I too joined this forum in hopes to find solution to what seems to be a problem to many new Focus owners. I am also experiencing shuddering at first displacement and when I come to a halt. My car also has no guts when I try to pass another. When I hit the gas pedal to accelerate, it feels as though the car is choking and the gas doesn’t give. Eventually it picks up. It is very scary because I’m changing lanes to pass only to slow down. I’m not sure I want to try and pass again. I’ve test driven a Focus Titanium a few months ago and that car was awesome! I wish mine was the same. I know I have to brake it in and that I’ve only had it for a few days but I’m not excited about mine like I was with the one I’ve test driven. Like some, I do not feel safe driving this car. My Focus already had 513km logged on when I got it and I know this is all highway driving as the car came from a different city. I’ve only put 200km myself of mostly city driving. I will give it time and keep on reading on here. I hope it does get better.
