I'm intrigued. You mention that you got one that was built this (current) month - September (today being the 22nd) ... That strikes me as a pretty quick period of time to have built the car, and transported it to the dealer, and detailed it / sold it (maybe with minor period of time just sitting in inventory, at the dealer's lot).
Other Focus Fanatics, how long typically does it take to order and then receive a car - ah in your particular cases?
All this having been said, it is possible that the "heightened QC checks" that Ford indicated (to one of the posters) were being done with the post Aug 1 steering racks, are not in fact curing the problem in all cases????
