3 Wishes
 
You are hand washing your Focus one day. As you are rubbing your favorite wax on the hood, a genie pops out of the tailpipe. He says "I am the Ford Engineering Genie, and because you freed me - I will grant you 3 wishes. Unfortunately, as an Engineering Genie, my powers are limited. I can only re-engineer parts of your car. I can't even upgrade them. For example, I can re-tune your engine, but I can't add a turbo. But, anything that you want to go back and re-engineer I can do. I can even give you a square steering wheel if that was your hearts desire!"

Ok, me first:
  1. I wish you to redo MFT from scratch so it works smoothly and flawlessly
  2. I wish you you to make the transmission work smoothly at slow speeds
  3. I wish you to make the rain sensing wipers actually work properly

I'm in.

1. Fix the floor vent from blowing on my feet when on other settings (I love my sandals, but my feet are either freezing or melting depending on the setting).
2. Include a 6th gear on the manual transmission (3k rpm at 70mph?!?! really?!?!).
3. Make the headrests in my back seat fold instead of needing to be removed to flatten the seats when lowered (my '03 Yukon did this, why can't my '12 Focus?).

I really like the car otherwise. Those are my 3 biggest "issues" so far.

A couple small ones that aren't deal breakers, but man they sure would be nice to have:

4. Make the sunroof open a bit further (I don't like the dew dripping on my head..Or add a small drip tray back there!)
5. Auto Up/Down on all windows (Is this an option on any of the '12+ Foci?)
6. Add Bluetooth Audio to the main "source list" in the Sync System. (I know, just use voice commands)
7. Retain power window and sunroof functionality after key is off until driver door is opened (My '06 Audi does this, as did my '03 Yukon, and '00 S-10).

Can I rub the hood 3 times and get nine wishes?!?!

Auto up/down is available on all windows on titanium trim, and maybe others.

I would wish for:

- 1.6L Echoboost with a 6-speed manual
- paint that I can change color whenever I feel like it by rotating a knob
- 2" more tread width, sport suspension, and bodywork extensions that "Contour SVT" my little sedan to go along with the 1.6L Echoboost powertrain

1. Retune this engine to make 230 HP 210lbs without sacrificing more than 3mpg.
2. Sixth gear. ( i dont care if you cant make a turbo, make this 6th gear happen).
3. Make voice sync A.I.

1. Your 3
2. More space between the gas and brake pedals
3. Make the steering wheel tilt down further
