My titanium is in the shop getting new seals in the transmission. I was given a Focus se as a loner from enterprise rent a car. My wife picked up the rental yesterday. I got in it this morning and got a low tire warning and a low washer fluid warning. After I got to work I noticed something almost dragging the ground under the front of the car. Looking under someone had cut out the center of bottom engine. Cover I guess to change the oil and part of what was left was hanging down. Good work enterprise
An se is a whole different car than a titanium. I miss all my gadgets and buttons and I thought all newer cars had cruise control but I guess not. The engine is a lot lowder in the se and I miss my select shift I feel like I traded in a Harley for a moped.
One thing I did like is when I opened the hatchback it actually had a deep storage compartment. I know the titanium has a full size spare tire but I didn't know I was giveing up that much space it makes me want to replace it with a donut spare so I can have more storage space.
One thing you have to remember is that almost all rental cars are base model as far as options go. I have an SE and I love it. It has enough options to be an SEL though.
As a side note, it is also in the shop this week, hopefully for the last time if I can get them to actually change the seals and replace the clutch. It has been an ongoing battle for over a year now.
The Enterprise at the Ford dealership I went to does not rent Fords to their customers, except in the case that you have a Ford truck in for service and you absolutely have to have a truck rented, then they get one from Ford and rent it to you.
Right now I have a Dodge Avenger, and since it's base model, I miss my Focus tremendously and I hope they get it fixed soon.
I complained to enterprise about not haveing cruise control so they replaced with Toyota Carolla lx. It's a nice car but it doesn't have the smooth ride the Focus has. I always said the Focus had a big car ride and didn't feel like a small car. The Toyota feels more like a small car and not as fast. People who have been driving Toyota's for years don't know what they are missing out on.
That IS funny that some moron cut a hole in the underbody cover. I guess now it's "Ghetto-fied" !!
