Hey All,

Just picked up a 2012 Focus SEL a couple weeks ago..Now I have been a GM guy all my life until now.

While tthe Focus is a cute little car, there are a couple of annoying issues that I never thought to check when I test drove the car. Most I can live with but the one thing that is really ticking me off is no digital display of speed. All my previous GM vehicles were capable of this(Terrain, G5)

The car is fully loaded with the MySync entertainment with the 8" screen etc. On the dash there is some vehicle info being displayed. Totally useless info for day to day driving This info is trip odometers, average fuel, distance to empty etc. These are nice to have, but there appears to be NO way to have the speed displayed in this window. The system is surely capable as when the cruise control is set, it shows the speed.

Hoping that a Ford engineer will see this and get a firmware update for the display.

Actually thinking of selling over this one issue.
