So Long Fellow Fanatics

I traded away the Focus in this afternoon. I really wanted to like this car but the never ending issues left me with a bad taste overall.
In my short time here I learned a lot and hopefully helped a bit.
I'm sure the majority of these cars are trouble free. Wish mine was too.
Best of luck everyone!

2013 Acura RDX AWD with Tech. package. My previous daily driver was a crossover too.
I'll pop in from time to time to monitor the front end clunk thread. I really want to see Ford step up to the plate and deal with this issue once and for all!

Same love/hate thing with my Focus.
We'll see if they can get the tranny sorted out; if they can't , it will be a cold day someplace before I buy another Ford.
Really had all the fun I care to have.

Nice crossover. They are pretty nice looking, especially on the inside. Goodluck and I truly need someone to tell me if I have this front end clunk. I don't think I do but I'm curious. Haha.

Keep stopping in. Make a few posts and enjoy your truck.

Sorry about your Foci, best of luck with the Acura! That's one of the few car makes I've never owned.
