I've had no major issues with either of my Foci from the Michigan Assembly plant, however the basic SEL did have a bit more issue with vibration under 32 F.
The car is still the same, and the engine is still coming from Michigan for the 2.0 L GDI Ti-VCT as this is the only plant in the world that Ford is currently building that engine at least from what I recall.
In the U.S. no Focus S/SE/Ti comes with the engine cover anymore, only the Focus ST has an engine cover since 5/16/2011.
Ok! I didn't know the engine was made in Michigan, but it doesn't have the FlexFuel option. My 2013 it does. This 2014 it doesn't.
