    Too bad that can't be said about the interior pieces.
  • Being a product of the 80's, I missed the "filler cap behind the license plate" fiasco. Personally, i wish they would do something like that on the rear of the car again. I realize most plates are now located on trunks/hatches, making the license plate idea impossible, but having no holes in the side of the car seems appealing to me.
  • I'd say the old-school, fuel-cap-behind-license-plate-flap was the most well integrated fuel door in the history of fuel doors, but maybe that's just me. (But why do you call it a "fiasco," 330i_zhp? Did I miss something?) Also, one never had to worry about which side of the car the fuel door was on. Of course, if I remember correctly, it was a bit of a PITA to insert the nozzle with the spring-loaded flap fighting to re-position the license plate... Meanwhile, this Focus fuel door is hardly special to the ST, it having been on every Focus hatch since the 2012 model year. (But I guess if you've got to write something...)

    I like that there is no fuel door button for me to forget to push before leaving the cabin and that there is no gas cap to lose when I put the pump away.
  • that's pretty clean
