I bought a 2012 Focus Titanium Hatchback with the 18" wheels about a month ago. I love the car, except for the steering. At first, like many people here, I thought I just needed to get used to a new car... I have an appointment at the dealer tomorrow, and I already feel like they are going to tell me nothing is wrong. Wish me luck.

Hopefully this fixes my car. I miss my Focus!
Hi LackofFocus,

Ohhh...those Focus withdrawals must be excruciating! Not to worry you'll soon be cruising town in no time.

Continue working with your dealer, and shoot me a PM if you need my assistance.

BTW - Congrats on the Focus!

Your exhortations are appreciated; keep them coming!

Take care!
