Really? That's even more irritating, because along with my '13 ST I bought three '13 Titaniums, and that wasn't an option. Ford's moving backward.

Mine was a '12 so I'm not sure if they removed that feature in 2013.

Yup. They did.

My understanding was that Ford is no longer wiring the power to the roof to support the mirror or the HomeLink in the visor. The ST was probably the leading edge of this change, late enough in the 2013 model year that it came after this decision.

The ST mirror is mounted directly to the windshield class, so a wire coming out into space to get there would be a little ugly. Even gluing it to the windshield wouldn't be great. Easier to wire if there were an arm projecting forward from the roof to support the mirror. That theory doesn't apply to the HomeLink, though.

Probably just cost savings, in the end. But it's a shame, because one of the things I like about the Focus is that it's actually fairly high end: quiet, well behaved, lots of nice touches and luxury features, showing that small cars don't have to be crappy entry-level vehicles.

Yeah, the only tap-able switched power I could find in my roof was for the moonroof. If I didn't have that option I'd have had to run it down the A pillar to who knows where.

My Ti had the rain sensing wipers as well so it had a huge plastic cover leading from the roof liner to the mirror to house all the power cables. I much prefer the minimalist mirror on my ST even without the power mirror.

I do miss my homelink though, I used that daily.
