Hey... he's obviously very concerned. He made 6 posts in about 90 minutes, every single one using the word 'KILLED' in CAPITAL LETTERS. Most of his posts claim that Ford refuses to acknowledge the problem, even the ones in the thread where Natasha (FordCustomerService) has been both acknowledging the problem, and working with people to get it fixed. And usually, he doesn't even wait for a reply before posting the same general message again.

But I'm sure he's not being paid to post crap here.

Of course, I've been wrong before.

Curious, has anyone NOT experienced this highway lane drifting? Because I haven't really noticed it.

Hi, we've not experienced it in the UK and it seems also in the whole of Europe, as far as I know. I guess that doesn't count for much but I'm certain it makes the issue restricted to just you guys..

Mine is a fairly early build, I think March 20th or something. It had the 120 mile extra QA done on it as well prior to delivery, and I have not noticed any issue of lane drifting of any sort. 2012 Focus SEL 5-door. Holds position perfectly, no complaints in the 7000+ miles I have had it since I got it in May.

Well my car was at the dealer for about 1 week, in the end the got it right. I picked up the car on Wednesday and on Thrusday night I went to Prescott (80 mile one-way) and the car was just perfect. No issues with the steering no issues with MFT or anything for that matter. I've dealt with Sanderson Lincoln and their Ford dealer for the last 7 years for my service on my Ford & Lincoln and they have alway been pleaseure to deal with.

Folks, let's all realize that this steering issue thing is not happening on all of the cars. In fact, it may be a small % of cars.

The issue is real, but let's keep it in perspective. There is a TSB out on it, and the tightening procedure and bolt replacement of the rack bolts / subframe bolts also appears to be important.

Build 4/1/11 ... {Don't laugh} just completed annual drive from NY to Naples ~1600 miles average speed ~65 ... with a lot at 77 ... no noticeable problems. 750 miles in 11 hours one day.
Actually felt pretty good. this has to be some random influence at work here.
