Some of us may prefer to change oil when the monitor is at, say 30%, which can't be done in a Focus.

I'm on the fence as to buying a Focus or Cruze and in this case, what Chevy makes absolutely simple, Ford makes impossible.
Oil life percent is not a feature offered on the Focus, but if you decide to change the oil prior to the reminder coming on, there are steps listed in the Owner's Guide for resetting the system.

Any other questions that I can answer to help with your decision? I want to see you in a Focus.
