Hey folks!

Congrats to those of you who have a shiny new 2013 Focus!

For those of you who have a Focus (or any other Ford, for that matter) on order, I can keep an eye on the ETA if you PM me a VIN or order number/dealer name.

I've already been in contact with some of you who are experiencing the persistent beeping, but if anyone else has a Focus that is exhibiting that characteristic, please reach out to me via PM. I'll get your cases escalated to the regional level; all I'll need is your VIN, estimated mileage, preferred servicing dealer, and daytime phone number.

Thanks everyone! Have a great weekend.
Crystal

Swapped out my 2011 Focus SE, mt 5spd on September 8th for 2013 SE Hatchback, 5spd mt, sterling gray metallic. Included options were Sirius XM, and power moonroof. Sync / 6 speaker configuration included.

Have tinted the windows (15%), moonroof (5%) and the windshield (50%). New sound--amp, powered sub-woof & speakers--to be installed next Tuesday.

BTW...I have NO affiliation with Crutchfield. Loaded the equipment into my on-line cart about 3pm yesterday 09/27, my advisor, Buck, monitored my order, shipped the equipment out 2 day free UPS, and it arrived at UPS in Doraville, GA at noon TODAY for delivery to me on Monday, October 1. Fantastic service.

I just reviewed a thread asking if anyone has updated his 10 speaker Sony system, which motivated me to return to this thread.

As I mentioned in my post above, I am having new equipment installed on Tuesday. The 6 speaker system IMHO is simply awful. MP3 & any Sirius music sound the worst. A CD of a particularly well produced album (i.e. Eagles, Hotel California) is listenable. But at it's best, listening to this system is like listening with cotton stuffed in my ears.

I don't consider myself an audiophile by any stretch, and I am spending less than $1,000 total, but I do enjoy a wide range of music genre, and the sound system can make or break my ride.

First Post, newbie here. I bought a 2013 Tuxedo Black Titanium sedan one week ago today. Only option on it is the power moonroof. Got the windows tinted (35% all around) yesterday. The car looks great, nothing to complain about yet. Almost got a 2012 Ingot Silver with the handling package but the tires wouldn't do well with the Michigan winters here. The 2013 was cheaper and had the back up camera and factory remote start. I do wish I had the rain sensing wipers and auto-dimming rear view mirror like the 2012s had but in reading some of the other threads, looks like they were troublesome.

Congrats on the new car! I was between tuxedo black and white platinum but I went with white. They're both beautiful colors!

Just got a Candy Blue 2013 Titanium with the Moon roof, Handling Pkg, Parking Assist, and scuff plates. I'm wanting to know what all comes with the Handling pkg besides the Summer only tires (michelin super sport 3's). Also try to figure out all the buttons. Its going to be my wifes car but I'll drive it to work. My Mustang GT/CS and F-150 Raptor suck for gas mileage.

The handling package comes with 18" five spoke wheels, Michelin summer tires, "optimized suspension components" (dunno what) and a full size spare tire in the trunk.

Yea the full size spare is on a 16" rim, figure that one out??

For my winter tires, how small can I go? 15" ??? I know if the spare is 16" that would work but can I go to 15"

The full size still has a outer diameter equal to the 18"s, that's why it's a full size spare.
