the Ford Focus? I've owned three Fords in my life time (back when I thought American Auto's were the best) and all turned out to be a POS. Ford, it seems, has always had a major quality control issue with their transmisions. Engines have always been solid. But it's also the little nicky-nacky things to. Maybe they've changed? But I doubt it. They still knockem out faster than anyone else, thus the poor qq issue.
