Customer Review Summary for Ford Focus
Great car, very comfortable
2012 Ford FocusRichard Wiech - Acampo, CA03/19/2017
Great fuel economy, seats are cramped but comfortable. styling is excellent, plenty of power, luxurious interior, high quality materials are used. 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.
Fun to drive.
2013 Ford FocusDeke - Austin, TX04/20/2015
This car is a lot of fun to drive. I never really considered buying a Ford (I've owned mostly Hondas in the past), but I needed 4 doors. My previous vehicle was a 2005 Civic SI Hatchback. I loved that car.
The Focus handles very well, and goes fast when you want it to. The additional gauges on the dashboard seem a bit unnecessary and are a little distracting.
2012 Ford FocusAndy W - High point, NC01/28/2016
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.
