2012 is totaled




Lady had 5 kids in her pickup and hit us in passenger side. So bought our 3rd. Focus SE sedan since Dec. 2011. Silver SE just turned 3000 miles and New 2014 has 222 miles ! Wrecked 2012 had 11,700 and insurance payoff was $18499 so could have been much worse. Noticed right away paddles for sync are gone so now use rt. pad on steering wheel for changing outputs or making phone calls. Also , all in one, center cluster avg. mpg, miles to empty etc. and visor vanity mirrors have lights unlike 2012. Does have Conti tires. Was built July 2013. As is very new does have light shudders on takeoff as did the other 2 when new. All are/ were Select-shift . Silver 2013 is smooth as glass. Wife will miss her fog lights but has much nicer wheels !

Only option on this SE is Sat. radio and automatic. Sync and cruise control is standard so does have left paddle controls for that. Race red was picked so hopefully people will see her coming !

So sad to see it. you should go yank those fog lights out and swap them over if they let you.

It works as shown in this picture from the 2014 Focus owners guide first printing.

Basically the favorites and mode selection are deleted, and the volume and sync phone/ voice commands are condensed into the right hand d pad control.

Ha, so it looks like they are never going to re-implement the favorite buttons as customizable again.... since they deleted them.

This is new information to me. So, the entertainment menu can only be scrolled through using the center console controls?

Sorry to see your 2012 like that OP. That picture makes me cringe...
