    Transmission: Automatic Color: Blue Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.23 (740 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."

Vehicle Review: 4.23 (740 reviews) "This 2005 model is still in good shape for its age/milage and has taken me on one cross-country trip already without issues. Yes, acceleration has the same lag issues as most cars aimed at the basic commuter market, but it gets you onto the highway handily enough once it gets going."

    Transmission: Automatic Color: Black Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.23 (740 reviews) "Cons: bluetooth breaks often, gears get stuck, small interior space. I had to replace my transmission 2 months after purchasing the car brand new with 33 miles on it from Ford Country Gibson in Las Vegas. After it was "replaced" I continued having problems and had to get a rental car several times there after. Rain causes dings in the metal easily. Car shakes hard when stopped. Cheap interior. Small cargo space. And yes the moisture holds on to the windshield so it is hard to see when it is raining. I will say that the sound system is absolutely incredible and that handling is very smooth and easy."

    Transmission: Automatic Color: Gray Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.23 (740 reviews) "I have been driving Mustangs for the past 16 years and with the birth of our 2nd child the backseat was beginning to get crowded. It was time to retire the '05 v-6 Mustang in favor for something that had a bit more room in the back. While the ST does not have as much room as our Edge, it does the job. This car handles well on the road and is very fun to drive. While it is a major change going back to front wheel drive, this car has delivered. The dash does have a heavier rubber type of finish that hopefully will keep it from cracking years down the road. The interior is upgraded from that of the standard Focus and the 6 speed gearbox snaps into the next gear as you tear down the road. YouTube has several good reviews."

SO I would never recommend the car to anyone especialley to someone who has children. This is not a family vehicle!! I have two children in car seats and they have no room, I also have a double stroller that can't fit in my trunk so I have to put it in the front seat. The car is always playing catch up so you can't jump in FAST traffic!! DON'T GET THIS CAR"

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.

Good basic car so far

2005 Ford Focus D C Johnson - Harrisonburg, VA 03/28/2016

This 2005 model is still in good shape for its age/milage and has taken me on one cross-country trip already without issues. Yes, acceleration has the same lag issues as most cars aimed at the basic commuter market, but it gets you onto the highway handily enough once it gets going.

Okay car for price

2013 Ford Focus Boris Pocasangre - Los Angeles, CA 02/23/2017

It has good gas milage, big trunk, seats fold down for even more space in the back, and heated seats. Downfall would be the transmission. Transmission sometimes stutters and I hate it so much that I sometimes dont even want to go too fast on highway roads.
