I have only 1761 miles on my 2012 Ford Focus hatchback SEL and checked the oil today to find it is a quart low. Has anyone else experienced anything similar?

Welcome to the forums. No I haven't but I have an 03 :).. A lot of new cars the break in oil will display low because of the oil running completely through the engine, add more and recheck.

This is the 5th new car I have had in my lifetime and I have never encountered having the oil level be low like this anytime previously. In fact, there was never a time I ever had to add oil to any of those cars. They had their regular oil changes and that was it. So this is a first for me and I have to admit it does give me pause for concern as I would hope this is not the norm with a Ford. This is also the first Ford I have owned and I hoep I don't end up regretting it.

maybe they filled it "full" and forgot that once started the filter will hold fluid?

i would mention it to the dealer just in case but you should be fine adding a quart.
