    Does it happen to be Ruby Red with the 17" wheels, fog lights, disc brakes, and leather interior?

    One mod I *highly* suggest for those Mk3 manual Focuses: get the electric Focus roll restrictor. That allows much better clutch pedal feel, and it puts the power down better, without the engine rocking/hitting the firewall (had it happen on mine). Kind of off the tracks.

    My wife has a '13 Fiesta Titanium. If there ever were a spiritual successor to the Escort; that is it. Same dimensions as a Tempo, 130HP 1.6L engine. Unbelievably fun car, great gas mileage (high 40s to mid 50s), and reasonable interior space. I almost bought the ST version instead of a Focus, but wanted a bit more room for hauling stuff (half-stack guitar amps, bikes, other stuff).

    I still miss my Escort for its simplicity and honest reliability. It was not that comfortable compared to modern stuff, though.
