2014 Ford FocusSean Mitchell - Colorado Springs, CO10/17/2016
So most people can't tell this car from a PT Cruiser. But most people can't tell a new Corvette from a Ferrari. Most people are pretty dim when it comes to cars, as evident in many of the reviews you'll read on here.
I'm coming off of a 2006 Audi S4 who's engine was a ticking time bomb. Great fun, very fast car, but ten year old German performance cars are not known for their reliability.
But I digress. It's saying something for the Focus ST that I am having just as much fun, if not more, than I was in the S4. This thing is like a go kart on a canyon road, while being practical for a family man. This car is universally loved by the automotive press.
Hate this car!
2014 Ford FocusColleen Miller - Poolesville, MD06/28/2016
Powershift 6-speed transmission has marked slippage and doesn't shift at appropriate times. Purchased in December with 11,000 miles on it. Manufacturer recall for transmission slippage reset--it had enough slippage to warrant a reset in February. After first reset, having increasing problems with the transmission slippage, another reset in June. Slipping again, but told that car has to fail by at least 350 rpm as recorded by the IDS Ride-Along System. So, I have to wait until the transmission fails beyond threshold to warrant a mechanical repair (rebuild transmission) instead of being constantly without my car while they keep doing an electronic system reset!

Overall great value for the money you're going to spend. There are a few cons being that the back seat doesn't have a lot of leg room, and the transmission is a bit touchy, seems to always be idling to try to find the right gear to get the best mileage and take off is a bit slow. Pros for the car are its sleek design, the sync technology is awesome, but hard to get to know how to use. The hatchback is great for cargo space and the gas mileage is awesome.
