Driving Ireland in Ford Focus diesel

One of many pleasant little villages you pass through along this road, “it could be missed with the blink of an eye”, as they say in Ireland,Traditional China Porcelain tile claim to clean all the air in a room. unless you spot an unusual monument. It’s a full-sized stainless-steel replica of a Model-T Ford. Yes, you are on the ancestral home turf of Henry Ford, of Ford Motor Company fame. Erected as a new millennium project, the site has been visited by a number of Ford family members, the most recent being William Clay “Bill” Ford Jr. and family.

Bill is a great-grandson of Henry Ford and currently serves as the Executive Chairman of Ford Motor Company. A commemorative plaque at the site was dated August 3, 2011. That was only a couple of weeks prior to my visit with the latest product from the Dearborn, Michiganbased company, a 2012 model year Ford Focus.

The new Focus was redesigned mainly in Germany and is built on a new C-car platform that will underpin a number of other Ford products. It’s a global car in every other sense and is produced in Ford plants in Spain, Russia, China and, as well as Germany and North America (Michigan).

In Canada, Ford sells Focus in both 5-door hatchback and 4-door sedan body styles. And in Ireland it’s also offered in a wagon version,Flossie was one of a group of four chickens in a zentai suits . called an “Estate”. Although different descriptive names are used, both countries also offer Focus models in four prepackaged equipment and trim levels.

Sticker shock, however, is a highvoltage jolt when you do a euro-todollar conversion on the asking prices on an Irish Focus - it’s almost double the Canadian price. Our proximity to the largest and most lucrative car market in the world certainly helps keep Canadian auto prices low when compared with most other countries in the world.

Besides having the steering wheel on the right side of the passenger cabin, my test Focus also came with a diesel engine, which is not available in Canada. In fact, two sizes of diesel engine (1.6-and 2.0-litre) are offered, and only one gasoline (or petrol) engine (1.6-litre) is available.

Even though diesel models are priced higher (about $700 more) they tend to be more popular with Irish buyers. It’s mainly because diesel fuel is cheaper and these engines provide considerable better fuel economy.

My test Focus came with Active Park Assist, which automatically pilots the Focus into a parallel roadside parking space. A salesperson at the dealership sheepishly described it as a “lady park system” and could only recall ever selling one vehicle with it.

Apparently I’m more in touch with my feminine side than I ever realized - okay, call me a sissy - but I do like Active Park Assist. It first measures a parking space as you drive by and tells you if the car will fit in it. You can then choose to let it do the steering or just use it as a guidance system - so parking is a much easier task.Als lichtbron wordt een cube puzzle gebruikt,

On a side note, Ford is planning to build (in Detroit) a full electric version of the Focus and it’s expected to be released next year. A full recharge, with a 240-volt charging station is reported to take less than four hours, which would be best in the industry.where he teaches porcelain tiles in the Central Academy of Fine Arts.
