This is why American car makers are where they are. They've spent the last 30 years building the cheapest thing they can make, then, assuming the public is stupid, relying on dishonest marketing to sell to the ignorant masses.
lol what the?? newer Fords have been pretty solid, i was thinking about getting a focus as my dd.

if you wanna look at cheapest thing they can make, compare a toyota corolla and honda civic to the new focus, the civic and corolla are wayyyyyyy cheaper built. still reliable, but material quality is so low

Yep. Clever commercial; I thought it was cool plus with the pass they give the nod to M3 which of course they're not comparing besides price

Really? You analyzed that commercial.
Take it for what it is. It was a fun cool commercial.

Good job Ford

well done Ford
trying to win over the male crowd has been done and re-heated over and over...
it's getting old and boring...

Props to Ford for trying to reach out to women, and increasingly more women are getting interested into cars as much as the men.

This is very smart of Ford to not discriminate women and actually give them the chance to play among the guys ... (by being reasonable and smart shoppers)

Great commercial ! (the driving is a bit cheesy of course )

Though I've not ever driven or been in one, every review I've read/seen has been quite complimentary, and for a car priced below $30K (fully loaded) I don't see what's wrong with it. Indeed, for many people who value good handling, the Focus offers more than enough, and it wouldn't surprise me to find that the Focus could hold its own, if not best, against non-M versions of BMWs.

AnyOne else think the previous fords looked like crap but now the new ones look pretty hot cause they straight copied their front end (grill) from Aston Martin?

When I drive my car, eventually I see all these cars buzzing all around me like flies. I gas it and leave them all in the dust.

There is a good steep windy grade near here. I passed one of these Ford's full throttle just to make sure he heard the glorious sound coming out of my car. In your face!!

This ad portrays that Ford Focus ST is for chicks and men should not buy it.

Also, what is the point of female driver as it is common knowledge that women cannot drive?
