Some recent models of the Ford Focus have an added feature -- an external temperature display that shows you what the temperature is outside your Ford Focus. Though this is an uncommon feature, when you own a Ford Focus that has it, you want to use it. However, how to use the display is not always explained in owner manuals well and is not necessarily intuitive for all users. The external temperature display is easy to use, and involves pressing only one button.
