You will have to wait until you get 10,000 miles on the car and then if it hasn't reduced the shake then wait another 5 yr 50,000 miles until the warranty is over that way we are not responsible for fixing it and then we will gladly charge you $10,000 to fix a issue that never existed.

That's pretty much what I thought.I just want Ford to close the stupid TSB and work order,so I can sell it without getting sued.Apparently Ford can do it ,but not me! I expect losing between 4 and 7 thousand dollars from this adventure.The only way I can limit the damages,will be to buy a boring car like a brand new Corolla,that will be trouble free for the next 10 years.I normally don't keep a car more than 3 years,but considering how much I lost with this Focus,I don't see any other way out.
