I wondered too. But perhaps the person meant the "left" side if one were facing the front of the car. The reference to the passenger side can only mean one side no matter which way you are looking at the car. Anyway, I had a similar experience recently (passenger side crumbled - no airbag deployed) and would be interested in knowinf if anyone had a thought as to why that happened (or didn't).

I have the same car with 5 speeds, and my lowest mileage was 28MPG when it was new. It improved quite quickly after it got broken in. Now it has at least 30, but average 32mpg. Driving in the city is worst on mileage (my driving is 80% highway), but I can't see it being 200/tank. My EMPTY tank light came on about 280 when it's new, and for the last three/four years, it comes on when I hit 360 or even 370. The farthest I let it go on one tank was 425 miles on a road trip!
I do have my rear wiper stop working, and it's not the circuit breaker, but I don't want to spend time/money to fix it.

Guys do you know if Ford is going to ever bring the European Focus ever here?

It can be found over here under the skin of the Mazda 3. And thankfully not under the ugly skin of the new European Focus.

Your foot falling asleep is caused by a lumbar disc issue at Lumbar disc at L4/L5 in your low back. Simply purchase a back support from any drug store or "relax the back" store which puts a curve in your low back, and your foot will no longer go to sleep. You may want to check out whether you have a bulging or herniated disc in your low back.

#608 of 618 Extended warranty cost
Oct 16, 2007 (8:51 pm)
Since I want a ZX5 SES I will be scouring the certified used listings for a 2007 when I get ready to buy late next summer. Thank you Ford (NOT) for dropping the hatchback from the line so that I have no choice but to buy used. I would much prefer to buy at end of year clearance prices with a fat factory rebate piled on. Anyway, I'd like to ask buyers rather than sellers what was the cost for extended warranties actually purchased on these, and how much extended warranty they got for their money. Thanks in advance for any comments.
