and dealer got back to me saying:Hello,
I’ve bought a 2012 Ford Focus Titanium a year ago and had a great experience with my car until last week. The car started extremely shaking between 1-3 gears around 2000rpm – it seems as the car is trying to change gears but it’s having issues with it. This is the worst in highway traffic once it’s stop and go. I was afraid the car will completely die on me. To add to these issues a coffee maker grinding sound started appearing also within 1-3 gears around 2000rpm (which you can hear with windows closed) and yesterday the car started shaking when I’m on reverse.
I am planning to take it to the dealer this week, however dose anyone have any suggestions on what should I be specifically telling the dealer so this issue is fixed.

We currently don’t have any appointments available at this time we are using a waiting list and I can add you to our list. The waiting time is 12-14 weeks please let me know if that works for you.
12-14 weeks seems like a very long time...I'll be checking with other dealers in the area.
