I love the sound of my car. After spending the last week touring the NE USA in my wifes Journey I think I am going to try to get her into a Focus Sedan next summer, what we save in fuel (and embarrassment) should cover the few k we will probably be upside down on. I have never had a vehicle with crappier brakes than those on the Journey. Had to have the entire brake system replaced at about 19,000kms (warranty covered it) then put after market dics/rotors on the rear about 6k later. The front swell horrible from overheating and cause the most violent vibrations when slowing from highway speeds unless you have 10-15 minutes between brake sessions for them to cool down

Sorry for the rant, long story short. My commute this morning was fabulous in my FoFo.
