This. Plus the rest of the poasts are in Spanish.

But I would go either no frills with plaid or full-boat R... definitely not a $35k non-R.

Re: Ford Will Stop Selling Fiesta, Focus, Fusion In North America

Actually I think my only “coolant temp” gauge is the idiot light that pops on when it’s too hot. Not totally unlike modern coolant temp gauges, but would be nice to have regardless.

Seems stupid...

Ouch - they got rid of one of the best OEM wheels for those? They remind me of the golf R wheels (not a compliment)
