Bought in mid August and now have 3,300 miles. Trips back and forth to work are a pleasure in my 2014 Focus.

RonMaiden 20,400 right at 2 and a half years on the road. The 4Runner will see more miles now that the white stuff has been flying here in Colorado.

Pretty much the same here.

Problems that left me stranded:
  • None

Major Problems:
  • MFT (It's been great for well over a year, but the first year was horrible. Constant freezes/restarts/driving with a black screen...)
  • Countless shifting issues (temporarily) fixed with the new clutch kit and seal
Things that are unnerving but the dealer won't admit there are issues:
  • All 4 wheel bearings failed (I've resorted to replacing them myself)
  • Transmission scraping noise (I'm assuming it's a bad output shaft as the Fiesta has a TSB for this and I don't know why it wouldn't apply to the Focus)
Minor Problems:
  • Headliner had to be replaced due to stains (I fixed the rattles myself
  • Coolant gunk/slow leak (finally found a loose clamp that the dealer couldn't)
  • Paint chips (not that it matters when my car gets sideswiped)
  • Occasional suspension creak/clunks
  • Seat click/rattle
  • Doors/speaker rattles
  • Rain water sitting/freezing in between the door seals
  • Loose ground to TCM
Mine have all been enjoyable please don't hijack this thread with pointless bickering about how your DCT sucks. Thats not the point. Let's stop now before I have to get a mod in here.
