It was a wonderful compliment and reminded me of my initial training on back roads with my dad and his near religious care of a clutch. Clutch abuse was not tolerated and "riding" the clutch was a cardinal sin. I must be doing something right.
Thank you for informing of us you excellent driving ability. I merely informed him of what to be aware of when looking over a 5 speed equipped Focus. That is a are of concern, and numerous readings and articles of FF allude to this. Did you have anything you want to add to tell him what to look for? Because that was his question, and I was trying to be helpful to the OP.
