Just about had enough.......

I've just about had enough of my focus. First the Gauges stop working, then the battery starts to go. Then the front sway bar decides its had enough, now the son-of-a-biotch doesn't want to start. I think I'm gonna get full coverage on it then torch it (just kidding) Oh well, I spotted this little gem while cruising Bangor today:

Might get my focus going then trade it in on this.

yeah, considering the fact that you can get a new one for about 12,000 with rebates.

They are giving 10,000 for mine, and it's 2006 (11,000 miles).

well, everyone is going to get a good laugh about this one........ I found out why my car wouldn't start. I was out of gas. I put a few gallons in and it fired right up. With the gas gauge not working I didn't realize it was dry. Disaster averted.
