Information for those planning to buy a focus

Reply: To Lscman, Perhaps I might agree with your comment on no i pod jacks in Fords. But my Focus does not, I repeat, does NOT, even have a USB port. I am posting this for anyone considering buying a Focus despite the transmission issues, or considering a manual Focus(which by the way, should have been a six speed). Check before you buy. I ordered mine from the factory, so I didn't realize that it had no USB port until I had taken it home. It never even occurred to me to look. By the way, your examples and analogies illustrating the difficulties of automated manuals were excellent and well told. Driving one of those transmissions does feel like grandma is on the brakes and you are on the accelerator. Thank the Lord I have a manual.
