I recently bought a 2002 4-door Focus LX used from Enterprise Rent a
Car, with the 4 speed auto trans, 2 liter standard engine. and 14 inch
wheels. I have a few questions for the more seasoned Focus owners.
1. I really don't like the tiny 14 inch standard wheels. Can I just go
out and buy 15 or 16 inch wheels and slap them on? Willl it affect the
handling and for better or worse? any recommendations for
manufacturers beside Ford?
2. The headlights go out when I turn off the engine. Are they supposed
to do that? It's the first time I've ever had a car that did that and
it's as annoying as the way the interior lights come on when you shut
the car off. I have to keep the key in and turn on the acc to use
them if the engine is off.
3. Has anyone ever bought a Focus from one of the rental companies and
had a problem? How was it dealt with?
4. What have you guys averaged in terms of mileage? I seem to filling
up more than I did with my 91 Thunderbird, but it had a bigger tank. I
keep reading 26 mpg highway, but I seriously dout that's what I'm
