Owned this car over 1 year now and still love it! Stylish design, 5 door practicality, awesome power for a 2 liter engine, smooth shifting Getrag 6 speed. Comfortable for long trips and decent mpg (28+). I compared to a Mazdaspeed3 and found the Focus not as quick, but much more refined. European design influences are apparent in the handling department.
Not too thrilled with the SYNC. Glitchy with iOS.
If you know what's good for you....
2015 Ford FocusAlicia A - Las Vegas, NV12/21/2016
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.
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.
