+ all 4 doors AND hatch alignment out of spec
+ squeaking driver seat
+ all 4 front a/c vents rattling
+ something up in the sunglass holder rattling
+ audio would randomly turn off and refuse to turn back on...then randomly come back a few drive cycles later
+ driver window screech when going up or down
+ bad/whining alternator bearing
+ some grass or some sort of trash literally in the paint on the lower left rear qtr
+ 3 different rust spots bubbling up under the paint
+ speaking of shiat paint job, had more minor sand knicks etc in the first few days then my previous car had in almost 4yrs, and by 2 months had more then my 12yo truck!
Just absolutely horrendous for a new car in such a short span. A freekin Yugo would probably have held together better in that short amount of time! Obviously many people's cars are fine, especially barring any transmission/drivetrain complaints, but not mine! Mine was horrible! Best thing I ever did with it was got rid of the POS.

I have the taillight scratching the paint on the drivers side of my 12.
Unfortunately no more warranty though..

I can arrange for a follow-up call from your regional customer service manager (CSM) if you have questions about the decision made in your case. If you'd like me to proceed, send me a PM with your current mileage and I'll make it happen.

You're definitely not alone on this...

|1slofofo||I know a few people have mentioned that the tail lamps rubbed with the body (hatchback). I haven't had such severe issues, but I do think the paint is weak. My dad's 2008 Escape has less rock chips in the 80k he's had it than my '12 in the 20k I've had it.|

2012 Focus Hatch paint issue
Anyone else experiencing spots of cracking/flaking paint on the rear spoiler of their 2012 Focus hatchback? We have 3 spots on our Focus that are cracking and the paint is flaking off. Car is still under warranty but Ford wants to charge me $100 to fix the problems. Even my dealer was dumbfounded.

Descriptions noted. Touched up paint damage and 'business card test' accomplished.
Didn't sand much off of area indicated. Be sure to sand in the same direction as the beveled angle on the back side. It helps keep the shape of the curves and looks good from the outside.
P.S. I had an appointment at the dealer body shop today to have it fixed but I decided I could do it avoid the stress.
Crystal (here), Jeff (rep) and Carl at the dealer body shop were helpful. I'm sure the job done would have been adequate. (just not as good as mine.. )
