This blog has been too long neglected!
When I was here last, I was trying to decide what kind of car was in my future. I was considering three different cars. I did research on them and after much consideration, a choice has been made!
The car I finally chose and now own is….tada (drumroll here, please!!)….a 2012 Ford Focus Hatchback! I have owned it for two weeks now and I am thoroughly enjoying my new wheels.
In order to get exactly what I wanted, the car was special ordered. It took about 5 weeks from the date it was ordered until I took delivery. Since I was traveling for two of those weeks, the time really went by quickly. The car I chose is dark gray with a light stone leather interior. It has a moon roof and the new Ford ‘myTouch’ computerized touch screen. That is where I can access the radio (including Sirius!), my iPhone through the car speakers, the climate control, and some navigation and other features. This car is just amazing! I had no idea you can get so much technology in a car. It’s like driving a computer….the engine and tires are almost secondary. Ok, well, not quite, but you know what I mean. Oh…here’s one more thing on my car…a back-up sensor. So if there is something out of my line of vision when I’m backing up, I hear a warning beep.
Overall, I am thrilled with my new car. I have absolutely no regrets about chosing American over Japanese. The car handles well, looks good, and is so fun to drive. What more could I ask for?
