I'm Ford's friendly customer service rep on the forum.
I'll be happy to escalate the steering issue to the Customer Service Manager for your area. Please send me a PM me with your VIN, dealer, mileage, full name, and best daytime number to begin the process.

I'm very happy with the service department at Groove Ford in Centennial, CO. They listened to me and were open minded, and the manager of the service department personally drove my car to verify the problem.
The moral of the story? If you have a 2012 Focus and are fighting the steering at all, take it into the dealer, because something is wrong.
This is a great update and accolade, LackofFocus! I'm sure your fellow posters will take your advice.
