Thank you for all the replies. I have alot to think about. I just wasn't sure if the turbo on the 1.4 would cause it to wear out faster as compared to an engine without a turbo. I know the engine in the Focus is non turbo(160hp) but Ford plans to add a 2.0 Ecoboost in the Focus making 247hp but I hear its even possible that might get bumped up to 350hp. This shows me that the 2.0 may be pretty durable. I wonder what the HP on the 1.4 would be if it wasn't turbo?
I will have to do more comparison test between the two. I currently drive a 2001 Grand Am GT that I purchased in October of 2000 and it has been reliable for me. I have always owned GM vehicles. I was originally going to go with a new Cruze but after seeing a few 2012 Focus vehicles on the road it kind of made me say to myself, hey maybe I should check out the new Focus.
The LS is not a turbo. I am real pleased with mine and I have always had imports ( except for 1 Ford Ranger POS )!
