If you cannot help with getting the part then I have no use for you and I would rather not have our car flagged in your database.

Here is how this should have gone.
Ford Customer Service : We again apologize for the inconvenience that you are experiencing. If you give me the information I am requesting we will provide a rental car until your BRAND NEW FORD FOCUS is repaired. ( It is the least we can do as for other customers we are giving them free maintenance for 5 years). We understand that Texas has a lemon law but since we do not acknowlege that there is an issue we will not take the car back.

You are correct, no courtesy car and I have not heard anything from Natasha saying that she could or would help me. Not once. It as if they were like the IT support from India goes. They read from a script and outside of that they really cannot help. Good customer service would be . ( I can help) which is not happening here. I get maybe I can help.

You are correct about the chill pill. But I wonder if this was happening to you and your families lives were in danger if you would still say that.

I have said many times I would help, but I am still waiting on your VIN and/or address so I can escalate your issue.

Actually she said "As I said in my PM, I cannot guarantee the part will be expedited" No loaner, no rental. She just as good as said there is nothing they can do to help but knowing that they still want the information. WHY?
Logically, if they can not help then why do the want the info? All this for some nuts or the lack of? "For want of a Nail" proverb

If we cannot get the part expedited then I have no use for them and there is no way in heck that I will allow them to tag my vehicle in their database. Good luck trying to sell the car once that happens.

The process begins when the VIN is sent over. I escalate the case to the Customer Service Manager for your area, and we review all resources to see if the part can be expedited to your dealer.

Has anyone experienced this in a car that was built after the 8/1/11 TSB date? I have been driving another Focus that was built 10/11 and it seems to be experiencing the steering problem as discussed here.

Sometimes it is fine, and then I will be driving down a straight highway and it seems like I am constantly adjusting the steering wheel, and it has a "lump" at the center that you have to push through when you are doing small corrections on at highway speeds. It is very exhausting.

When I drive my original car, which was built last April (which didn't have the steering issue) I do not notice this. I drive the same sections of highway 5 days a week for 80 miles every day with both cars and there is something different with the newer car.
