Love the Car but had a big repair before 1st Payme

2012 Ford Focus Heather Cook - Atlanta, GA 06/13/2016

I love love LOVE this car but when I bought a newer car I was hoping to not have any major repairs for a long time. Before I'd even made a car payment on the thing the transmission went out and it was $1700 to fix. If you get this car make sure you get the MaxCare. The only reason we didn't was because my boyfriend is a mechanic and could do all the little repairs that might come up. But obviously the transmission was a big deal.

Great price but disappointingly loud.

2012 Ford Focus Suzanne - Kansas City, MO 09/08/2014

The major disappointment with this car is the transmission shifting. It's a very loud grinding. Most other online reviews comment on this same issue with Ford saying nothing can be done to quiet the noise. When test driving this car, make sure the windows are down and you are driving on a low traffic street, then listen while the car shifts.

Nice car with a few rough edges.

2012 Ford Focus Nathan - Burgville, VT 11/03/2014

All things considered I think it is a good car. It's nice looking and rides and handles very well. Fit and finish is very good. However, the auto-transmission is pretty bad. It never seems to be in the right gear and is very slow to respond to throttle input. Ford Sync needs some serious thoughts about utility and usability. The premium stereo has decent bass, but an atrocious mid-range response that rapidly induces ear fatigue at "motivational" volume levels.
