I love my car I have right around 2000 miles on it. I've had 3 issues with it though.
1) From the moment I got it, it has had this weird smell in it. I'm going to see if I can get my detail guy to get it out. It's not bad, just weird.
2) When I first got it, it was sluggish...I put 91 octane in it and presto, it was happy and with the increased MGP I gained the cost is a wash.
3) I noticed the other day that the rear passenger side upholstery is coming away from the back of the seat. It's like the leather bead popped out. I can't push it back in with my fingers. I will try something else and if I can't fix it I will take it to the dealership.

I currently have a 2013 SE Hatch with cloth interior and it has no smell. I previously had a 2012 SE Hatch with full leather and it had a weird smell especially when it got warm.

You could just be smelling the leather.

Yeah it's definitely the leather, I'm not sure if there's a way to get rid of it or not. I'm not big on the pine tree hanging from my rear view look.

One other thing to add to my dislikes about the car:

I have the over head compartment to hold sunglasses and in the heat of direct sunlight it melted the mirror finish on my aviators...thankfully they were still under warranty. I wont be putting them in there again, jesus.

New owner of a 2013 SE Hatch, here. The car is far exceeding my expectations so far.

Only complaints are the shuddering DCT and Ford Sync not always recognizing my commands. I'm taking it in to the dealer in a couple weeks to get the DCT looked at.

Wife bought herself a '14 Focus hatchback back in Feburary of this yr, loved it so much that I bought myself a '14 hatchback too! Only thing we experienced was some minor issues which the dealer corrected. Dome light, squeak in drivers seat and a plastic trim that was replaced in the rear trunk... The wifes DCT stutters on occasion, but not enough to spill our coffee or complain about. Mine does not at all. We are both impressed by the overall quaility, ride, handling. It feels like a solid car. The cruise control is by far the best feature so far... I really love my car and can't wait to go on our cross country road trip next spring....

Congrats!!!

I can look into some additional assistance about the shuddering, and our Ford IVT Team can help you with SYNC.

I'll need your VIN, mileage, best daytime phone number, full name, and dealer name/location sent via PM once you have an appointment set up. If you message our IVT team, they'll be able to let you know what they need.

We're going to have to get my wife's Focus checked out as well. As soon as we drive around for a short time, running errands for example, it stutters bad thru first & second gear. Its fine on short trips, but as soon as we do any kind of stop & go, it stutters. Its almost like if the clutch thinks its overheating & it starts to slip or something.... Really sad because other than that, the car is very enjoyable...
