Yeah, that bugs me too. I'd like to warm it up, but I don't want anyone to steal my shit. lol I always keep my other key in my wallet tho...

I have to do the same on the BMW I am kind of use to it now. On the wife's Civic key slides in like a hot knife through butter. I would say the 2004 Civic is a better engineered car then the 2010 BMW. Hats off to Honda

Accidentally turning on the windshield wipers because the stalk switch is too close to the steering wheel. The dealer refusing to replace the broken steel seat back frame while under warranty. The "lifetime" air filter partially plugging up and reducing fuel mileage by 15%. The junk latch on the center console storage tray that doesn't hold the lid closed. The crap dog bone transaxle mount.

"Lifetime Air Filter" I have never heard of such a thing. I am also a great believer in no such thing as lifetime.

At about 65,000 miles the fuel mileage had dropped. I couldn't get the mileage back up to normal. Finally read a post on FF about changing out the lifetime filter-Ford's claim later amended to 100,000 miles. All bogus claims. An AFE dry filter #21-35035 w/pre-filter sock is butted up to the bottom of the headlight.
Gets better fuel mileage than new w/ more power.

I've been a little annoyed at how aftermarket un-friendly the sound system is in my '11. I've done plenty of work to improve the sound but I've still got some gremlins living in the front passenger door speaker and I can't seem to improve the situation...

The gear box does NOT like cold mornings. Getting it into 1st and subsequently into 2nd can be a challenge before its had time to warm up.

The seats are sort of uncomfortable.

Every car has its own set of problems and so far the Focus has the fewest for me.

What do you mean gremlins in your front door?

I've recently have been finding my seats a little uncomfortable.

Many years ago I was sucked-in with all the advertizing with a K&N air filter, after a few months of use I removed it and threw it out and went back to the paper filter, Seems kind of silly to clean an air filter now a days. A few years later there was a re-call on the K&N dew to the material coming apart.
