My 2013 Ford Focus is the first "new" car I have ever purchased. Thus far, I regret making that purchase.

I bought the vehicle on 6/9/2012 and have it back to the dealer for repairs several times; 11/13/2012 the engine light came on and the engine spit and spuddered, 1/21/2013 when the transmission jerked, surged and made grinding sounds, and 1/26/2013 and again on 1/21/2013 because the vehicle would not start. I'll will be taking it back to the dealer tomorrow (3/29/2013) because once again the transmission is not shifting properly and making grinding sounds.

I am at my wits end with this vehicle and have initated a lemon law complaint through the Better Business Bureau. I don't want to pursue a lemon law claim. I would much rather have what I thought I bought; a new car that requires normal maintanence, not a clunker that consistantly needs repairs. Please help.
