Yes, no doubt about it, the suspension is decidedly firm but the body hugging Recaro seats do a good job of helping to smooth things out. I do in fact suffer from back problems (sciatica) but haven't found that the hard ride on the ST has caused me any discomfort.

Mmm, you have a point there Karen, it would look a bit odd but if you explained the situation to the dealer, I'm sure they'd try to help you - after all, they have an interest in selling you a car. You are under no obligation to buy!


I love the ST! It's probably a bit of a (late) mid-life crisis purchase and is certainly a firmer ride than the Focus Titanium X that it replaces. It goes like stink and is almost impossible to get unstuck in a corner and it's all the more enjoyable (and tractable) thanks to the no brainer Mountune option. Economy, even driven with some enthusiasm, averages about 37mpg which is better than I was expecting.


Good luck with your search.

I'd suggest popping down to your nearest dealer and have a couple of test drives via your house and try it out for size!

Woohoo, long live the 'Oldies'! Thanks for the comments.


My problem is that my brain won't accept the fact that I'm now a pensioner but my body keeps reminding me that I am!


I've taken my son's advice though and 'gone for it', he saying that if I don't indulge in this sort of car now - I possibly never will! That was all the encouragement I needed.


Do you guys know of another more relevant thread here?
