  1. How does one lock the gas lid on the 2014 Ford focus?
    This is a serious flaw, and leaves my vehicle vulnerable to gas tampering. Is there anything I can do to lock it?
    I didn’t spend 15,000 to have my vehicle wrecked. This vehicle has all the security features, but they sure went cheap when it came to the fuel lid!!!

  2. Ford Fusion I just rented had a button on the driver side door to open the fuel cover. Cant open it without pushing the button.
