So in two days you put a few thousand miles on and it fell apart? Or you wanted to rave about the car and rant about the car so you chose two different forums?

Or is this just another Allyy profile...

Every automaker is too involved with quantity over quality.

I, too, thought Ford had finally gotten it with this car. I think I was just spoiled with my Scion, though, which had only 1 problem that wasn't self-inflicted over the 85k miles I owned it. I just hope that we'll see a guaranteed fix to this issue soon.

Are you serious. I'm sure when all these people bought their foci they thought the same as I did. Until the damn thing started rattling. Then having to replace front end suspension parts. HS. By the way I owned a 2003 focus which I put 269,000 miles on. So, I believe I earned the right to rant over a car that I paid good money for.

Did I say my car was falling apart. No I didn't. Read my post before you react.

If it is so bad, why would you post literally only 2 days ago that it was absolutely the best car you've ever owned? 6-18-2012 @ 9:50 pm. Wtf happened to your car yesterday to do a 180 change over that post, the one on 5-10-2012 and 4-26-2012?
