take yours to the dealer for the shudder, you sounded just like me. Mine is as smooth as butter all the time now!! Got my Tuxedo black in January and haven't stopped doing something to it every month. All that left is to lower, some Avant Garde wheels, and Zetec grills, and I'll be even more happier with it

element4all Mine just hit the 10,000+ mark this weekend. So today I gave her a good wash, vacuuming, and cleaned the air filter.

Elizabeth I am 'cleaning out' the stuff in my 2012 Se as I get ready to take delivery within a few weeks of my ordered 2014 Focus ST.

On the SE I took off the wheel locks, the aftermarket air filter and the ST intake velocity stack. Took a pile of junk out of the trunk.
I plan on getting different plates for this car in a few days, so I have newly numbered plates for the ST (I am transferring the old registration to save some on the yearly registration fee)
Still have not decided whether to ask them to leave off the front license plate gizmo? Front is required in Wisconsin, ('forward facing' is the law, not that it must be on front bumper) but on my SVT i had the front plate inside the windshield up where the passenger sunshade is, for 13 years and never any problem. The ST sure looks better without the ugly license plate in the middle of it. (when I get the new plate I can check how and if the plate will fiit into the passenger side upper windshield. As the glass on the ST is identical in shape etc as my current SE... I may need to clean off some of the black dotted stuff around the rear view mirror?)

The ST was built last week. So in a few more weeks it should be delivered.
I like my SE a lot. Only can hope the ST is as trouble free!

Tonight another little old lady was walking through the garage. In passing she mentioned to me that she was suprised a woman owned 'that sportscar'
Wait until she sees the front of the ST poking out of my space! (I always park in my space with the car facing 'out' not in.) The neighbors are always nosy, and I wonder if i should make a placard mentioning "This one can go over 150 mph" LOL

TMLTITAN I had my car windows tinted yesterday. 20% save the windshield. Woohoo love the car even more now.

frizz Let me preach on it. This is the most comfortable car that I have had that can achieve these kind of MPG numbers. The fact that it also has this kind of perform also is remarkable.

I also like the fact the car can have the AC on and it does not seem to affect the MPGs at all.!!

JimsterG There are many things I like about my Focus after 2 years. There is the quiet ride and great handling. But when it comes to my wallet my favorite thing is the 6 speed DCT. I get incredible mileage on the freeway doing 75-80 mph with the AC on. The top gear really keeps the RPM's low and on a long trip I can go over 400 miles before needing gas. And the car looks great too!

Same here, I have seen a couple of Sedans and I think just a fleeting glance of of another PB hatch just one time. I do see a ST quite often as he lives in the neighborhood.

I do agree with still thinking the Focus looks really good when seeing them on the road, even when its too far away to make out what it is at first glance, i will say to myself what a good looking car that is only to find its a Focus.
