  • 2012 Ford Focus Titanium in Houston, Texas 77074

    Mileage: 91,610

    VIN: 1FAHP3N26CL415424

    Stock Number: 16554357

    Location: CarMax Southwest Freeway in Houston, Texas 77074

    Description Used 2012 Ford Focus Titanium for sale - $10,599, 91,610 miles with , Bluetooth, Technology Package, Leather Seats

    Transmission: Automatic Color: Black Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.23 (169 reviews) "Do not buy the focus with the "automatic transmission". It's not a true automatic, it's actually a manual transmission that shifts itself. However it's a flawed design and very problematic. The clutches slip, it will shake the front end of the car during acceleration, and make loud grinding noises during shifts sometimes. Ford has no 100% solution to solving these issues, they start by reprogramming the transmission computer but that doesn't help, then they will order a new clutch pack for it but that takes twelve weeks to arrive and still is not a 100% fix. If you want a focus, buy the true manual version of the car. The engine is great, pretty strong and fuel efficient. The ford sync works pretty decent."

    Description Used 2012 Ford Focus Titanium for sale - $9,998, 117,935 miles with , Bluetooth, Leather Seats, Sunroof(s)

    Transmission: Automatic Color: White Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.23 (169 reviews) "This is a compact car that is great for commuters like me, and also quite sporty. It doesn't get the fuel economy of a Toyota Prius, the power of a SkyActiv Mazda3, or the front storage and passenger accommodation of a Chevrolet Cruze, but it does adequately well in all those areas and also provides a very responsive and feature-rich driving experience. The exterior styling is exciting, and the interior styling is decent with some nice materials. It has some undesirable characteristics in its transmission, cabin noise, and entertainment systems, but none of these things is too particularly bad, and my overall sentiment of the vehicle is very positive. I am wholly satisfied with my purchase, and I have no regrets about it."

The focus brings European sophistication to America, and it's a great thing to have. The only problem I've had so far is that the Sony sound system produces a bit of hideous door rattle at high levels of bass."

Even with the sunroof and spiky hair, headroom isn't an issue (lower the seat when you test drive it!) The features on the Titanium are great. The smart key works flawlessly. The navigation is a big plus and I use it often when traveling. The interior of the car is high quality."

    Transmission: Automatic Color: Gray Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.23 (169 reviews) "I love the car, but it does have some serious transmission problems. One day the check engine light will be on and the next it's gone. As well as the transmission light, it'll ask you to pull over safely. It had a recall on the TCM and the control module but it was already done and the car is still jumping. I regret buying the car for that reason. Otherwise, I have no issue with anything else. I love the interior layout, the hatchback room, the leather and the sunroof."

    Transmission: Automatic Color: White Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.23 (169 reviews) "Transmission in this car is pretty bad. Ford implemented a dual clutch in 2012, and it definitely wasn't a finished product when they rolled it out. The car has a horrible shudder on take off, and can feel unsafe when it does. This is the biggest issue I've had with the car. Everything else has been great. If it wasn't for the transmission issues, this would be a 5 star car in my eyes."

    Transmission: Automatic Color: Gray Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.23 (169 reviews) "I would have given it 5 stars if not for the squirrely transmission. After research I found that this year had issues with the new style of transmission. That said it's easy enough to work around it by using manual mode while city driving so I would still recommend it. It is a very good value for the price. The sporty style is beautiful, my car is a gorgeous golden yellow, the titanium package is very useful as well as sleek. Love the backup camera! It is also much cheaper to insure than an SUV. I recommend Carmax because no hassle customer service, and I had and especially knowledgeable and professional sales guy."

The cons, other than no light in the glove box, none. Originally bought for to and from work vehicle, since then have taking two 3000-4000 trips in it with absolutely no complaints. The fuel savings will literally pay for this car. Have had many compliments on vehicle as a whole. Ford Focus, you are a keeper"

I've always switched car brands at $30,000 but after test driving a lot of other current new brands/models, I'm still shopping because this car doesn't feel like a small engine while equal engines of other makes, make it so obvious. The gas milage is great too! Cosmetically, I also love the white top stitching on seats..... All the chrome the Titanium has, grabs the attention of everyone that gets into my car. The screen is big but doesn't stick out like a sore thumb like my friends luxury cars either. the only reason I don't 5 stars is the city driving acceleration has an occasional flaw..."

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."

Vehicle Review: 4.23 (169 reviews) "I never pictured myself driving a Ford Focus but had to find something reasonably priced and quick after getting into an accident. My Focus is a sporty hatchback model with a sunroof which is great for my lifestyle as someone who was a previous Jeep owner. The only issue with this car is that I wasn't made aware of the transmission recall that needed to be repaired. This is something Ford will cover, however it takes several months and a few trips to the dealership to get the issue resolved. Once it is resolved, they warn you that this may occur every so often due to how the car is built. I would rate this car 5 stars if it didn't have this issue, however it has been pretty frustrating dealing with the transmission every so often."
