Hi - First post, been lurking a while. I got my SEL in June 2011. It now has 37,000 miles. I haven't had a single glitch or problem since the day I got the car. I love it. Once in a great while I get in a situation where the DCT isn't as nimble as a true automatic and I wish it were in a different gear. But very rarely. My commute is 65 miles a day through city streets and over a mountain. The Focus has been a great performer for me. It flies up the mountain and carves the turns. Amazing. This sunday I took a 200 mile trip to see my son and got 32 mpg going 75 MPH on the Thruway. YMMV

I have also been pretty much problem free with my 5/7/12 build date Ti HB in Sonic Blue. I did have to replace the windshield due to it being cracked from a stone kicked up be a passing SUV but other than that no issues with DCT or MFT with NAV. I have about 14,500 miles on it since picking up on 5/25/12.

I have not been able to tell whether Ford has come up with a permanent solution for that one. One guy (zillon) even tore into it himself trying to identify the cause, rather than waiting on Ford (dealer or corporate) to do it. I thought sure he was going to solve the mystery, but it didn't work out that way.

7k miles on my 2012 job 2 SEL. Love the car. a parking valet commented that my car "lagged" on take-offs but that's a characteristic of the DCT that has never bothered me nor do i notice anymore. love the MFT but i only use it for phone and music.
the 10-speaker sony system is the first car audio system in the last five or six vehicles that i will leave stock. i think it's great.
i've done three 700-mile road trips and the focus is great on all terrains. we're taking it to yellowstone in june and i figure i'll drive close to 3k miles.
my only complaint is there's a rattle i can't locate. but i figure there has to be some reminder that i'm not driving a toyota .

|RonMaiden||I'm at the opposite end as I'm at 6300miles in the first 8 months and by a year it should still be under 9000 and only had a hiccup at 96 miles from bad bearings on the AC compressor.|

|xpeterbilt387x||My 05/2011 built SEL has been pretty well problem free! Other than the updates to the DCT. Rear window defroster didn't work very well, and the steering wheel Peeling issue (both fixed by Dealer) I've only been in for general Maintenance stuff. Its at 25.8k miles right now and runs perfect. Just needs new Tires, BAD :(|

I must say, my '12 Focus S with 01-12 build date with 16625 miles has had very minimal issues, one was a bad valet key and the other was a software update with the 5spd.
Otherwise, no issues like most others are experiencing. I am otherwise happy with what the car is and has to offer.
