Bought mine on Memorial Day (May 25th) 2013 and sitting right under 7,000 miles. Gotta love the short commute to work.

20.6k on my '12. I purchased it used with a little under 19k, so I've put just under 1k since I bought it. Other than the rattles, I love it. Rattles didn't set in until 2 weeks after I picked it up, so go figure.

WOW! How is the transmission holding out and what is your overall assessment of the car now that you are fast approaching 80K?

40.2k

I've put 5500 on it in less than 3 months, and it's handled it like a champ.

I was in your situation - the transmission wasn't quite a "nightmare" but I believe there was a vibration coming from it in certain RPM bands. At least the dealer and Ford corporate both thought so. They couldn't eliminate it completely. I read the same thing about some VW DSG's. Also my suspension had gotten real sloppy and harsh, incl. bump steer over certain bumps (but not quite bad enough to avoid the "it's a characteristic of the car" routine). Not coincidentally, both the tranny and front struts had been taken apart at least once for warranty work.

Trouble is, there are no other compacts on the market I like more. So I took chance with a '14 Titanium. Waited 3 months to get a decent offer on my '12, finally got it and jumped on it.

My theory is that the '14 has all the latest hardware and software from the factory, so should not need any major work, and therefore will not develop the vibrations and sloppiness that I believe were due to the major work (similar thing happened to my '06 Explorer).

So unfortunately my Focus mileage was reset from 24,500 to 218 as of this morning.
