I discovered the other day that I can load mp3s onto a USB thumb drive and get SYNC to play songs off of it instead of my Fruit Product.

Either way, super neat feature, and using it in Shuffle mode works well enough, though some sort of playlist file support would be amazing. Now I don't have to carry/leave a valuable piece of kit in the car, or my CD case.

I <3 my FoFo, and SYNC.

I love my baby just the way it is :) Not bad for an S model either, nicely equipped and I didn't want all the gadgets.....it's just more than can break anyway.

I just got from my first long road trip in the focus last week. It was about 500 miles each way and it got about 38-39 mpg both ways. I was pleased with this since I've got the bigger wheels and around where I live I'm getting in the low 30s. It was fun and comfortable to drive for long periods of time.

Even though I've had the car for 4 months now, I still see people coming up to check it out when it's parked. Like someone else said, people are always curious to know what it is since I debadged the focus but left the titanium. Even the guys at my detail shop, who see really nice cars everyday, said "wow, nice car!" when I went there.

I was a GM gal for years starting with a 97 Sunfire, 2001 Sunfire, 2007 G5 and then 2008 G5 GT. The list of annoyances with GM products for me is long and the way I was treated by the dealer last time sent me to the Ford dealer to trade my G5 GT in. It was a nice looking car but starting to have problems left and right. My new Focus seems to have a much better fit and finish and so far I am very happy with it.

Hey folks,

I've been lurking on the forum for some time, but since I've just recently acquired a 2012 SE, I figured I should sign up and contribute where I can!

Just a couple quick questions for the better-informed! The manual indicates the break-in should last about 1000 miles with varying speeds; is there a range I should vary between? I have a few trips coming up in August that will be 200-400km or so (300-600m), and I was planning on getting to 105km for about 50km, then increasing to about 110km for another 50km, then 115km, and back down. Does that sound like an acceptable break in, or do I need to vary the speeds more?

Also, I was suuuper excited that the seats fold completely flat on the Focus! I love this feature on my old Golf, and discovered the back seats flip up and the back rest fold completely flat. Perfect for storage!

Thanks everyone!

Well, here in the states we deal with MPH not Km....but I would say just don't put it in cruise control for the entire trip. I think you're probably alright with your plans, just up and down with speeds every so often is good.
