What unlisted extras came with your used Focus?

When selling a used Focus, a seller sometimes doesn't realize that it has certain premium features. I've seen used Focuses for sale with the following unlisted features:
  • a 2.3L engine
  • alloy rims
  • 16-inch wheels
  • a 6CD changer
  • side airbags
  • traction control
What unadvertised goodies came as a pleasant surprise (before or after you bought it) with your used Focus?

Right from a Ford dealer....

Horrible gas mileage for an economy/small car.
Two bent wheels.
Tires about 80% worn out in places.
Badly in need of an alignment.
Bottom of the car caked with yellow clay/mud.
Blower switch not working (intermittent) on 3rd and 4th speed.
Broken weld in driver seat-back.
One ripped wiper blade.
etc....

Most of this was unknown at the time of purchase. The MPG was/is the worst. This what you're talking about?
