There is a thread about my story : 2 Brand New 2012 Focus SE Sedan in 2 Months (1st one bought back by dealer)
Give the Dealer a chance to fix your car and keep as much documentation as you can. Most likely they will offer you a loaner and will try to solve your problems.

Best of luck

Of course I hope the issue can just be fixed but I always like to have some sort of backup plan for things and a buyback is that plan. I don't mind taking it to the dealer but I have to drive an hour to get to the one that offers a loaner because the other one only offers a shitty shuttle service that only travels 7 miles from the dealership plus they are some of the rudest people I have met. Very unprofessional for the amount of business they get. I guess when you are the only Ford dealer in that area you don't have to try hard. I read your thread and its really ironic because I have a terrible dash rattle as well . The Focus has the potential to be a great car! Mine is just not an example of that right now but hopefully some resolution will take place. If my dealer eventually offers a swap out because of not being able to fix that I will take that ! But if I have to go through the entire lemon law process I will definitely not be going with Ford at all just because of them making me do that. Ugh why can't Apple just make the iCar sine I know that would work right and be great.
