The problem is that if this is the case Ford never bothered to tell anyone, an even worse case of misrepresentation.
I am ready to file a complaint against the Ford Motor Company, its officers and directors on behalf of every Focus owner with 18" wheels with the US FTC.
Just return it to your dealer for a refund.
And good luck finding a lawyer to take this as a case of "misrepresentation". I know lawyers are normally a bunch of greedy schmucks ready to sue anyone at the drop of a hat but this would be a stretch for even the most experienced ambulance chaser.
I wish I had nothing better to do with my time than to whine about such a minor and simple to resolve issue.
