Hi there Mr XXXXXX,good afternoon to you On there is no known issues or issues I know of on regards XXXXX XXXXX /door seals on the new shape focus We did have a spate of front window motor failures when they first came out but that has now been resolved The fiesta had issues with the door/window seals coming adrift but not the focus If you are thinking of buying the new focus I would advise the 1.6 tdci diesel Varient as the power out our v fuel economy is better than the petrol but it is customer preference Also the new shape focus is a very solid and comfortable drive compared to any previous focuses This is the first thing I noticed when I first drive one as to how responsive the steering feel was If you have the registration number of any said vehicle you are going to purchase I can check any previous warranty work And when the warranty expires to give you piece of mind If you need anymore help or advice on this issue Mr Cairns please let me know If you are completley satisfied with my answer /advice PLEASE RATE MY ANSWER Kind regards XXXXX XXXXX and have a nice day Brian
