On my 5MT I'm getting 38mpg on the highway at 70-75, over 40 with cruise set at 65. Do wish it had better ratios though; turns a little quick at highway speeds! Kinda wish it was like the old days where you could just swap a rear end.
Love it though! Great shifting/feeling manual transmission, sporty, comfortable, quiet.

The service managers suggestion was to call the better business bureau and start a claim to get Ford to buy the car back. He's not sure they can fix the problem. And he thinks they have more than enough pages and repeat service trips to warrant car replacement. ugh.

|aptech77||After seeing that original post, I asked my dealer about SSM 32331 to which they had no idea what I was talking about. They did however supposedly check for loose grounds, and found there wasn't any problems. Now I wounder if they really checked it.....hummm.|

on my car, the loose connection was G-104 ( a ground) the service bulletin was reported by the dealer to be SSM 32331.
the story is way back in the thread. if you search on G104, you may be further enlightened.

According to Ford the car does shut the cruise off on ice... I know that and it shuts off and stays off. The concern I have is my car slows down and rapidly accelerates again on its own. No ice or traction control light.
Hopefully they find something. I really hate trips to the dealer with no answers.

Just wanted to post an update on my 2014 Ford Focus Titanium. I originally complained about the shifting and tranny noises. I had the most recent TSB applied (replaced the clutch seals that weren't leaking and applied the most recent software fix). It drove great and shifted better for 500 miles and then the noises came back. I took it back and the tranny guy said the noises were "normal".
Then came winter and lower temps. The noises went away. Many have commented on this and I read a hypothesis that it is a viscosity related change. I fully expect the noises to come back in the Spring when temps go back up.
I will say that the car is currently giving me no troubles. I did have to get a set of all-season tires (Pirelli P6 Four Seasons Plus: http://www.pirelli.com/tire/us/en/ca...sons_plus.html ) as the Titanium Handling Package came with "Summer only tires" and they could not be driven on snow.
So, I'm driving it. It works well, no noises, shifts fine, no shudders, no new issues. When the noises come back in the spring, I'll do what the tranny guy said and "Turn up the stereo." I won't be buying it at lease end. I won't be getting another DCT transmission from Ford. Also, I found out I prefer a bigger car (like my old Toyota Avalon) that got 24/31 mpg to a smaller car that gets 27/37 mpg. The average cost savings per year at gas prices of $3.25 and 15K-20K miles of use is only $400-$450 per year. The cost of an iPad...
