Just grin and bear it they day! Next time I'll buy a Toyota and grin at the FF at stop lights.
You're absolutely Right !!!
Ford knew about the problem with the Focus since 2000 and ignored it,
that was their idea of a cheap fix.
I owned a 1991 Escort B-4 buying the Focus and sold it with 147,000 miles
it never had 4 wheel alignment and never ever cupped the rear tires.
