I'll try another dealer...another rack.

The 12B37 update has nothing to do with the steering. It sounds like they need to perform the Steering TSB and alignment. Get it done and enjoy the car!

Is that your second dealer as well?...
I'm wondering if I'll have any problem getting the TSB done twice in the same car. Please keep us informed!... Unfortunately I won't be able to take the car to another dealer this week.

How is it worse? If it is worse, perhaps they did not do it correctly. Go back and explain in detail.

Suggest folks view this comment (originally from Altis) and commented-on / speculated-on by me. I hope I am wrong.... posts no. 5 and no. 9, respectively... http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=289257

Well, the dealer told me on Thursday that new steering gears are on basically indefinite backorder. Awesome. Meanwhile, I drove this thing 100 miles on the freeway today and it's just flat unpleasant to drive. Glad I bought a new car.
