help!!!!!

hi,
my focus tdci of 2003 115 hp, since the moment of the purchase she has manifested a problem to the conditioner: when I am me in the middle of the trafffic.... He Extinguishes!. When I have approached in the dealership they have told me that I have to make the updating of the software of the computer. Now however other holders of focus as mine, have told that this program not only involves the resolution of the problem..... but also a decrease of the performances!!!!! The update in examination is the cd28 and following.
Has someone of you had the same problem?
Thanks and hi from Sardinia

you would have to find some local people or people from an area that gets the diesel focus, which we dont over here, personally i would get the update and solve the problem, but if its dying in traffic there could be more to it

That's pretty bogus if its true. We do have it pretty good. shoot, most states don't even have annual vehicle inspections!
