No 18s, and no real hot dogging, either. I would also say that you can't really say you're getting into F-150 territory, because that's assuming that the F-150 would be right around its estimates where the Focus isn't.
I'm actually mississauga area and I really wish i could sue the province for what they have done to our cities. They look like war zones. Gridlock beyond comprehension. I've been to L.A. What's that like 19 million people in that region? They have no where near the problems of an area of 5 million. Disgusting. My area is not as bad as Toronto, but the minute I'm off the highway and touch that gas pedal, the avg economy number starts climbing instantly.
