For you new posters in this thread.
Please limit your posts to this thread to any problem you have with the vehicle, like the one above me, or problems with your dealer's service. Technical Chat is for technical discussions relating to general maintenance, electrical issues, engine trouble, and recalls. That's the topic for this thread. I know some people feel that the car is getting a "bad rap" due to problems of some owners, but this isn't the place to laud the 2012. All that ends up happening is that people who are already frustrated with a malfunctioning vehicle are further upset by other members who post "Well there's nothing wrong with my car."
We do have a discussion forum specifically for threads on any topic about the 2012 Focus. It's simply called "Third Generation Focus Discussions"
, and you'll find it in the non-performance discussions under Affiliate Vendors. Go and check it out, and I'm sure you'll learn something.
Thanks for posting! Enjoy the site, and please treat other members the way that you would want to be treated.
