Half an amp? Wow.
Well that would explain it. My ipad needs at least 2 and my phone seems happiest with a minimum of 1...

Though, heres alittle something that might surprise you... Ive been looking on and off for a 1995 Taurus SHO 5speed in midnight blue. Ive only ever seen two on sale (well, technically three, though it was the same vin at the same dealer on two sales) and BOTH were going for $5000+ irregardless of mileage. Thats a 19yr old car that can still pull in $5000+....

|Just Tom||It was joke people!! With very few exceptions cars are not investments, collectible, antique and exotics which tend to appreciate in value over time would be those exceptions. The Focus is none of those, so I got about what I expected. I bought the car at dealer invoice and had about $2,500 in rebates thrown at me on top of it, so I definitely bought the car right which saved me a ton of cash.|

Back to features, is the USB port in the armrest/console supposed to charge also?
At first i thought it wouldn't charge my iPad because there was too much draw, but it doesn't charge my iphone, or the boy's ipod, either....
Is this just a data input, or do I have something amiss?

Didn't have the heart to tell him my depreciation right away on the used Focus.
When I looked it up last spring during a similar discussion it sat at $1k for six years ownership.
Prob. down another by this Spring as it starts to age, at this point it's def. a "keeper" so it hardly matters.

|Tigeo||Paid 19K for my loaded 2013 SE (sticker was 24K) and its probably worth 11-12K in a private sale right now with 50K miles on it. 7-8K in depreciation in ~2 years..not bad really for a small American car. The folks that get creamed on depreciation didn't negotiate a low enough sales price or our trading in cars all the time. My cars are just not a big factor in my networth as they shouldn't be. They are a depreciating asset. Buying used is always the best deal...and if the new vs. used price isn't much..you haven't negotiated a low enough used price.|
