I bought my 2012 Focus SE Hatch in February and it has now overheated 3 times. The heat also only work intermittently, which I am just learning now that the weather is getting cool again. It has 21000 miles on it and the first time it overheated was around 18k.
I love my car and I am very disappointed that this is happening. It has been to the dealer once already and they told me there is nothing wrong with it. They told me I probably ran over something that punctured the coolant line but were unable to detect a leak. I was pretty disappointed to be told it was my fault and nothing they could do.
I have an appointment on Monday for it again. I will probably take it there today though and demand a loaner car because I have to make a 6 hour round trip tomorrow and don't trust my brand-new car :(
