  6. https://arstechnica.com/cars/2018/04/ford-to-end-almost-all-us-car-sales-focusing-on-suvs-and-trucks/ yes, even the Focus RS! — Say goodbye to nearly all of Ford’s car lineup: Sales end by 2020 It's killing the Focus, Fiesta, Fusion, and Taurus, will focus on SUVs and trucks. Jonathan M. Gitlin - 4/26/2018, 3:04 PM Enlarge / Ford’s truck business will continue growing as the company adds new models and powertrains with an eye toward continued growth in high-end trims. But if you want a sedan or hatchback, you better act now, because they're going away soon. Ford 309 On Wednesday, Ford dropped a bombshell during its Q1 earnings call: it's going to stop selling almost all its cars in the US. The Mustang will remain on sale, as will the Focus Active, a model that won't debut until next year. But kiss goodbye to the Fiesta, Focus, Fusion, Taurus, and C-MAX. Instead, the company will focus almost exclusively on SUVs, crossovers, and trucks in the US domestic market. Ford President and CEO Jim Hackett cited the declining popularity of the car—which the company pioneered more than a century ago—as the reason for the decision. "We are committed to taking the appropriate actions to drive profitable growth and maximize the returns of our business over the long term. Where we can raise the returns of underperforming parts of our business by making them more fit, we will. If appropriate returns are not on the horizon, we will shift that capital to where we can play and win," he said. As we learned earlier this year, Ford has redesigned Explorer and Escape SUVs coming next year, with a reborn Ford Bronco plus another unnamed crossover coming soon after. And it still plans to expand its lineup of battery electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid EVs, launching six by 2022. Jonathan M.

    Double din size

    I think you will find that the 6.2 to 7 inches are the view-able front screen size, double din refers to the part of the unit that fits into the dashboard and are about 8.2 inches wide over the securing clips and 4 inches high. Not long taken the Ford/Sony cd/radio out of our 2006 Focus and replaced it with an Android type Informatics with all the bells and whistles, DAB, reversing camera, sat nav, BlueTooth.

    Home CCTV advice

    Hi Zico I used the item number to look at it but could not see a photo with that hatch place open, looking further at the specs it would seem you are right about being able to use an internal hard drive. HDD Type:1*SATA interface,Max Capacity 4 TB Am I right in thinking that would be a 2 inch drive then?

    Home CCTV advice

    Hi mustang86 Looking at the specs I see that the operating system is Embedded linux OS and it has a USB connection. ie: Backup:USB backup You would need a Hard Drive in an external with a USB connection and I would say a size of 1TB which would usually come formatted as NFTS. As the operating system is Embedded Linux I am not sure how it would see the hard drive once it is plugged in without seeing what is in the manual about a drive drive. Its over ten years since I dabbled with a Linux OS.

    There may be a problem in installing a hard drive as some of these systems do not use NFTS or a version of FATxx, just like Sky or Freeview boxes they may use a system particular to that companies CCTV

    Ignition

    If the year in your profile is right, 2003, it probably deserves a new set of leads and a coil pack
