I was saying they are posting their problems in threads that are not about having problems. So by what you are saying, I shouldn't be opening any threads in the third Gen section. Noted. I'm not saying you guys should stop posting to keep me from being annoyed, I'm just saying to keep it contained in the threads about having problems. And really, its not even you so much as its a few other members that do nothing but troll all the threads.

I've probably contributed more than you because I keep an even head and be as objective as possible I don't go around shitting on a car that I had problems with and keep coming back to a community that doesn't want me around.

That is you. No one wants you around.

Also, using ellipses is not a proper way to put together a sentence. I'm not sure why people think it is such a cool way to join sentences together but whatever, enjoy your arrogance.

Or you can GTFAC and leave us reasonable people be. Whatever makes you happy.

Its sad when there are plenty of people out there who have great experiences with their focii but none of them chime in on forums about said experiences, and instead it's a bunch of trolls who feel the need to bash the car constantly in every thread that they can.

Anyways, to the OP, I hope everything works out for you. Just remember every manufacturer will have its problems so don't disown an entire car company because of one bad egg! You could always try another model out.
This, so much.

People who are happy or satisfied don't need to come here and shout about it, we are happy. I am happy.

If I wanted to I could post all the things wrong with the car and all the things good and what not, but I feel no reason to. When people do have issues though I try and inject some sanity and logic and try and help but there is only so much I can do.

Ignore B Lou and others like him. Every forum has them. vwvortex is the best - or is that worst - for angry owners.

Quad erat demonstrandum, basically means which has been demonstrated. Its undergrad math proof habit, seeing QED at the end of every single proof for every single theory, it sticks with you.

GTFAC?

Well, let's keep this place somewhat PG. I suggest you just google GTFAC. Its the first result.

B-Lou and others, it's a truly strange situation, we've only been driving our 2012 Focus since July, but it's been flawless, both my wife and I have driven it over 2000 miles, mixed in-town, highway, lots of hills locally, never had a single problem with the 6 Spd DCT tranny.

HOWEVER, I've learned from what you and others have posted about dealing with issues with dealerships, like making sure the actual issue is what's documented on the workorder. I can see how just a minor change could imply "that wasn't the same problem" when it really was.

My sincere condolences to ANYone who didn't get what they thought or felt they were purchasing. I hope you do get your issue resolved. It's not like the dealers and manufacturer's aren't getting better than the average customer...
No offense to car dealers or FoMoCo. I'm a die hard Ford Fan For Life.

Well, I'm no expert on such things like you, since you've spent all your life around cars like you claim and to you that makes your automotive knowledge more valuable (not really, but whatever makes you happy).

The tranny on the Focus is basically kissing the ass of the engine given how its FWD, transverse, and has unequal half shafts.

Or are you surprised that I know my way around a car enough?

Cause people like you are what makes forums like this a shit place. You clamour on about how you can tear down an engine and rebuild it blindfolded and you think that kind of knowledge somehow makes your opinion more valid.

I'm not the first one to say this to you, we all know you're hated by plenty, so just leave. You don't have the car, you don't give useful advice and you just shit on it at every turn possible hoping someone gives you sympathy for your 'troubles'.

If we had more people like you who speak up when their car just works, 99% of the posts on Focus Fanatics would be just like yours.

The 1% will always be people with trouble, and I won't discount those with real issues but to assume that we speak for the majority of the car buyers is the biggest flaw to be made.

We don't speak for all the owners, far from it.

Because you also lash out at others in a pretty ignorant way; I'm not claiming to be a saint here either so lets just move on and get back on topic.
