Also, I just learned from reading other postings that apparently Frosted Glass is not offered with the SE Sport Package. Could you also let us know if there are any dealerships (near 03110) that have the following minimum options:

Focus SE (Hatch or Sedan)
Manual transmission
Frosted Glass
203A
Winter Package

Extra options (such as moonroof) are okay.

Thanks again!

Thanks!

Another question... Both of the Portsmouth Ford cars have an MSRP that is $100 less than I've been expecting. ($17400 for the SE Sedan and $18200 for the SE Hatchback.) Has the MSRP changed mid-year? Does this mean these cars are especially new or especially old?

Ira,

Has Ford pretty much resolved all the early built auto-manual transmission issues and the MyFordTouch issues on the 2012 Focus?

How does it work with existing 2012 Focus owners when there is a software/adjustment update to any of its components? How often has that happened on the 2012 Focus?

There are still reports of older 12 Focus that have issues but Ford came out with a few TSB's to resolve issues. There are many threads in the 2012 forum.

Newly produced vehicles rarely have issuesfrom what I've seen. However this forum is a small sample compared to the amount of Focus on the road.

Ira,

The more I read on this forum on the 2012 Focus, the more nervous I get.

It seems like there are still new postings by owners from recent purchases still with multiple issues relating to the DCT transmission, MFT, and general overall quality of the built, i.e., roof liner coming loose, etc.

Maybe the issues are far and few in between, but reading them still happening today makes me nervous and wonderring if this first model year Focus is a right car to purchase at this time. I've always waited a few years before buying a new model to let the bugs worked out.

Postings from today:

http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=289847

Do you know when the manufacturing built started with the 12B37 DCT?

Thanks.

May 3rd is when it released, I really think the newly built Focus don't have many issues like it may seem. Any vehicle will have issues regardless of manufacturer.

see Hyundai:

Of course you could always buy a Toyota for their great reliability.

SEL hatches in CT

Hi Ira,
I'm in the 06355 zip code, last name George.

I'm looking for an SEL hatchback in either kona blue or sterling grey. I only really want the premium package for the leather interior but I'm mostly seeing the my ford touch/parking assist/ winter packages added on.

Are there any SEL 5 doors with only the premium package near me?

what about incentives?

Thanks!

Hey, I picked up my new Titanium the other day and I was thinking about adding the back-up camera. So, I have two questions. Firstly, can this be done? I do have the MyFord Touch system with Nav. Secondly, any idea how much it'd cost?

Sorry guys and gals, was out of town for the weekend (got engaged).

With regard to backup camera, you can add it but it will not be a factory unit. Most cameras start at around $400 and nicer ones will go upwards of $1,000.
