Who in the hell told you it was that much to replace?! I just looked it up at AutoZone, and it's around $230 shipped to my door...

And while I'm glad you converted to a Focus, it seems a little unfair to dump a car because of the problems that have such a slight chance of going wrong... I'm sure 2% of Foci equipped with the self-parking system park themselves sideways up the wrong end of a telephone pole.
