Recently purchased a 2012 Ford Focus for Family use, as I mainly drive a 95 Camry for work. I questioned the "Only" one key-fob available. Dealer said they only provide one on used cars. Oh well, I'll have another key made later.
My Daughter mentioned that the car was restricted on speed to 80 mph, and the radio couldn't be turned up. I didn't think much about it, figured I'll read the manual later to un-do the restrictions. Well I had a conference to go to in south Austin. On the way there interstate speed is 75, The "reaching max speed chime" got to be very annoying. I made the "almost fatal" mistake of taking the toll way where the speed limit is 85. dam near got run over several times. During the meeting I read the manual and it said I needed the original key fob to program the mykey. I stopped at the dealer on the way home, and they said I need to go to parts, He took the car information and said a week for the key to come in. I said "any cost for the key?" Loooong pause, but before he answered I said that the sales man (Bob) did not inform me that the car was CRIPPLED when I purchased it, and that it was the most annoying and potentially dangerous car I have ever driven. At that point he said he would talk to Bob about this.
It has been over a week now and I have not heard from the dealer. Now I have another issue. The contract stated my monthly payments would be $XXX.XX, and I made the first payment (on time) to the finance company. I received the next payment notice and all looked fine, then I received a letter from them saying the account number needed to be changed, and a revised payment with the new account # and an increase in the payment by about $30 with no explanation. I am getting so fed up with this car.
