20K Miles Update

Just had my 2012 serviced at 20K miles. Still running great, but I got some bad news from my service dept. I always ask about how the Focus Tranny issues are going when I visit. This time the manager told me they changed out 3 Trannys that week. And they are averaging 1 to 3 every week! I told him that so far mine has been great and I'm at 20,000 miles so I felt like I am "out of the woods". Then he went and burst my bubble when he said one of the 3 they had just changed had 34,000 miles on it, and had been running fine until then. Now I feel like I am sitting on a ticking time bomb Please Ford, find a fix, issue a recall, and let's get on with driving happy again!

Thanks to all of you who have been posting such useful info. I hope to be half as helpful as some of y'all have been!
