Had the update
First post as a member...
I found this forum after I purchased my 2012 Focus Titanium sedan last week and the dealer notified me of a software update.
On my way home...i noticed that my tranny went from shifting very smooth to lurching between 1st and 2nd. I called the dealer and he said "give it time to relearn your driving habits." This isn't the first Ford i've had transmission updates on...so I calmed down and went for a drive.
Happy to report it is shifting smoothly again. Shudder at take off seems non-existent now. But i did notice it seems to grab the highest gear as quickly as it can. Might be an increased fuel econ measure?
Either way...i'm good now. 8-)
Nice to find this site too!
