Today I landed in another 2014 Focus. A fine car, but this one had an extra feature enabled:

MyKey.

After observing the 80 MPH speed limiter (notified on start, not tested personally), and figuring they probably also left enabled the speed warning chimes, I asked for the adult key. :hyst:

That is one "busy" interior. I feel like I'm looking at a spaceship.


I thought this was the non-US interior :? I thought the US ones had MFT and a different setup.

Brought the Escape in yesterday. Walked across the street to Hertz and was put in a Red Volkswagon Jetta. Sat there for a minute or two because a warning light (low tire pressure) wouldn't go out on the dashboard. Went back in and notified the attendant. A few minutes later they discovered a staple in the rear passenger tire. So, they put me in a 2013 Chevy Spark. Nothing good to say about it. It's small, it's tiny, I can put it in my pocket. It's odd though, for a 2013, it only has 8800 miles on it. Hey, at least it's Silver.

Don't drive the Spark too hard. The squirrels in the engine are trying the best they can.

Loaner while the Focus gets some warranty work done.

2014 MKZ 2.0H... Interesting that the instrument display and interface is almost identical to the C-Max. There are white flowers along with the leaves on the right display. Still has the CVT windup when you get on it. Though I think the C-Max might be quicker. Obviously the rest of the car is VERY different. Fantastic looking, roomy, comfy seats, quiet when not giving it the beans. The button shift is interesting, and the touch sliders for the volume and fan control are a little odd. But over all very nice ride.
