Is there a AUX input in Focus 2012 S model?

Hi,

I got a Focus S 2012 today and will receive it next week. What really got my attention is the AUX button. I searched for the aux jack(input) and couldn't find it. I have looked inside the armrest and it's not there. Asked the salesman and he had no idea where it is. It crossed my mind that it is not installed in the S model.

It would be stupid to put a AUX button without having the AUX jack installed in the vehicle right!?

We rented an 'S' model and it had an "AUX" button also but no aux jack. I think you called it just about right!

I like it. When I stop, the MP3 player, cable and all, goes in the glove compartment.

Thanks god it has. It's a great car with some stupid flaws though. Like no windows controller for the back seats and traction control cannot be turned off.
I'm going to check the golvesbox today when I go to the showroom.

Thanks again guys and to BarryL too!

Okay so I have went to the showroom today and checked the car again.

Unfortunatly, it has an empty slot for the AUX jack. It has a USB input though.

Here is a pic:


aux is important to me as any other feature in the car. Is there a way to install the aux ? and it is easy ? costly?

i'd rather have that than the aux. Charge your ipod while playing it. Does it have the standard head unit? I want to install a USB if I can!

This is exactly what I have inside the Basic model.



I'm not sure if the USB would work without SYNC since I don't have it. or it does?

I looked all over for the AUX jack too - even in the glove box. Possible I missed it but I don't think I would have missed a USB connector.

Do you need SYNC for USB? - a good chance you don't. Other rentals we've had had USB, Nissan/Chevy, and no SYNC. It would suck if it was just a power source though, on the Focus.

You can charge the IPOD without a USB while using AUX. You just need a cigarette lighter/USB adapter (less than $5) for the power source, AUX for the audio.
