#1 of 32 Heated seats burn bottoms
Feb 18, 2008 (4:16 pm)
I use to get frustrated because the heated seats would not come on or come on a few minuets, go off and not come back on. Ford says they are fine when they test them. Now they are burning butts! I mean bad blistering burns!
Anyone else have this hot cross buns problem?

I have an 04 model w/heated seats. I remember a recall on this about 2 years ago which of course was taken care of under the program. They did not tell me what service was actually done to the seat. If I recall correctly the car was only in the shop for about one hour, which indicates to me that it may have been just "precautionary recall". A loose wire or faulty heater element could be a disaster.
I have about a ten minute drive to the point where I join my buddies for running on these cold winter week-end mornings. I have come to appreciate the "warm-up" on my butt and achy back before doing a little stretch preceding the running.

We have an '04 ZTS ( 4-door ). It has the Premium Sound System. In addition to the 6 disc in-dash CD changer/radio, it also has a rather large trunk-mounted subwoofer.
#6 of 32 Ford Focus 2010 water stains on seat
Dec 27, 2010 (9:18 am)
Has anyone had problems with water stains on the seats of a 2010 Ford Focus. The water stains are due to condensation from a water bottle. I took it to the dealer and they said it was not their problem. The car only has 7500 miles on it and the seats are a mess due to the water stains. This is the first time I have ever had a vehicle leave stains on the seats due to water. This is also the first time I have purchased a Ford. It think it will be my last.

I talked to Ford Customer Care Rep. They contacted the dealership while I was on the phone. I was told not to clean my car with water because water would make the stains worse. That tells me Ford knows they have a problem. They said they could not do anything about it. This car was bought brand new and is only about 7 months old. If I went to trade it in on a new Ford I bet they would decrease the value of the car because of the stained seats. Somehow that just is not right. Nothing I can do about it but warn others. BEWARE OF FORDS WITH CLOTH SEATS. High probability the seats will stain from water.

I am a neat nick so that takes Focus off my list. It's either Mazda or the new Golf R.

I have the same trouble. I spilled just a tad of water on my seat of my 2009 Ford Focus, and it left a water stain.
The last time, I took my car to a professional detailer. A $100 detailed my car, and this included removing the water stains.
I just spilled water for a second time, so I'll be out another $100 for detailing.
The moral of my story is not to drink anything in my car.
Oddly, though, when I get into my car wet from rain, I have no problem.
