2012 SE hatchback no USB

I just purchased a 2012 focus se hatcback with 5 speed. The car has sunroof, heated seats alloy wheels but no SYNC..means no USB. Is there a way to add a USB to this car?

By the way, how is the overall reliability for 2012 with stick shift.

Thanjs

Of course it depends on the car's history, but overall it should be reliable as hell. I've got 105K+ on my 5spd, and it's only needed basic maintenance.

I have about 101k on my '13 5MT (though I've only owned it for a year), but I did have to replace the axles (vibrating at highway speeds) and the passenger side upper motor mount (normal for these cars). I have a very small leak in my rear main seal (was that way when I bought it), but I hardly have to put oil in. Honestly, the primary issue with the Mk3 Focus is the DCT/TCM crap, which you avoided by starting with the correct transmission. Everything I can find shows that the car is extremely reliable when paired with the 5MT (the MTX75 is old/proven).

It has 98k and it will be reliable during my ownership.I am happy with it so far.

The car has new tires, brakes, o2 sensor, brake flush and a few filters. It also comes with 1 month 1k miles warranty...so with the 5 speed it was no brainer.

As mine approached 100K miles, I did the spark plugs, coolant drain/fill, and cleaned the MAF and TB. Just things you might want to consider.

The Steeda STB is a nice/cheap upgrade for the 5spd.
