middie8, fishin-nole, Kabigon, & InfinityCubed,

My name is Cory, and Iím the new Ford Service rep on these boards. Iím checking in to see if you took your Focus to the dealer yet. I can help by escalating this up to your regionís customer service manager. For me to lend a hand, please send a PM with your contact info (including your full name, daytime phone number, approximate mileage, dealer name/state, and VIN).

Itís important to me that your concerns are taken care of, Ysteven. I see you worked with Crystal before. I have your VIN from previous messages, so please donít hesitate to drop me a line via PM and Iíll set up a follow-up call.

Thanks for the recommendation; I forwarded your kind words. :)
