Thought I'd update on my post from September. I did get reimbursed by Ford for the two clutch replacements I mentioned below, in addition to a repair we paid related to the purge valve that happened the month before they issued THAT recall. We met with the service manager, he said he'd submit it and it would take about a week before he heard back, but he called a couple hours later saying everything was approved!

I'm going to be taking my car back in for it's fifth (and last before I buy something new) clutch replacement soon since the May '19 clutches have been shuddering for the last month and it's only getting worse. They should be under warranty since they only lasted barely 6 months.

And does it mean that if I still need a clutch replacement before Feb 2020, they will replace it again at no charge?

Just another data point to show that these replacement clutches/seals is just a band-aid fix, not a permanent one in any way. It is a joke that a major transmission component lasts less than a year. This is why Ford needs to come up with a better solution for a lasting fix. They are trying to put an end to the repairs with the new warranty extension (19N08) but hopefully the courts will make them do something more meaningful.

Experiencing transmission shudder, dealer said it is not covered since build date is 08/2016.

Called ford and no luck. 😔
First: my sympathy for buying a Focus.

Second: in what way are you not covered? The original drive train warranty is 5y / 60k, both of which you're still within.

My favorite investigative reporter is still at it. I haven't heard much progress on this in a while so it is good to hear that the wheels of justice are still turning, albeit slowly.
