Congratulations!
The Taurus is not for sale here! IDK why!
Nice color!
Why did you trade it? I mean you already drive a 2014 and now you drive a 2011?

He went from a compact to a full size, FWD to AWD, and 4 cylinder N/A to a turbo 6 Cylinder. I'd say that's mostly why he traded it.

What I was looking at prior to purchasing the Slocus, lol. Focus just fit the bill for my needs right now. Congrats though! The SHO is SO much fun. Many, many smiles will be made in that car!

Sub'd for accessories though.

Yup this plus we needed more room since we have a 15 month old. The convertable car seat was taking up way too much space and we were not confortable.

I sold them all with the car(just have the tuner which i will probably re-use on this car). The dealer liked the stuff i did to my car and had a younger buyer lined up already. They gave me a lot more than what the trade value is so i was ok with it.

I will miss the mpgs! On my 2 hour drive home i averaged 27.5mpg driving 72-75, which is not terrible but focus was getting 36-39!

This is true. Its too quiet inside and you cant tell you are going 60 in a 45 zone lol.

That's a first, normally dealers will try to pin any mods against you and try to lower the trade value.

My Charger was the same way. These big cars just float and make it hard to feel the speed.

Yup i agree. I think its because my car was pretty rare with the options and 5 speed and they had someone who wanted it before we traded.
