What is the most annoying problem with your Focus

What is the most annoying problem with your Focus.

I am on my 3rd used Focus the most annoying problem with one of the them was the doors would lock on their own ( I do not mean the auto lock when driving off, I always deprogram that silly feature)

One evening when filling-up I left the keys in the ignition and as I was filling-up all the doors locked. After a few weeks of ownership I noticed that the doors would lock randomly after the 1st incident I carried a key in my wallet.

My slave cylinder exploded after only being installed for 3 months and the new Motorcraft one that replaced it has already started leaking....

That and the O2 sensor keeps dying every 6 months

The most annoying thing about my focus is now I have to look up rear brakes for a caprice.
