Not at all, my arms were pushed up into an uncomfortable position.

Fine for aggressive driving, not OK for the rest of the time.

Don't get me wrong, it's a helluva fun car but not something I'd want to live with on a daily basis.

I would've loved it at 25, but not at 40.

I see.  So a newer mustang would be a better DD?  I want something fun, quick, comfortable on long trips and can mod it a little.  I don't go to the track, but love to feel the powa from time to time, plus love the sound of a V8 stang.

WRX wins this contest.   I drove a 2015 and it was a blast.  Just too spartan for me.   If I had $30k for toy,  I'd get a LS3 Corvette.   Focus screams high school car.   WRX isn't far behind,  but at least it has a sweet AWD system.

Well, this thread certainly took a turn. Lol

SR, figure out how I can get one of those for the cost of a focus and I'm there!

Timeshare?

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!

My wife had a '13 ST3 with a sunroof.  I'm 6'3" and 235#'s and had no issues with the seats.  If you get a sunroof car you can't be taller than 6'3" as my hair rubbed the head liner, but I guess you could recline the back some more.  She LOVED the car, but decided to stay home with the kids and she sold it with 8000 miles.  Great car, never had a problem with it.  Glad my PP '14 handles tighter like the ST than my '11 non-pp otherwise, I may miss the car more.
