Dude, I'm to the point of taking the hit and getting a GTI. Right now Ford has the ultimate cop out. Cannot duplicate. As long as they can say that, nothing will get accomplished.

Yes, apparently to get your car fixed you have to provide reams of evidence: video recordings, accelerometer analyses, and signed affidavits from other Focus owners stating that their car does not have the problems you are complaining about.

Otherwise.... "Can't duplicate. Car is operating normally."

I didn't read the whole thread. Have you taken a technician for a ride and duplicated the issue? Sounds like you should be able to do that with the amount of issues you're having. Dealers cannot get reimbursed by FMC if they cannot duplicate and verify the issue.

The issues with the car not locking/unlocking, MFT, and the panic alarm going off are so random, it's damn near impossible to predict when they're going to act up. I had to delete the service techs phone and reassign mine last night, and it worked just fine, until the drive into work this morning. Then it worked just fine after I got my coffee. The transmission is not acting up according them. It's just "quirky".

I noticed if I shift too quickly from Reverse to Drive without coming to a complete stop, my back up sensor notification won't go out either...good luck with the rest of the issues hopefully Ford will make it right.

If you want to get an idea of how some techs think about fixing your Ford watch this video.

I sure hope this type of tech never gets near one of my vehicles.

I had a feeling that with these new cars and the advance tech built in, that the techs probably dread taking the all the steps involved to reprogram whatever needs to be reprogrammed.
But I was hoping that high tech techs are doing this job because it is interesting to them and not a pain in the ass like it appears to be to the tech in this video.
