Whenever my stinking parts come in that ive been waiting 2 months for i will have them apply the TSB for the key FOB and transmission issues. Also anyone know if the dealerships have the new MFT updates available yet? If so might as well get that done too

So... I took my car in to the dealer that my family has always used for service. I made the appt in regards to the TSB, explained the TSB to the girl, left my key and walked over to Subway for lunch..she calls me
"says there are no *recalls* on my car"
that my "VIN doesnt need the service"
I countered this with "all produced before aug 12..." she said it depends on the plant it comes from... ok sister the north american focus is only coming from MI, it's not an F 150 where there's kansas city, ontario canada, etc..

they refused to do any TSB work without me leaving them the car so they can duplicate the issue... umm.. it's only shuddered twice.. and I'm not leaving my car for a week for there to be another cold, rainy day for them to 'try' and find the issue.

end of rant... if you're ever in Western New York, don't bother with Emerling Ford in Springville...all the good people that worked there retired or got better jobs, and (I'm 25 so this sounds ridiculous) but there's just smartass kids working there now.

I called my dealer last week, asking if they knew about the TSB. I was told that there was no recall on my vehicle, etc. I'm going in to get an oil change, and I will mention it to them again, and tell them I have some of the "issues", intermittently. We'll see how the "Canadians" handle their customers.

I dropped my car off last night to have the TSB fix done to my car, I thought it would be pretty simple and I could swing by the dealer after work tonight. Turns out that's not the case, there is something else wrong with the transmission that they are attempting to diagnose. I hope it is nothing serious.

These dealership advisers are morons. These are not RECALLS, they're TSBs. Completely different!

Also, Focus4U, can you get the TSB number of the key fob issue?

I went to the owner.ford.com website and punched my info in, and it says that there are no TSB's available for my vehicle, etc. Does that mean i'm in the clear or should i still pursue this?

Where did you find an area that listed TSBs? All I see is a spot for recall notices. These procedures aren't recalls.

Oh i'm sorry, that's what i meant. I guess i mixed the two up. In this case then, where do i go to check these out?

Furthermore, i've had my car for about 1k miles now and I've driven in it rigorously @ varied speeds, etc -- I can't 'feel' the problems that people are having with the transmission. Should I still update?

First, check your build date. In your driver's door jamb on the left side there's a sticker with the manufacture month/year. Below that is a line of numbers/letters that's something like XX08122011XX which would be August 12th, 2011, if it's that date or before, you should get the transmission TSB applied. If it's after that date, your car has the updated transmission programming from the factory.

Thanks for answering that part of the question feta; however, is there a site/place i can go to specifically that will list all the TSB's for this vehicle?
