2008 Ford Focus: Joan Rivers and a Sable Wagon
April 03, 2008
Shorty after our long-term Ford Focus arrived a few months ago, Magrath and I had the following conversation regarding the Focus keys sitting on my desk (pictured).
Magrath: "Hey, have you seen the keys to the Focus?"
Me: "Yeah, they're right here."
Magrath: "Oh god. I was hoping those were to your Mom's '86 Sable wagon."
Do they open the doors? Yes, and I suppose that's all they need to do...
But this antiquated key and fob are indicative of an entire car created by the Joan Rivers school of automotive design. Unfortunately, a major facelift and some plastic chrome botox can't mask an aging car that screams in a raspy engine note: "I cut corners!"
