FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

8/22/2014 - LYNNWOOD, WA
SIMILAR TO MAN OF THE COMPLAINTS ON THIS VEHICLE; IT ENDED UP BEING THE THROTTLE BODY ISSUE. MY MOTHER-IN-LAW WAS DRIVING AND IT SUDDENLY WOULDN'T ACCELERATE. A CAR ALMOST REAR-ENDED HER. SHE WAS ABLE TO COAST TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. SHE NOTICED THAT THE "WRENCH" LIGHT WAS ON. SHE STARTED IT UP AND "LIMPED" TO THE FORD DEALER. ABOUT $700 LATER, THE THROTTLE BODY WAS CHANGED. THERE IS ONLY 30,000 MILES ON THE VEHICLE AND SHE BOUGHT IT BRAND NEW. SHE IS QUITE UPSET ABOUT HAVING TO PAY FOR THE REPAIR, AND I DON'T BLAME HER. THIS SHOULD BE PART OF THE POWER TRAIN, OR UNDER THE EXTENDED WARRANTY COVERAGE THAT WAS APPLIED TO SOME OF THE OTHER FORD AND MERCURY VEHICLES THAT HAD THE SAME THROTTLE BODY ISSUE. HOW MANY INCIDENTS OR COMPLAINTS DOES IT NEED TO TAKE TO HAVE FORD APPLY THE SAME COVERAGE TO THE FOCUS? DO THEY HAVE TO WAIT TILL PEOPLE GET BADLY HURT? THIS IS RIDICULOUS. PLEASE TAKE CARE OF IT.

POWER CUT OFF SUDDENLY, AND CAR HAD TO BE RESTARTED MULTIPLE TIMES TO "LIMP HOME." THE DEALER DIAGNOSED A PROBLEM WITH THE THROTTLE BODY AND REPLACED IT, BUT IT WAS NOT COVERED UNDER WARRANTEE. I UNDERSTAND FROM THE INTERNET THAT SEVERAL OTHER MODELS HAVE BEEN GIVEN AN EXTENDED WARRANTEE BY FORD FOR THIS PROBLEM, BUT NOT THE FOCUS YET.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

7/13/2014 - MORRISON, CO
MY HUSBAND, MY DAUGHTER AND I WENT SHOPPING. WE DID OUR ERRANDS AND MY DAUGHTER GOT INTO THE BACK SEAT. I PROCEEDED TO OPEN THE BACK DOOR ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE, AND THE DOOR WOULD NOT OPEN. WE LEFT THE STORE AND DROVE HOME. I PARKED THE CAR AND MY DAUGHTER WAS NOT ABLE TO OPEN HER DOOR. BOTH OF THE BACK DOORS WOULD NOT OPEN FROM EITHER THE INSIDE OR FROM THE OUTSIDE. SHE HAD TO CLIMB OVER THE SEAT TO GET OUT OF THE CAR. MY DAUGHTER IS 44 AND IS A LARGE WOMAN. CLIMBING OVER THE SEAT IN ORDER TO GET OUT OF THE CAR IS NOT ACCEPTABLE, BUT WE COULD THINK OF NO OTHER WAY FOR HER TO GET OUT. I LIVE ON SOCIAL SECURITY AND CANNOT AFFORD TO JUST GO GET THE DOORS FIXED. PER THE DEALERSHIP, THEY THINK IT'S THE ACTUATOR'S IN THE DOOR...BUT THEY'RE NOT SURE. EVEN IF IT IS, THE DIAGNOSTICS AND REPAIR ARE CLOSE TO A THOUSAND DOLLARS. I DON'T HAVE THIS KIND OF MONEY. PER MY ONLINE RESEARCH, I HAVE FOUND OTHERS THAT ALSO HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM. THIS IS A "SAFETY ISSUE". PEOPLE CANNOT AFFORD TO BE LOCKED IN OR OUT OF THEIR CAR. BEING LOCKED IN CAN BE MUCH WORSE BECAUSE OF THE PROBLEMS IT CAN CAUSE. I THINK THIS IS A PROBLEM THAT NEEDS TO BE LOOKED AT CLOSELY AND FORD NEEDS TO MAKE THE PROBLEM RIGHT. THIS IS A SERIOUS "SAFETY ISSUE."

WHILE DRIVING DOWN THE STREET I WAS A SLIGHT CURVE TURNING TO THE RIGHT AND THE CAR DRIFTS WHILE TURN. IT FEELS LIKE THE CAR IS LOSING CONTROL. I KEEP REPLACING THE TIRES BUT EVERY FEW MONTHS I HAVE THIS ISSUE.

ENGINE

6/25/2014 - LAKE STEVENS, WA
I FIRST STARTED TO NOTICE A PROBLEM ABOUT 2 YEARS AFTER OWNING THIS CAR. BOUGHT IT BRAND NEW FROM THE DEALERSHIP. ONE DAY AFTER AN OIL CHANGE I WAS SITTING AT A STOP LIGHT AND THE CAR FELT LIKE IT WAS ABOUT TO SPUDDER AND DIE OUT. I REVVED THE ENGINE AND ONCE I STARTED TO MOVE IT DIDN'T SEEM TO BE AN ISSUE. I TOOK IT INTO FORD AND THEY TOLD ME IT WAS THE A/C UNIT CIRCLING ON AND THAT THIS WAS NORMAL. I THOUGHT IT WAS WEIRD SINCE THIS WAS NOT SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED SINCE DAY ONE, BUT INSTEAD STARTED HAPPENING AFTER 2 YEARS OF OWNING THE CAR. I WENT BACK AND FORTH WITH THE DEALERSHIP THAT THERE WAS DEFINITELY SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE CAR. THE GUY THAT WAS WORKING ON MY CAR TOLD ME AT THAT POINT THAT HE THOUGHT IT WAS THE THROTTLE BODY AND AT THAT POINT IT WAS STILL COVERED UNDER MY WARRANTY BUT THAT IF HE WERE TO REPLACE IT AND THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE ONE THAT CAME OUT OF MY CAR, I WOULD BE CHARGED FOR IT. SO, BEING SOMEONE THAT DOESN'T HAVE AN EXTRA $700 LAYING AROUND, AND BELIEVING THE DEALERSHIP, I CHOSE TO GO ON DRIVING MY CAR AS IT WAS. TODAY WAS THE MOST RECENT INCIDENT. I WAS DRIVING DOWN A VERY BUSY HIGHWAY, GOING CLOSE TO 60 WHEN MY CAR DECIDED TO TURN OFF TODAY. THIS HAS NOW HAPPENED 5, YES 5 TIMES. THE FIRST TIME IT HAPPENED I WAS SLOWLY TURNING A CORNER AND MY CAR JUST DIED. COMPLETELY DIED. CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON, WRENCH LIGHT CAME ON, AND OIL LIGHT CAME ON. I PULLED OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD AND STARTED MY CAR AGAIN. HOW MANY COMPLAINTS NEED TO BE FILED BEFORE ACTION IS TAKEN????? THERE IS OBVIOUSLY A PROBLEM NOT ONLY WITH THE FOCUS MODELS BUT WITH ALL OF FORDS THROTTLE BODIES! IS THIS GOING TO BE ANOTHER CHRYSLER MONSTROSITY?
