Just got my FocusTI 2012 and am loving the car. Same issues as a lot of people with MFT though, and I have to tell you I'm very appreciative of this forum. It's made the coping process a lot easier :D.
So here's the deal: 2012 FocusTI manufactured in March 2011.
MFT oddities are all in line with what the majority of people seem to be experiencing here.
Thanks to the wealth of information from you guys here I was actually able to advise my service advisor! I told him I applied the usb updates with no luck, and that i should bring it in to him so they could apply whatever updates they had before I took it back out on the road, experienced more of the same problems, and eventually brought it back in to have the APIM replaced :P. At the time he laughed.
Suffice it to say my new APIM is now on order and the car will be going back into the shop early January :).
I was also able to get them to apply the latest TSB as well while it was originally in the shop (sorry forget what TSB stands for).
Anywhoo.. enjoying my journey with the rest of you...
