Figured Id make this thread as it will be useful for potential buyers and owners, now and in the future. Also because I want to know what tsbs are out there right now so that when my parents get their focus it can have those addressed before it leaves the driveway. Would be nice if this got stickied too. So post up known Tsb's and recallls. All I got now is the TSB for MFT that just came out. And the steering one.

Some 2012 Focus vehicles equipped with electric power assisted steering (EPAS) and built on or before 04/19/2011 may exhibit a lack of power steering assist on vehicle start up and may exhibit a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) C102D. The customer will see Steering Assist Fault Service required message, the steering wheel icon, and a yellow dot in the instrument cluster, and hear the soft warning chime. Steering assist will remain for that key cycle. For the next key cycle at vehicle startup, the customer will see Steering Loss Stop Safely message, the steering wheel icon, and a red dot in the instrument cluster, and hear the hard warning chime. Steering assist will be removed for that key cycle and all future key cycles.

ACTION:
Reprogram the power steering control module (PSCM) to the latest calibration using IDS release 72.04 and higher or 73.01 and higher. This new calibration is not included in the VCM 2011.5 DVD. Calibration files may also be obtained at www.motorcraft.com.

NOTE: DIFFERENT MODULES MAY GENERATE DTC'S DURING REPROGRAMMING OF THE PSCM. FOLLOW IDS INSTRUCTIONS TO CLEAR DTC'S FROM ALL MODULES.

Thanks guys. I was hoping this was the one for the steering "wander" at highway speeds that has been posted at length on this forum. Mine isn't doing it but we have a customer that has complained about it. Bringing up the concern in the system does not show a TSB.

This thread deserves a sticky and maybe a moderator can add a post up top that can be updated with all the TSBs so we dont have to search through the thread?

Hmm, I have the (slight) vibration in park, neutral, and starting in first. I assumed it was due to the undersized (right?) engine mount. But perhaps I have an unbalanced clutch assembly? I don't think my dealer would want to do anything about it, though. It’s not horrible so I’ll probably just have to wait until it goes out (hopefully within 6years/125k miles).
