I searched forum and goggled but it's really hard to read all pages of big threads about MFT and SYNC and several others regarding DCT
so please help me decide and make a correct choice.
I'm looking to buy used 2012 (I know most of issues have been fixed in 2013, but used 2013 are rare and much more expensive yet)
Focus with DCT, but I'm not sure of several things. Please advice what are your thoughts and opinions regarding the following issues:
1. When exactly Ford fixed DCT
issue - meaning starting from what date (month) of production should I look for a used Focus and how to check that date (VIN or else)? Are all cars affected and how to check it during test drive?
2. I would prefer Titanium, due to its intelligent access without a key, 17'' tires, rear view camera with rear/front park control, optional Navigation and winter package, BUT what about MFT - can it at least work with no issues with rear view camera and navigation or these have problems too, since they are used via MFT?
3. What about SYNC
- it has problems too? All I need is BT phone to be able to call and answer handsfree and play some songs via USB.
4. Will Ford continue to support/update MFT and SYNC untill most of bugs are fixed or we are already left alone?
P.S. I'm looking for a sedan (white, silver or grey) preferably Titanium, but can settle for SEL, SE or even S if you guys would advice me to do so. In this case I would fit car with aftermarket rear view camera, remote start, intelligent access key e.t.c. but it will be pain in the ars
