Couldn't ask for more car for the price

2012 Ford Focus Charlie - Atoka, TN 03/21/2015

The pros of this car are 40+mpg, great styling, more than ample room for two adults traveling, very comfortable ride and handling for a light suspension vehicle. 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 enjoy my Ford Focus

2013 Ford Focus Susan - Opelika, AL 03/02/2015

It gets very good gas mileage, I average about 32 MPG. It seems to be moderately sized outside, but inside it feels like a much larger vehicle. There is plenty of room, the seating is comfortable and the built in USB comes in very handy. It handles well in the city and especially on the highway. It looks pretty darn sharp, too. I love mine.

Bad transmission

2012 Ford Focus Andy W - High point, NC 01/28/2016

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.
