Most complaints have been from MyFord Touch owners. I see you have an SE, so I suppose you don't have the touch screen. What issue are you having with SYNC?
I do not have My Touch, just plain Jane Sync. My issues are: 1 - the unit defaults to Sync USB (as opposed to keeping your last selection, in my case Bluetooth audio) every time you shut the car off.
2 - the steering wheel mounted switches are very poor (cruise control as well as Sync / radio), it takes 2 or 3 presses before the unit responds and since they are "rocker" type switches sometimes they respond opposite of how you expect, ie. volume up as opposed to volume down.
3 - Sync apparently does not understand my voice or English
4 - the unit will not read any USB thumb drive
Extremely disappointed with the Focus as a whole, the car has potential, but is not ready for primetime
