*update*

2 days later and a couple of hundred miles and its night and day (12.01.04). When getting onto the highway it holds the gear while i accelerate, from a stop the launch is superb. Kicking it down to pass also works great.

Why in the world hasn't Ford management issued this as a recall (or other communication) for all of us with the pre-August build? Or issue it as an update to anyone who brings their Focus in for service?

The president of the company states in an interview that the transmission problem has been fixed (late November I think) but they don't communicate down? I really don't get it.

Anyway, nice improvement Ford. I (and I'll speak for most if not all of us here) thank you for making this car into what I thought it was when I drove it off the lot.

Now for my MFT issue......
