Here's the thing. I purchased a used 2012 Ford Focus SE about 3 weeks ago, and it has approximately 34000 miles (or in Canada about 51000kms.) I have felt the same "shudder" on take off and it does "feel" like it will stall while at at stop sign or traffic light. It has never stalled however, but, you feel like it will. I took it to the dealer and they said everything was "normal" and they couldn't "duplicate" the issue. Well, I'm not an idiot, I have owned about 13 cars, so, I know the difference between a shudder and not. I was also given that 3 page document, but, told them that document was to be given to "new" customers, I have 36000 miles so, I'm pretty sure it's broken in. Was there ever a TSB on this? Thanks to all
