2009 Ford Focus SES Coupe: Try Harder
October 01, 2008
Normally, I consider things like panel gaps and such to be a very minor concern - it just doesn't matter to me all that often. But this plastic cover in the rear seat of the Focus is obviously very poorly constructed. What really bugs is that I have to see the popped out cover each timeI look back tocheck on mydaughter. I triedpressingthe cover back into place but no go.
I genuinely like the Focus andtruly believe it's better than many small cars including theToyota Corolla and Hyundai Accent. But this business with plasticpanels is very irritating - too badI can't use Sync "Plasticcover; pop back into place."
