She's two different shades of green and faded to hell automatic trans and needs a tune up bad

2013 SE Focus Hatchback

Hello All. I bought mine about 3 weeks ago and now have about 600 miles on it. It has automatic dual clutch and I have not experienced any shuttering or hesitation issues. The vehicle is peppy and corners nicely. I have had a bunch of sport cars in the past, corvettes,mustangs,miata, mercedes slk. The focus reminds me most of the mercedes slk.
I checked the bell housing and transmission..no leaks. So far nothing to complain about.

First Focus, First Ford, First New Car

Hey everyone,

So am stationed in Korea and just put in an order for a 13 Focus ST that will get to my next base for when I go there this fall. Not only is this my first Focus and first Ford but first non-junker car so I am super excited that it's a car I really wanted.

I thought I would say hello and try to glean some good info and check out the community while I wait until I can drive my car.

Sam

Definitely the ST! It is actually what convinced me to go with the Focus. I had a buddy with an 04 SVT and then before Korea I spent a couple years in England and fell in love with the ST and was just waiting for it to come stateside! (I have long been a GTI fan, but the ST is just fantastic)
