Some people that drive....

Some people that drive big ass Ford Expeditions think they invented the road... I was cruising along on a road at 45 mph where the posted speed limit is 45 mph. I start to descend down this hill and this big ass Expedition pulls out. I let off the gas and pop it in 3rd, let out on the clutch and this starts to slow me down. Well, she pulls out but only goes 15 mph…Anticipating she is going to get up to speed I brake a little later than normal. I am thinking what is this girl doing she can’t turn anywhere…Next thing I know we finally pick up speed then I give her about 1 car length and she slams on the brakes…I am forced to slam on mine…Then she just starts off like nothing happened…

Well during this breaking incident I heard an awful clunk...Anybody know what that may have been?

I had just put on new rotors and have been watching it for a couple months but now after this uncalled for incident my steering wheel is shaking during breaking again...

Oh well what comes around goes around…and I hope she gets hers…

I don't even know why I try to drive anything nice...All it takes is one person with a bad attitude to ruin it...

It probably has something to do with those new rotors. Who put them in?

I don't know anything about brakes on the focus but my guess is it would have something to do with them. Were both sides changed? I remember way back when someone that only changed one side on their van and it caused shaking. I had a car with something on the front end out of alignment that also caused shaking while braking but it was also noticable at 65 mph and up. Out of curiousity how old is the car?
