Focus Hood

I let my boss check out my car I just bought today at work... And he told me, that most cars after the year 2000 come with a hood insulator and a sticker that gives information about the engine. I just bought this car used, it's a 2002 zx3... and was wondering if those things come on the focus? I just want to make sure the car hasn't been in a unreported accident.

Thanks

Not true. My SVT has it while 2 other guys I know around here don't and they were like I didn't even know they made that for our cars!

Some do some dont. Seems like a sporadic thing. My 2001 doesn't, I've seen a 2001 that had it. My brothers 2000 doesn't have it but I've seen some 2000's that do.
