Can you also clarify:
1) How many miles did the OEM tires last?
2) Any other major repair items on any of the 3 Foci besides the hub you mentioned?
3) Any sign of the clutches wearing out in your DCT?
Thanks for sharing, it gives us the warm and fuzzies.

OOPS, sorry for a misleading statement, the car was bought by my company in Sept 2011,(2012 model year) They actually bought 3 white Focus's with in 3 months, as we have logo's that go on the side.
Yes, it needs snows but they are not going to spend the $$$ outfitting all the cars. We did have a Toyota Matrix with awd, that was a good car in the snow. Switching tires on various cars that are on the road every day would be a nightmare.
No way should Ford be having trans issue's with out some solution, other than reprograming. MJEFF
I can say that the engine in this car has good power and good economy. I have been in touch with the shop that services my car, trying to keep up with future maintenance items. I believe this car has a chain for the timing instead of the rubber belt.
Most of our current cars have 180+ and thus we are replacing them with new Fords.

|vegachicago||For reasons unknown, the marbles in a tin can shifting went away at 7,000 miles with a mix of city and highway. Got a rattle underneath the car but I don't think it's the trans. Shifts smoothly without all the past problems of slipping, shudder, or ill timed shifts. Weird but I'm not complaining. Had the last 12b something update about 12 months ago.|
