I have focus

On more than one occasion, I have been accused of lacking focus. Well no more. I now have focus and it's parked in my driveway.

Yesterday morning we went car shopping. My car was down to it's last 3 payments and as much as I liked the car it was time to trade it in. The inside door handle on the drivers side had broken and it was getting to be a real pain in the butt. I had to roll the window down, reach out and open the door from the outside, roll the window back up and then I could shut the car off (power windows).

The funny thing is I have never liked the Ford Focus. I didn't like the looks of them and once when I had one as a rental while my car was getting repairs I hated driving it. I don't know what it is about the new body style on them but I just like it. Now I just need to figure out what all those little buttons inside of it do. I think I"ll go for a drive today.

Very posh Ann...hope you enjoy your drive and find out what all the little buttons are for!!

Since you just got it from a dealer, it may be already taken care of, but you might do well to check if your new car is on this recall list.

P.S.: Arlynda would really like to get a Focus.

Have seen a few of these on the roads. Not a fan of Fords, but it is indeed a cute car. Hope you enjoy the ride.... If it has a sunroof, open it and drive with wild abandon! Woo Hoo.

Oh, so NICE! John and I are planning (with fear and trepidation) of visiting some dealers today. I am looking for a used, good mileage, good looking, good quality car for a good price :)

Dealers scare me but i have to start somewhere.

Those little flowers in the foreground, are they grape hyacinths? We have them growing here.
Maybe I should FOCUS on the real point of this post. That's a nice car. I'm a little bit envious. I can't afFORD one.
This is a terrible comment. I do apologise!

Cute car! I never liked the old Focus style but we have a neighbor that has a silver one like yours and every time I drive by it I notice how cute it is! I love the color of yours! Have fun driving it around and hope Duke gets to go too!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Pretty little car, Ann. I too didn't know that the new Focus's were so pretty... I have never cared for them--but I like yours ALOT... Congrats.
Hugs,
Betsy

Nothing beats the smell of a new car! This looks like a very fun car Ann. Enjoy your ride!

A friend of mine bought a Focus about two years ago and she loves it! Great on gas! I've always like Ford and Toyota. I've had two Ford Explorers, one Ford Expedition and now My Navigator and we have a Toyota Scion. I can't get a new car because these are paid for. :( I have to wait awhile. So, I'll enjoy your new car! Enjoy your Sunday drive and share it with us. :) I bet Duke likes the new ride! Nice color and it looks sporty!

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Now that's the kind of focus I'd like to have. Nice car, congrats!

Erika said...

focus in the front of the house is always a good thing. Especially when it has unexplainable buttons that demand your focus.

Chatty Crone said...

Getting a new car - your are so lucky - I'm thrilled for you! And it is so pretty. I love it. sandie

When my husband got a new car a couple years ago, we test drove a couple of Focuses. The inside layout was really confusing. Those were 2008/2009 models, though, so hopefully things have improved since then. Enjoy your new car!

Ann said...

Looks good to me - enjoy it!

Sheryl Hastings said...

Congratulaions on the new wheels. Love the color. I heard that the new Fords come with all kinds of cool features. I'm sure you will figure them all out soon.

Sandee said...

Getting a new car is fun indeed. It's been 2002 since I had a new car. It was grand fun. Enjoy your new wheels and the not having to roll down the window to open the door.

Have a fabulous day. My best to Duke. :)

Lin said...

Oh WOW! Happy New CAR!! That is always so darn exciting isn't it? And that smell!! Nothing like it.

Enjoy!

Reeni said...

Congrats on your new car! Enjoy!

I have a Focus. I'm not sure why, but I really liked them so last time I went car shopping I knew I wanted to get one. It's a nice car, but I'm ready for a change in a few years.

Marg said...

It does look a lot better now. I never liked the Ford Focus either. That one you got is nice looking. Well done. Have fun.

Helen said...

Congratulations! It is fun driving a new car. Love the color too.
