What is the most annoying problem with your Focus

What is the most annoying problem with your Focus.

I am on my 3rd used Focus the most annoying problem with one of the them was the doors would lock on their own ( I do not mean the auto lock when driving off, I always deprogram that silly feature)

One evening when filling-up I left the keys in the ignition and as I was filling-up all the doors locked. After a few weeks of ownership I noticed that the doors would lock randomly after the 1st incident I carried a key in my wallet.

A tune & a throttle body will do wonders.

That it isn't paid off. Only a few months left.

Well, I wish the clutch had more bite. It's also pretty easy to break the tires loose in the rain, which is a little annoying. No rattles or anything.

The traction thing is mostly a tire issue, but having the manual seems to make it really easy to break it loose. My dads fiancé has an 08 SES sedan with an auto (purchased after they found out just how nice mine was) and its not as easy to break loose in the rain.

That the AC does not work, and the problem lies within the evaporator. Not gonna pay around $1300 to fix it, so I am gonna deal without it. Besides, it doesn't get that hot here in Hawaii anyway...

My slave cylinder exploded after only being installed for 3 months and the new Motorcraft one that replaced it has already started leaking....

That and the O2 sensor keeps dying every 6 months
