Just antidotal but. I think OEM Conti tires stink. I am v. Happy with the Coopers in terms of ride quality and noise.

I called my local dealer and they said that Job 1 Ford Focuses can't be updated to have the quad-screen trip computer :(

Then I want a job 2, that's pretty much utter bull that they would add they would add this mid model year and screw over those who bought their vehicle a few months before a change. What were they thinking?

I have 15k on my car now and I HATE the conti tires. They have tread but absolutely no grip, and forget about them in the winter. I think new tires (and rims) will be on there way real soon!

I have not found the conti tires to be especially good or bad, but I will likely replace them with Michellins when the time comes.

Apparently the 13 SE w/201A I just bought my kid is a job 2 car. It has the quad screen and the cooper tires. Also my wifes 13 escape has the quad screen too.

It happens all the time. Likewise, Job 1 2012 owners wanted the tilting head restraints, flex fuel and Kysor shutters standard on 2012 Job 2.

What were they thinking? Improvement.
