Ain't that the truth.

I had a related experience with my '04 Focus I bought back in October. I went through a lot of hassles installing a cheap remote starter, dreaming of having a warm car and...

Well, I'm just glad my sooper-dooper Ford anti-theft system is working, protecting my car 24-hours a day.

(Although, I'm pretty sure the fact that it's a 2004 Focus should be enough of a theft...

Glad you liked it, but you'll notice I didn't mention the name of the Ford dealer where this took place (which rhymes with Freedom Ford in Edmonton) because I don't want to embarass them.

Well, I'm not pretty or have a horse stable like "Deb" in Toronto, and I'm not exactly a "new" Ford owner. But if you're interested, I'd be happy to tell you my Ford Focus story!

The '04 I bought...

My mind is made up for the time being, barring any compelling reason to change it, which I'm quite open to.

And I have done Google "research". That's my whole point. Beyond vague anecdotes, I...

My guess is that people who are in a financial position to buy a $100K car didn't get there by being loose with their money in the first place.

Wartburg -- that was a European car, wasn't it?

Anyone want to buy a mid-80's BMW? How about a used Audi or Mercedes? Not me, thanks.

Let's face it, a lot of European cars have had horrible...
