|kevingsx||Hi I have just brought a 2012 automatic focus it has done 18500 mile with previous owner. It is shuddering every time I pull away even worse on hills I am really worried my dealer will spout a load of rubbish about this being normal the worse driving experience I have ever had. and the most expensive car I have ever brought.|

Is This the End?
My 2012 keeps having serious issues... IT KEEPS DYING.. according to Ford my fuel pump keeps sucking my gas tank into itself and the FUEL SYSTEM need replacing($2300). It Died in front of an oncoming bus.
Today I replaced the lower control arm on the driver side ($245).. a major suspension issue.
Tonight on my drive home it died at a light and when I pulled up to the house leaving a coaster sized oil spot on the ground beneath it... I popped the hood and it looked like a crime scene.. oil everywhere!
I have been in contact with FORD and they basically said I'm SOL... had I been under 5yr/60,000mi (It's 2yrs 69,xxxmi) they would have taken care of it... but I'm SOL.
case number: 5533391

|stanley79||Has anyone had their rear window shatter/exploded out of no where. I own a 2012 titanium focus. In the middle of my morning work commute on the freeway my rear window basically just shattered. I found no damage anywhere to the body near the hatchback and the window had no previous damage|

Ford Program 14M01 is for the extended warranty 7years/100k miles not a recall
and again is up to the dealer to diag the tranny before doing any work.
Hope everything goes well with you at the stealer!!

I drove it like an fairly aggressive the first few days to help it learn, and to scuff up the clutch plates. It seemed pretty good. At the end of 2 weeks of still fairly aggressive driving, its starting to have issues again. I knew it.
I watched the video of the "Ford" guy doing pulls from a complete stop, so I tried that a few times. No difference.
Hmmm, how should I complete the survey the dealer sent me????

There still no recall for this car, what we have is an extended warranty to 100k and it all depends what the dealer says.
Most dealers don't want come close to touching this car

|StressedEnough||Bought my used 2012 Focus SEL from Enterprise Rent-a-Car. Probably should have done more research, but my old vehicle was unexpectedly declared undriveable, so I needed something immediately; the rental fees were climbing. Noticed the funky transmission -- hesitant starts, jackrabbit acceleration up hills -- from the beginning but was told that was normal; the car would adjust to my way of driving. (Having already been on the road for 36,000 miles, I think it got used to somebody else.) Also experienced the rollback, on flat ground as well as hills, but the solution is to press the brake all the way down when stopped (I have a tendency to push the pedal only halfway). After a year, the car started shuddering in reverse, so I read many online forums and was becoming more upset by the day until finally, this recall was announced. Am thankful that special coverage has been extended, because my bills (just moved and the "new" house needs work) have been through the roof (no pun intended). Am hoping the official repair next week will solve the problem and not make it worse. There are pros and cons to buying new vs. used, but that's another discussion.|

According to the service writer, they replaced the seals, cleaned "everything", re-flashed and did the adaptive learning procedure...everything is good to go. I truly hope it is, but I have a feeling I will be taking it back tomorrow. Its been taking 2 days to start acting up after a re-flash.
