So it always had it? I always wanted it. There are after market ways of doing it for about $200 buck! Just another nice little thing the Focus gives us!!!!

Yep, like Lo-Fo said, it has always been there (of course, no matter how convenient it is it doesn't help eliminate the "lane-drifters" that wouldn't use a lane-change signal even if they had a gun to their head).

When I was test-driving the 2012, my sales associate told me about the 3-blink lane-change signal. He told me it took a while for him to get used to it in the Edge he used as a demo.

Myself, I love using them and it took no time at all to "get used to".

I love the convenience signal feature. I've had it on my last four cars, including the Focus.

I also like how the regular signal won't be interrupted in the middle of a flash. It'll blink for the full duration, no matter what. It removes one of my neuroses - in my last car I'd try to time it so that I'd disengage the signal stalk while the "blink" was off. Like I said, it's neurotic, but that's just how I am.

I just realized that if you press the max defroster button, you can return to your old setting by pressing it again. I used to have to manually dial down the temperature.

If you are using the cruise control and you head into a lower speed zone and quickly click down the cruise to a lower speed the dct equiped car will actually downshift a gear to help the car slow down quicker than it would normally coast down
If you slowly drop the cruise speed down then it justs coasts down.

I have noticed that if your listening to music and you go from say 10-20 mph up to 40 pretty quick, the volume and bass increases. Presumably it increases due to it wanting to compensate for increased road noise. Doing a fast acceleration though makes it more noticeable, especially when your listening to some techno. It will also decrease the volume when you slow down. I have a Ti, don't know if the other trims do that.

There is a speed setting. It controls the volume based on speed. You can turn it off.
