I bought a 2012 Ford Focus after reading that is "towable" as published in the FMCA magazine. I was not that much enthused when reading that the negative battery lead must be disconnected prior to towing, but thought that should not dissuade me from buying an American made economy car. I am probably guilty of not doing a "complete" due diligence. After getting ready to install a Blue Ox base plate, I discover that it requires almost major surgery to detach the negative lead, let alone re-attaching it.
Has anyone here towed a 2012 Ford Focus? What have you done to ease the disconnect/reconnect procedure? What modifications would you suggest to make it easier?
Thanks for your input.
