Anyway, the car is at the dealer today so we'll see what they say.
This clutch controversy has my interest. I will appreciate it if you are able to direct me t sites where I can learn more about this issue. I have been unsuccessful in my search for information. I 'm not interested in comments made in this forum. I would rather see expert opinions. I have less than 6000 miles on my Focus and no problems. I want to know if I have something to worry about down the road.
