Summary:

The best hatch by far!!!

Faults:

A few months after we got the car from the dealer the fuel meter broke, it was fixed under warranty.

Yesterday the rear left window fell off its rail which was very expensive to fix (more than a 100$).

In 4 years that's all the thing that went wrong. pretty impressive!!!

General Comments:

This car ride and handling is absolutely amazing,more power will be a blessing. I hope the focus 2 will at least match this one.
