2012 Ford FocusCora Markley - Baltimore, MD06/27/2016
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.
Bad Transmissions and No help from Ford
2013 Ford FocusRichard Bowen - Zanesville, OH09/29/2016
We have had our car into the dealer 4 separate times now and the transmission is still messed up. The dealer has told us that it will always be bad and now the car only has 40,000 miles and the air conditioner stopped working. We have tried contacting Ford for help and they told us too bad.

This car is a perfect all around vehicle, it's a great commuter with excellent power, it is an incredible handling track car and I haven't had an issue. There's also tons of cargo room when you put the seats down. And it has excellent aesthetics! There's a huge aftermarket following on this vehicle and there's tons of companies making great aftermarket parts for these vehicles. Do yourself a favor and get an ST they're a blast!
