If you can put up with this guy he has pretty much gone over everything in his US spec Focus Titanium in his videos, which has been very useful to me. OCD FTW!


That is WAY COOL !!!!!!!

I goobered right into this one ... went up to the store to buy a few things tonight and forgot my wallet. After scooting home, I hopped out of me "Nugget" and retrieved the moola. A second after taking off (fortunately on a quiet street) my hood open warning was on ... huh?? I opened the hood all the way and closed it ... good to go.
Once at the store, I double checked how I get in and out of the car and sure enough, the hood release lever is just'a waiting for my sneaker to catch. Now that's a fancy trick!!!

(One might be the James Bond seat ejector....!)
If you pull the wiper lever toward you it does the windshield washer. Yesterday I figured out that if you push the lever away from you it does the rear washer.

i just noticed this while detailing the inside of my car today.

there's a rubber liner at the bottom of the 2 cup holders that has a convenient little pull tab to pull it out and clean it.

Anyone know where the trunk release is? In my haste with the car the other day I didn't see one. Had to stick my hand outside and hit the trunk button on the fob so the sales guy could get a dealer plate caught.

lol...I mean't from the inside, and on the sedan - is there one? I suppose it's not critical if there's not but in a situation like you're at the border and need to pop it or something - it would help.

You can either double tap the truck button on the key fob or hit the unlock button, there is a lever on the trunk that acts like a door and you can pull it when the car is unlocked
