I feel pretty strongly that it does have to do with the airgap in the pinch weld at the strut tower and firewall junction, but I don't have the time to do any research on validating that hypothesis.

And Ford, give me assistance to get out of the car? Surely, you jest. I've simply had enough. Luckily I have a good personal relationship with my VW dealer, so they were able to give some extra massaging of the numbers in getting me out of the Ford and into the GTI. I still took a heavy hit on the trade, but I'm at least above KBB.
A GTI is a whole different animal compared to a non-ST Focus.
