Truck at dealership...

Well, I worked a double last night, came home went to turn my truck off, and the key was stuck in the ignition, checked to see if it was fully in park, wheels straight. Called my salesperson and he told me to bring it in. Drove to dealer, and key came out right as I pulled in service. Pulled back out to go talk to salesperson and key was stucked, pulled back into service and it came out again.

So the Tech. is a buddy of mine and actually got it to get stuck... walked around the dealership awhile, and test drove an ecoboost F-150. went back into service and the whole steering column was ripped apart.

I'm stuck with a 2012 Focus until its fixed...

Ecoboost is pretty legit... I turned traction control off and launched in 2wd and spun all the way thru 1st... floored it from 30mph-80mph and it pulled good, very smooth and hardly felt it shift. Didn't feel like a v-6 at all.

Yeah I drove one a couple months ago and was pretty impressed. I hope all works out well with your truck.
