New guy

Hey,

I just picked up my 2012 Focus SE in Tuxedo black.

I had a 2011 Fiesta and ran into my fair share of problems before the dealer bought it back. I was working to get the lemon law enforced but luckily my dealer stepped up to the plate and took care of me.

Well enough of that. So far I am extremely pleased with this car. Only has 303 miles though. Looking to put some 5000k HIDs in as the first mod. Then it will be a spoiler. I hope this fourm turns out to be as helpful as my f150 forum.

It sucks you had so many issues with the Fiesta. I'm more inclined to go towards the Fiesta side myself. I really hope Ford gets its crap together and fixes all of the Fiesta's problems in the 2012 model year.

May I ask what was specifically wrong with the Fiesta? The two main issues I've heard of involved the PowerShift transmission and the weatherstripping coming off on the rear windows.

EDIT: If the above link doesn't work, it's because the forum's link redirector code is being wonky. I checked and double-checked the URL and it's correct.

Powershift was then cause of my issues. The Fiesta ate 3 of them. I think it was and PCM or sensor problem to take out three.

Sorry to hear that. Does the PowerShift on the Focus feel considerably better? I'm sure it uses updated software/sensors at the very least, since it came much later than the Fiesta. I'm kind of glad I didn't jump the gun and buy a Fiesta when they first came out. But I'm still hoping they'll fix these issues by the 2012 model year, because the car just looks (and drives) so damn fun. :-(
