All issues are now gone. Hope this helps others in their dealings with their dealership.
By the way, this is a GREAT thread that you started. Details such as your service order I think is the kind of useful thread that benefits everyone. As of today, my car has just under 800 miles on it. I began experiencing some of the same issues already that many Focus owners have complained about. I will be taking my car in at 1,000 miles to have this issue looked at. You can bet I will print out your service record and take it to the dealership with me. I find sometimes the service writers and the mechanics benefit from knowing what issues other people are experiencing and where to begin looking.

Thanks for sharing this.
