    Default Blow Out today!!!

    Used the Focus today - the first time in 3 weeks really, and I've gotta use it for work Monday - so took it for a spin to the parents in Norwich.

    About 5 miles from theirs, on a dual carriageway at a speed I really dont want to disclose, I could hear a ticking noise from the offside, thought - hmm sounds like wind baffle off the wing mirror base plate..... lifted off a bit, pulled back to the inside lane and the outside tyre hit the catseyes. THEN I knew it was the tyre. Did everything right - backed off the power and made no sudden steering or braking, 5 mins and were away again.

    Scary though considering the speed involved but credit to the Focus, it was smooth, controllable and gave a clear indication of what was going on.

    BTW our son slept in the back the whole time!
