Rough idle


We just bought a 2012 Ford Focus and the first thing I noticed was it seemed to bog down upon initial acceleration, just enough to make you glad
your not at a railroad crossing and it might die! I hate to take it to a dealer because I am of the belief the fewer monkies that put a wrench on the your
car the longer it will last. Nothing ever goes back in the box the way it was before you took it out. I guess I'll look for the technical data and see if there is something as simple as an idle screw that I can turn a click up amd see if it fixes the problem. Don't know if there is a recall or not. I like the car and am waiting for the turbo model st next year.
