We have been on a Ford Focus ST kick for the past several posts and we still have much more in the way of details to share with you on behalf of your Collinsville Ford cars dealer near Caseyville IL. We have exhausted the tire issues from these Collinsville Ford cars and all but squashed any real concern given the two sets, though inconvenient to purchase perhaps, have tested as being the best alternative for optimum performance at the seasonal intervals by a long shot.
Looking at handling now, these Collinsville Ford cars near Caseyville have great stats to report here as well. “Ford also worked over the ride and handling for 2015, and the results are more profound than what we expected after reading the brief. Most of the work was carried out on the front end, with a stiffer subframe, springs, and bushings. (The rear also got firmer bushings.)” There was indeed a less than smooth ride reported initially and we are glad to announce that Ford has modified a few things to make this a nonissue. “A choppy ride was one of our few complaints of the ST when it launched, and Ford’s removal of some play in the front has done wonders. The ’15 car makes use of the firmer springs without the harshness of, say, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution or the Mini John Cooper Works.”
The electrically assisted steering has also been reported as changed in ways that involve a new flat bottom steering wheel that did wonders for the ingress and egress, giving these new Ford cars in Collinsville near Caseyville a more refined feel and drive altogether. Car and Driver says, “It’s smoother in transitions than before and doesn’t beat you up nearly as much. However, the ride is still firmer than the GTI’s, and without driving a ’15 on OE summer rubber, we can’t definitively rule out that the newfound road compliance is due to a potentially softer tire sidewall of the all-season rubber.” The above, pointing once again at potential tire decisions getting credit for the overall improvement in these Ford Cars in Collinsville.
