C'mon now; I like everyone! [wink] These forums are a great outlet and communication medium. I'll assist owners with their issues in any way possible.

I drove it a couple of weeks ago and noticed "the shudder" - the "weird feel" she talked about. I called the service department at the Ford dealership and the service manager said he'd never heard of a Focus having that problem....but to bring it in and they would look at it. Now they are removing the transmission to replace a couple of leaking seals. Seems fluid is leaking on the dual clutch mechanism causing them to slip and "shudder". The car should be ready in a few days. Luckily, according to the service manager, they can get the parts they need - he said they had been on back-order. I'm just glad they figured it out and didn't put me off.

I don't have a comfortable feeling about sending my daughter back out on the road to school (several hours away) in this Focus...
Congrats on your recent Focus purchase! The dealership will take extra care of your ride to make sure it's set for your daughter. Please PM me your VIN, mileage, contact info, and dealer city/state; I'll forward these details to your region's Customer Service Manager.

THANK YOU FORD FOR YOUR JUNK PRODUCT AND HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE. ILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER FORD PRODUCT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We never like to lose a valued customer. Customer safety is a top priority; I wish you all the best.
