I received a message from a friend about there being a possible recall on the 2012 Focus with manual transmission. I quickly logged into Ford Owner website and found that there is a recall for a PCM reprogramming. I am not sure of the cause of the recall.

I shall have to take my car in tmrw
Where are you taking it? I'm taking mine to Steve Baldo Saturday morning because it's just across the bridge for me. In fact they're getting a second chance from me thanks to the service manager making things right with me.

Mine was built yesterday, confirmed on Etis.

I wonder if it'll be affected.

I was not at all aware West Herr has a Ford dealership in Amherst. I bought mine in Hamburg and have been using Baldo for service because of the 35 minute drive to Hamburg compared to 5 minutes. Now that I know there's a West Herr Ford in Amherst I'll be changing my place of service.

I have the recall memo in my Ford account.
I will take it in when I have some other reason to take it in.
Everything is fine IMO.. so whatever it is is not that big of a deal to make a special trip just for this.
IMO emmisions related stuff is usually pretty trivail.
Oh yeah, feel TOTALLY free to insult my over my personal opinion about 'emissions' junk. [bootyshak

My car was made end of July 2011
