Hi Beepster,

Just saw this post, but I did reply on your other thread. I'm glad your dealer is working on a solution for your issue!

While I anticipate a reflash for the transmission being issued by Ford within the next few months, my big beef with Ford is that it seems that most salesman don't have any idea of how this transmission works, and as such, they can't explain what to expect to their customers. And if that's the case, then Ford is wasting thousands of man hours in dealing with this "non-issue."

Also, it seems incredible that Ford is telling people to expect a 10,000-mile break-in period for the transmission. That bit of information should also be conveyed to the prospective customer prior to making the sale.
Hi jsmichael,

Thanks for being a repeat Focus owner! I'm thrilled to read of your positive feedback on the 2012 Focus. We are improving dealer/customer communication regarding our PowerShift transmission so customers are familiar with the different sounds and sensations that are part of this new system. The dealers are reviewing concerns on a case-by-case basis to ensure that it is one that will smooth out, as many have experienced. If you are worried, please PM me with your VIN, contact information, mileage, & servicing dealer name/state so I can help. Have a great evening!
