100% confirmed, I just looked at the rear housing and checked the bulb and it is a bulb. Job 2 2012 Ford Focus SEL hatchback built 4/23/12. Has the four way head restraints but not the LED dome lamps.

Interesting... My SE was built 4/26/12, and has LEDs. I have the moonroof.

That wasn't strictly speaking true either, jdubhack's '13 Ti has a moon roof and as far as he knows it also has the incandescent bulbs in the housings, not the LEDs so there doesn't seem to be a clear cut case one way or the other.

Job 1 SEL, built June 2011, I have LEDs across the board. Seems like Ford can't make up their minds with equipment on this car. I was one of the unlucky Job 1 owners who missed out on Kysor shutters :( guess it's not so bad seeing as a small group of them were recalled, but I would have liked the extra highway efficiency.

ARGH. I digress. The car does have LEDs and the most non-colored white LEDs possible. I only noticed the difference when I opened my vanity mirror. <--- Those are DEFINITELY incandescent and yellow compared to the yellowish LEDs found in the other housing units.

In comparison of the two (vanity and dome) the difference is clear. When comparing my dome to a '12 LED the difference is distinguishable as well.

Bottom line: I do believe that Ford is using LEDs. They're just not as white as the ones they used in the '12 model or what one typically things LEDs should look like.

I work with white LEDs on a daily basis. Though tint-binning is getting better, getting perfect tint with them is like playing the lottery. It's not very likely that all '12 Focus' have better tint than all '13s.
