Focus for use as highway transport
I'm looking for a new car atm and it would seem I'm getting some BS from various dealers (oh surprise!) so now I don't know what to believe.
What I'm after is a car that will be predominantly used (90%) for travel on Aussie freeways (110km/hr). I also want to keep the car as a long term purchase.
A focus would do fine sizewise, and I was all set on it until I started hearing suggestions that using a 4cyl car in that way would just thrash it to death and I'd be better off with a 6cyl. But the ford guy says it's designed for the European motorways and would be fine.
I guess the logic makes sense - more power at lower revs = less strain on the engine. But is it true! Any opinions?
