I'd like to loop in your regional customer service manager, who is in the best position to assist with this concern. Please send me a PM with your full name, best daytime phone number, VIN, and servicing dealership.

Hey guys I have 95K on my 2012 SEL. I have had the shudder issue and a bucking problem as well. What TSB's are out there? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

What was the issues?
I've had my 2012 updated and at least it accelerates when needed but has what feels like the transmission shuddering.
Dealer says it's normal.
32K miles as of today.
I don't believe that for one second.
Any help is greatly appreciated!

My 82 year old mother has a 2012 focus se sport with these tranny problems, the reboot did nothing. The parts are on backorder now for over 6 weeks. Spoke with the service rep, they mentioned that they have 18 cars waiting for parts at there dealership.
So the car sits in my driveway waiting as this has become a Safety issue with no parts in sight. Been told it has been over 3 months for others waiting for parts. Ford is ignoring a very serious safety issue with this transmission!!

I want to like my Focus
I found this website while searching for solutions to the problems I've been experiencing with my 2012 Focus.
As my car sits lifeless on my street I'll go into the problems (that I can think of off the top of my head) that I've been experiencing.
Like many other people, my car does the "grinding noise" when accelerating at low RPMs and also shutters quite badly when in stop-and-go traffic. I've heard about the whole "breaking-in period" but now that my car has almost 30,000km, I think I'm stuck with that issue for now.
The next issue is one of the most annoying. The driver's side vents blow hot air most of the time. It doesn't matter if the air conditioning is on or off or if the driver's side climate control is on hot or cold. The passenger side works just fine, though. I can sometimes fix the problem if I stop the car, turn it off and back on again. I had the car in for three days while they took the entire dash apart to replace a small A/C part. It did not fix the problem. What they told me was that they would have to RE-replace the part. That tiny part has been on backorder for about five months now.
And now to explain why my car is sitting lifeless on my street. Driving home the other night the gas light came on - not too out of the ordinary. The display read something like "60km until empty" about a minute later it said "50km until empty", then 49, 48... I was able to watch it count down. Was there a leak in my tank? Then my radio stopped working. An error message came up on the screen saying "911 Assist is not operational. Please visit your dealer for". My radio/ My Ford Touch has stopped working before but it came back on within a few minutes. Anyway, I just made it home with a few km to spare. I looked everywhere for a sign of a fuel leak but could not find anything. The next day I went to start it but the battery was dead. After jump starting it I drove it around the neighborhood and parked it. Next day, same thing. Battery was dead.
Has anyone experienced this problem before? Hopefully I'll be able to jump it again tomorrow to bring into the dealer.
Other issues include the clock freezing on a certain time, then jumping forward to the correct time, bluetooth connection issues, and playing the first 30 seconds of a song off of my iphone, then skipping to the next automatically.
Sorry for the rant. I'm just not stoked after cancelling my plans this weekend due to lack of car. I really want to like this car!
