suv bilder Tell the dealer to look at the flywheel.... had a similar issue and after 10 mos of refusing to go away... they finally got serious. Found the flywheel wss underbalanced.... replaced the flywheel with the upgraded unit now available In the 2014 focus.

GET THE DEALER TO REPLACE THE FLYWHEEL.... IT IS THE UNDERLYING PROBLEM.!!!!!!!

Focus SEL Standard 2012 Vibration

I have a vibration issue as well. Started at about 20,000 Km.

Dealer replaced an engine mount, but problem still there. Dealer says on hoist, vibration occurs between 20k and 25K revs. I get it all the time when driving. Around town, it is barely tolerable, but once on the highway, the vibration moves up from the steering wheel into my arms and up from the pedals and the floor to my legs and after about 10 minutes it feels like my whole body is vibrating. Also starting to hear some squeaks and rattles that were not there before. I guess any machine that vibrates constantly will eventually start to loosen up. I have a call into Ford Tech Centre and they are going to talk to the dealer. Should hear back next week and will let you know the results. The car is basically undriveable on the highway.

I don't agree with it because I have a manual transmission and mine vibrates at idle. I think it's a normal characteristic of the vehicle (I know how much we all hate hearing that). Mine's even a little worse now that I installed the focus electric rear motor mount. It's the most noticeable on cold start ups at idle. Once the car warms up it's not as bad but still there.

Yeah. Mine started doing this at the exact same time they replaced the throttle body. It idles lower with A/C off than it used to but it gets 3 mpg more to the gallon, so I just live with it. Living in the south the A/C is almost always on anyways, even in the winter (for Defrost).
