There are times where the transmission just seems to have a dead spot, I really have to move the accelerator pedal near the floor to get a response. It's starting to scare me with my children in the car.
Have you taken your Focus in to the dealer for diagnosis? They will be best able to ease your worries. Please PM me with your VIN, contact information, mileage, & servicing dealer name/state and I will assist.
