I just about got creamed today trying to switch lanes as a truck five cars back switched lanes at the same time a lot quicker while my Focus hesitated for a couple seconds, sputtered, then took off like a rocket as the engine redlined. Then it stayed like that for a couple more seconds even after I took my foot off the pedal.

Freakin' scary!

Should bought the 5MT instead.
I'd say you should change maybe the fuel station. I change it from 87 to 91 and I see a difference in what concerns the "pull". Nice and puts a great smile on my face.

P.S. Here we had some +90 temp for 3 weeks already and I don't experience anything like you mention. One question though, how did you drove it the first 1000 miles (1600 km) ?
