Purchased my 2012 Focus S less than 2 weeks ago. My build date is 7/22/12. The last day 2012s came off the assembly line. The trans was a little clunky, but it has calmed down dramatically since I put 1100 miles on the car. So far I've put in cruise control, auto lights, an armrest, and a K&N filter in my car.
I love this car! Gets great gas mileage, handles curves like a sports car, and looks great. This is the first Ford I've owned and I've had many cars. I hope this car will last me a long time.
