    It is fucking sad how Ford can easily save them selves by dipping into the european product line, but they are too thickheaded to make it happen.

    It's because the average American consumers are stupid. They rather buy a Focus with a nice MP3 player than one with a nice AWD system. Ford just giving what they want.

    funny, companies like Honda, Subaru and Mitsubishi realized a few years ago that there were a lot of americans that wanted relatively light-on-their-feet cars with reasonably powerful small engines, and they've sold shitloads of them. Ford could steal a HUGE chunk of this market if they brought over some of their best European product.

    the problem is that ford USA can't mimic a single car that ford europe has.

    besides, with the current value of the dollar, and manufacturing costs, an RS focus would probably be somewhere in the $30's...

    its the same thing with the Japanese CTR. :hs:

    yet again we miss out on a sick ford product. Funny how you say 'focus' to people, they assume its a slow faggot car, but that RS is nasty on the course.
