Well, it's in the shop already. Only 15,000 miles. The synergy drive failed and left me on the side of the road. Who knows how long it will take to fix. Stuck with a Focus for part of this New England winter. Guess what? When the synergy drive dies, you can't even push the thing to the side of the road. It took six mechanics to move it 5 feet from the flatbed to the lift!

How about making the tech actually work reliably? Too much to ask?
