'12 focus with my touch and sync

I just joined a week ago and love how much info there is on this site. just browsing thru the topics i found one about the "My Touch & Sync" . Apparently there seems to be issues with the system seems all u have to do is to make sure that you have all the updates; as Ford knows about all the issues and is trying to fix as soon as possible. Very informative so when I recieve my '12 SEL Sedan (Race Red ) I will kinda know what may happen... Hopefully nothing...Again Love the site

What I Drive: 2012 Focus SE Hatch Tuxedo Black

A quick update on our new Focus SE hatch. The car now has close to 300 miles on it. We took a 185 mile trip yesterday with our big dog in the back. Lots of room for her with the seats folded.

Mileage was 31.7. That doesn't sound great, but we went over some mountains and encountered a lot of wind. Plus, I was downshifting occasionally to change engine speed during the break-in period. I know mileage will improve when the engine is broken in. We also took a short trip this morning. Half of it was at 55 mph and the other 1/2 was slow speed driving in the city. We got 26.7 mpg. Not bad for that kind of drive. My GTI would have achieved no better than about 22 mpg in those conditions.

The Powershift trans. is, in general, excellent but yesterday, we experienced some very hard shifting on the 1-2 and 2-3 shifts when the car was cold. There's also a bit of vibration on take-off that may be clutch chatter. I know others have experienced these symptoms. I'll see how it goes as we get more miles on the car, and I may speak to the dealer about it.

Other than the transmission issues, the car is great. There's more than enough power, especially going through the gears in sport mode, using the +/- button. Handling is great, and the car corners very flat. Also, I keep discovering nice little features, like the 2 lights in the trunk.

I like this car.

Just joined. I bought a 2012 Se with the sport and winter packages in Kona blue and 5 speed manual. I've owned GM's for quite a few years and I am quite impressed with the quality and fun factor of this car. Hope to get some good conversation and get the latess on mods.

This is one of the reasons that we have been stalking the Ford lots looking at hatchbacks... right now our Rott does not go with us in the 2011 sedan... with warm weather coming... I would love to trade into a 2012 hatch... if only Ford would post more than the $500 rebate.

You may be able to get a $750 rebate you can use with the $500. Order a brochure to be mailed to your home from the Ford website. Many of them include the "privacy cash" offer.
