OOPS, sorry for a misleading statement, the car was bought by my company in Sept 2011,(2012 model year) They actually bought 3 white Focus's with in 3 months, as we have logo's that go on the side.
Yes, it needs snows but they are not going to spend the $$$ outfitting all the cars. We did have a Toyota Matrix with awd, that was a good car in the snow. Switching tires on various cars that are on the road every day would be a nightmare.
No way should Ford be having trans issue's with out some solution, other than reprograming. MJEFF

I can say that the engine in this car has good power and good economy. I have been in touch with the shop that services my car, trying to keep up with future maintenance items. I believe this car has a chain for the timing instead of the rubber belt.
Most of our current cars have 180+ and thus we are replacing them with new Fords.

Are they Foci? That would be a ringing endorsement of the Focus if your company has put 100k on 3 of them and has decided to purchase more.

Can you also clarify:
1) How many miles did the OEM tires last?
2) Any other major repair items on any of the 3 Foci besides the hub you mentioned?
3) Any sign of the clutches wearing out in your DCT?

Thanks for sharing, it gives us the warm and fuzzies.
