What we have here is a fine running SVT Focus. It has all the options NADA lists for the SVT plus the audiophile stereo that includes a 6 disc DC changer and a power sunroof that does not leak. No dents, no rust, no mechanical problems. All the options operate as they should. No problems with the CV joints, it shifts as it should. If you are familiar with the SVT you know that this car has substantially more performance than a regular Focus. Build quality is also much better than the next generation Focus. This is the second engine in this car. The first had a bad main bearing. Replacing the engine was about the same as a rebuild so I had a used engine put in with almost exactly the same mileage as the car, so the 104K miles is accurate for both body and engine. I had a new clutch and timing belt installed when the engine went in. I've driven it for just a little less than 10,000 miles since the install and all is as it should be. Overall the car is in nice shape with no body damage. It was a southern car so it has no rust. The breaks are good, the tires also have about 10,000 miles and are in very good shape. The steering is tight, the whole car is tight. The reason for selling is that I have way too many toys and I need to thin the herd. The car is currently located in southern West Virginia but was in southern North Carolina before this. The worst thing about it is the flaking clear-coat on the bumpers. The rest of the paint is good. The hatch release on the dash works about 50% of the time, but the releases on the remotes always work. NADA clean trade is $4,450, retail is $6,550. My reserve is somewhere in between. Since this is for sale locally, I reserve the right to end the auction at any time. Of course shipping is at the expense of the buyer. I will assist with loading but the buyer must make all arrangements.

Ford is recalling 5,675 of its 2014 F-150 pickups over an issue with the electric power steering system. There haven't been any injuries or accidents due to the issue.
Wed, 27 Nov 2013 11:29:00 EST
Ford spokesman Mike Levine told Autoblog that the "electric power-assisted steering and motor position sensor gear were incorrectly installed by a supplier," leading to the recall.
While the recall is larger on the surface, it's important to note that only 260 trucks have been delivered to customers. The remaining pickups are currently en route to dealers. The affected vehicles were manufactured between May 26 and June 19.
Trucks have towing capacity, EVs have driving range and performance cars have Nürburgring lap times. What do all three have in common? They should all be taken with a grain of salt. Currently, there is no sanctioned way to record lap times or verify production-spec cars - a lesson we recently learned with the 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo - and until there is a way to do so (and there probably never will be), we'll never officially know the actual time it took for Ford to lap the 'Ring with its ultra-powerful Shelby GT500.

After posting a Ford-made video of a 2013 GT500 running around the 'Ring, the guys over at SVTPerformance.com (an enthusiasts forum not affiliated with Ford or SVT) wanted more answers. They got in touch with Ford's Global Performance Vehicle Chief Engineer Jamal Hameedi, who said until there is a way to verify the times and inspect the cars, Ford will not get involved with lap-time wars. In the email, Hameedi pointed out that the 'Ring is a useful tool in that it allows a wide spectrum of track conditions, but until there is a governed way to record times, there is no way to accurately compare cars head-to-head.
And as much as some may not like it, Hameedi speaks the truth. It really isn't possible to compare times from one car to another, unless those cars were lapping the same track at the same time with the same driver. Not that any of this means there won't be continuous wars by fans and manufacturers alike... in other words, feel free to voice your opinions in the Comments below.
In recent months, rumors had been flying about Ford CEO Alan Mulally potentially leaving the company to take a position at Microsoft. Last we heard, Mulally was planning to stick around at Ford through at least 2014, and in an interview today, that bit was confirmed by the CEO himself.
According to the Associated Press, in a report from The Detroit News, Mulally said he will not be leaving Ford for Microsoft, and reiterated that he will remain at the Blue Oval through 2014, if not longer. Mulally has "no plans other than to serve Ford," according to the report.
Mulally did not say whether or not he had been in talks with Microsoft at any point. Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has said he plans to leave the software company sometime this year.
