Basically everything that you can get on the Focus, this car has. I got it for my lovely wife, Rebecca. She will be siging on to the jet with a name here shortly. Here are 2 pics of the happy new owner....





She is just as happy as pie. Let her know what you think of it! She is not sure about the color!!

Looks good. How does the Sony stuff sound but more importantly, how long till you swap it all out?

If this was my car it would already be up for sale!!
But, this is her car and she really likes it. I may swap out the sub, but that might be all. Not sure yet.

yeah, we found it on thurs. nite and left saturday morning to go get it. It was a 4.5 hr. drive to Memphis, but it was worth it. She is very happy!!


When the "BOSS" is happy, I am happy!!

CoRngratulations!


The color is beautiful; it should grow on her over the next few weeks.


The OD Off button on the shiftknob can be used without ill effect as a 3-4 and 4-3 shifter if she wants to have a little more fum with the automatic.

She'll not be hurting the trans; it's electronically controlled and will not allow any inappropriate or potentially damaging shifts. I assume it has a tach? Upshift into 4th (OD) at around 3000 RPM in 3rd (Drive) and downshift at around 2000 RPM from 4th (OD).

That is if she's a driver...


When OD is left on as it is every time the car is turned on, the trans will shift into OD too many times (in a programmed attempt at improving Ford's CAFE) and sometimes unecessarily when driving around town. Try it!
