or are more tolerant (read ignorant) of the types of problems inherent in the 2012 Focus, but I guarantee you they are having the same issues.
That's bordering on being the stupidist statement I have ever read, even for the internet. Our Feb 2012 built Ti hatchback with mytouch and dct hasn't had any of the problems that a few have. We had one issue with the display not showing the station presets but was fixed with the software update.
Of course I've only been driving for 42 years, and have owned everything from BMW 1602's to Land Rovers. So maybe that makes me ignorant.
