I have a 2012 Ford Focus, ID #1FAHP3K20CL174979 that I purchased on Aug 2nd 2011. I have had it back in the shop twice, once at Rancho Ford in Temecula and once at Vista Ford in Vista where I purchased the vehicle. I'm concerned about the transmission because it stalls when you start out and falls on its face. I do not like to drive the car because I'm not sure it will not stall and cause an accident. I took a road test with the Sales Manager (Pat) at Vista Ford with another 2012 Ford Focus, same model and it did not act like mine. Pat has ask me to bring it in and they will hopefully take care of the problem. I will drop it off next week (Nov 4 or 5 and leave it with them until it is corrected. I have a 2007 Ford Focus that I love but I'm not happy with the performance of the 2012 at this time. I'm hopeful this will be corrected but will not drive the car as it handles today.
