SFE Package

I'm wondering how many SE owners who have an SE Focus have the SFE package installed without it being posted on the window sticker? I discovered mine has the package installed today.

What do you mean you have the SFE package but nothing on the window sticker?

Are your tires the LRR contiprotouring tires instead of the contiprocontact tires?

Do you have rear disk brakes but steel wheels with the aero hub caps, or just the standard snow flake hubcaps?

Do you mean you have the active grille shutters? Those do not signify the SE-SFE package (well they did initially, but they were planning on rolling those across all models eventually, and sometime in late Job 1 they had done so, and it was official for Job 2 builds (which yours isn't if its Kona Blue as that color ended production early in June 2011 due to the Tsunami in Japan making the paint hard to come by.) Job 2 cars were built after 3/5/12.

If you take your vin and post it to etis.ford.com you can search under vehicle and find every feature the car came with when it was built and even find the exact build date if you didn't already know it.

No, although they were assuming that they have an SE SFE without it showing up on the window sticker, so I asked them what they thought made it an SE-SFE.

The initial press materials only mentioned the SE SFE package as having the active grille shutters, however even at the initial launch it was not true. In cold weather states, and other locations on most models above the S during the Job 1 builds they started to roll out the active grille shutters across the rest of the line up.

So I never said it was impossible for a Job 1 SEL to have active grille shutters, but to assume it was an SFE based solely upon having them is a false assumption.

My 4/23/12 build Job 2 SEL has the active grille shutters.

I have a standard SE w/ stock 16 hubcaps. The reason I asked is I have seen my focus get 40+ mpg even have a pic on my cell. I looked and saw the active grill shutters. I was just curious how many other owners have them on their trim levels. By the way my build date is 02/12/2011.

Gas mileage doesn't signify the SFE package either. I have the sport and can get over 60 MPG on a certain road under certain weather conditions. Don't expect to be able to do so though. That's accomplished after research and understanding how the car behaves with its fuel usage and knowing where the MPH sweet spot is.

Yeah. The route I can do it on is completely flat. No hills where I live.
