You forget the bloke is in Australia. Where they all hang upside down anyway...

It is odd to see the steering on the right side though.
I just lubed my rubber stuff in the doors etc and waxed the right side of my car today. Did all the rubber door parts to keep them fresh... Once a year total cleanup.
Tomorrow I will do the 'other' side' ... the correct drivers side.. the side God intended us all to drive LOL
Still LOVE my Focus and look at it lovingy every time i see it.

Hey, what's not to love about towing a 14' boat loaded with camping gear, driving more for speed than economy, a/c on the whole way, over mountain passes and averaging 30 MPG on the whole trip! Whoooooohooooooo!!!!

I bought my Sonic Blue S trim focus with DCT 2/11/2012. I only have 6k miles (been unemployed for the bulk of that time ). I am glad I did not splurge for the higher trim (I am not a fan of cruise control) or a hatchback (too SUV/CRVish for me). FWIW, I would have bought a Focus wagon in a heartbeat.


I am still very happy with the car. Only issue - the right rear turn bulb blew and it took 2 weeks for Ford to get the part. The mileage is what I expected at 27ish MPG in rush hour stop and go traffic. In ideal conditions, I know I would hit the 37ish MPG claim. Stop and go jerkiness is similar to a manual. AC is not the greatest (though I think Freon made the difference in the older cars)

Driving is even more interesting - got used to it (in the UK) but when I got back to the states I caught myself going to the car's right to get in and once reaching to shift with my left hand!

20% on the sides and 15% on the rear window. Even did the sunroof 15% too which really keeps sun and heat down when I have the shade pulled back.
