2008 Ford Focus SES Coupe: How Low Can You Go?
April 02, 2008
It bothers me that there are no numbered gears on Ford's shifters. What ever happened to selecting a specific gear for climbing a hill or for engine braking? Call me old fashioned, but I Iiked it when I had options other than "Low." I guess the days of choosing your gear in a Ford went the way of the throttle cable. It's too bad, cause I liked those too...
