I'm glad they are working to resolve your steering issue.

Hey cardoc1,

Ouch, sorry it was so tough on your trip. Glad it's easier now, though. Please PM me your VIN, contact information, mileage, & servicing dealer name/state and I'll assist.

I replied to your PM, and I'm happy your parts arrived and your Focus is taken care of.

Please keep me updated. My offer of escalation is still available if you need me.

If you are in the San Diego area Pearson Ford in Kearny Mesa has the nicest front end service department I've been in. I will hopefully get my car back today. I'll report back in a couple of weeks to let you guys know if the issue is resolved.
Thanks for the great update! I'm happy to help.
