      No i'm not. It's personal bad luck with fords. Every time I get behind the wheel of a Ford it breaks. Edmonds doesn't know me.

      I will think of a better signature later.

      I can remember driving a Grand Marquis once. The horn actuator was not in the steering wheel.

      I almost broke my hand in slamming it on the steering wheel while trying to blow the horn.

      IMHO that's a good reason not to buy a Ford product.

      (Not that the tiny horn buttons on an Aveo steering wheel are much better...)

      ok Folks
      Took delivery 2011 Fiesta Sedan with 43 mile on car
      This is a 4 door sedan non-sfe version

      Will post for a few fillings!

      First 4 fuelings
      **MPG /CITY/HWY/A/C ON/OFF
      01.) 34.2 ..35% ..65%.........ON
      02.) 36.6 ..15% ..85%.........ON
      03.) 31.0 ..45% ..55%.........ON * spilled unknown amt of fuel on ground
      04.) 32.7 ..60% ..40%.........ON
      05.) 31.3 ..65% ..35%.........ON
      06.) 38.1 ..30% ..70%.........ON
      07.) 29.7 ..50% ..50%.........ON
      08.) 36.3 ..10% ..90%.........ON

      ps still like driving the aveo better, (has an armrest, better lumbar support) but ..........
      ps(1) has anybody seen the report on Forbes last week listing the "worst" cars on the road
      and their pics. ....sorry to say the Aveo was on the list. ......

      Yeah that forbes bit has been talked about. And I'm still wondering what they know about cars? Besides we all know the aveo is an economy car, and cheap. To me that's part of the apeal, having a cheap project car that I can fix and enhance, while still enjoying a new car.
