The rough idle condition was not addressed by the dealer with the claim that is normal for the Focus model. The car idled smooth when I bought it with 14,000 miles on it and the rough idle developed at around 25,000 miles, therefore, it is not normal for this car. The car was taken to the dealer for those two issues in July, 2012.

Now the HVAC system has failed with symptoms similar to those decribed in the posts above. The 3/36 warranty expired at the end of August, 2012. I know the amount of labor involved to remove the HVAC box from a car. Will Ford cover this issue?

Hi RussH,

Since you are out of your warranty period, it isn't likely that this repair would be covered by Ford. I would advise that you either contact your dealership or the Customer Relationship Center to get a definitive answer. The CRC can be reached at 1-800-392-3673.
