I told people when they'd tease me about buying a Ford by saying things have changed compared to years ago, but they woukd say...Fix Or Repair Daily. ...now I have no response to them. These "problems" whether computer related or mechanical should have been worked out before selling the model to the public. It's really too bad.

How many kilometres does your vehicle possess? I would like to help.

I don't work for Ford but I am a defender of common sense.
I am also an engineer so I can appreciate the complexity of hardware and (especially) firmware.

I bought an early production car and it's been to the dealer service department once (for a powertrain firmware update).

I've never experienced that particular problem with the MFT system although I could because I don't have the firmware update that addresses that problem. How it supposed to work is this: You go to your dealer, he fixes the problem (it only takes about 15 minutes), washes your car, and gives it back to you and you drive away a satisfied customer.

I thank you for offering to help but I just sold my Ford Focus officially yesterday. I did bring it in to the Ford dealership and they offered no fix..but they did wash the car though! :-) It's unfortunate it had to come to this! :-(
