL, not so funny if you havn't seen the commercial.

Consider this a response to both of your recent posts.

1. I really hate to be the one to defend imorts (especially Japanese) but to say they are "cheap plastic toys" is simply dumb. If you had as many cars go through your hands on a daily basis as I do you would realize just how wrong you are.

2. There are many "real cars" with less than a five liter engine. For example many people would agree that a Porsche 959 is a real car. Oops, sub 5L.

3. When you learn to spell Chevy (Chevie, come on!) you may gain some credibility. If this response makes you pissed off remember it's better to be pissed off than pissed on.

Well, I guess a 1966 Shelby GT-350S isn't worth owning. (400 Horsepower, 289 Ci engine.)

5l? not even 75% of domestic cars are 5liters anymore, not to speak of Imports with their generally smaller engine. Even the Japanese Godzilla, the gtr onli has 2.6l displacement.

Simple - Focus SVT

Hondas suck, and Mazdas are overpriced. I agree, though, that the SRT-4 is the way to go, if you just want performance. However, if you're looking for a family car, the Focus will suit your needs better. The ride is more comfortable, it's safer, and just looks more unique. Who wants to drive a Neon?
