If it does end up coming back I'm resolved to believing that it's simply a "soft chassis" issue with too much give in the tower structure and Ford knows about it, which no amount of ancillary bracing or stiffening to reduce slop will ever truly remedy.
Uni-body tech - Oh Brother!
Offing the car would then be the only real remedy...

I bought American, and Ford because of their so-called quality track-record, to get away from the European BS (VW). I had a sneaking suspicion that if Ford didn't follow-up with you with any real technical interest it would go the way of the bureaucracy. The "Ford Ideas" pivot was pretty telling. If all this social-media CS dancing in Focus Fanatics ends up being "for not", it will really be a tipping point and I personally won't be going quietly...
