FoMoCo is making sure that the 2012 Ford Focus is flawless right out of the gate. The Dearborn automaker has been road testing the first 30 units of the 2012 Focus before shipping them off to dealerships nationwide.

For the first batch of 2012 Ford Focus coming down the assembly line at its Michigan Assembly plant in Wayne, Michigan, Ford took them to a Dearborn test track where drivers assessed them for 30 miles each. The cars were then taken back to the Wayne plant for more inspection before being shipped to dealers.

The Focus went on sale this month with prices starting at $16,270.
