    Why are so many people selling?

    Why are so many people selling their cars? There are no replacements for this car the other manufacturers that will continue to build hot hatch like cars are going to be much more Focus ST like. Not to mention the price nowhere even close when you think about the incentives off the sticker price. I hear my wife or girlfriend doesn't like it, or I need to save some money man lay off the Starbucks. If you get rid of the things that you like because of other people's opinions you are probably going to have a grudge against that person including your significant other and that never ends well.

    It just makes me sad to see so many people sell what is probably the best performance bargain car ever made. Just a thought so many cars popping up for sell lately.

    VERY SHORT attention spans in this land, way too easily bored privileged jadedness, compulsion to have the most popular, "next best thing" coming down the pike, who knows.
    I regularly took 2 sons to hockey games and practices in a 4th gen Z28 (and one was a goalie), so the "need more room" thing does not compute for me, and most with families have an SUV/minivan as a second vehicle in their stable anyway, if they really did need the room.

    I plan on keeping mine until it either gets totaled beyond repair, rusts out to the point of not being drivable, or I die.

    Some people keep their phones until they are obsolete and others get the new model each year.

    Not surprised at the amount of people selling but I am kinda surprised how low some of the selling prices are now, wish I waited a year.

    Same here.
    2017 Magnetic, everything but the Recaros. MP 215, mountune shift kit and shift knob, Husky floor liners. That's all I'm doing, I swear!.. OK, I lied. Also added an intake hose and symposer delete. But that really is all, I swear this time! Okay. just one other thing: A mountune RMM. Now I really am done, I promise!

    I'll sell my Cicasso, because i'm really fed-up of this car….Yesterday, the same engine warning light, began to light up like crazy...The reason why?..a little rubber pipe broke in two parts, spilling down the gearbox actuator oil on the floor….
    This is only one of a series of problems happened to this car….

    The car I'll never sell, is my FiST….!

    Eh, for me, it’s a 3rd car and not something I drive for commute anymore. I have a paid for car that I drive the kids around in and the wife has a new car.

    That being said, we have been traveling in the FiST to balance the mileage off of her daily commute. She’s at 90 miles a day.

    If I don’t sell the ST in the next month or so, I will keep it and teach her to drive a manual so she can alternate or whatever.

    I really like this car and I genuinely enjoy driving it, but it's a car I "settled" for.

    It's not necessarily the car I wanted, but it was the best compromise for what I wanted/needed.

    I bought my FIST as a "cheap" commuter car and did not expect to like as much as I do. I bought a white one as it would not show the dirt and it would get parked in the street. Well turns out I like more than even my 2018 Mustang GT, so lately the GT is getting the street and I'm not driving the FIST as a DD- rotating it with the GT now. Why because the FIST is quicker and easier to drive, better visibility, easier to park, more room inside and more comfortable- and I get nearly 40 MPG with it. If I had to get rid of a car it would be my GT, not he FIST and get a jeep or a truck. I have had no problems with the FIST at all after 8K miles. My GT is noisy with piston slap but from what I read it's normal. So FIST I'm keeping a long time. It's not replaceable as Ford is not making any more for the states so it will be a rare breed over here.

I will have the FiST forever.....Never gonna sell it! I've sad it numerous times when I see a part out and going to sell it......it is sad!
