Used 2013 Ford Focus S for Sale
Reviews for 2013 Ford Focus
Ergonomics were great and car was very comfortable.
Car had a clutch shutter that rattled between 2-3 and 3-4 gear. Ford tried to pawn it off as normal, but the fact that they issued a advisory and an extended warranty to cover the constant reprogramming of the ECM to keep the transmission from forgetting when to shift makes me think it was not normal but a manufacturers defect.
Beware of Automatic Transmission
The car in general is a good car... BUT The "Ford Power Shift Automatic Transmission" is a hybrid between an automatic and a manual, with a clutch. The car shudders when shifting, lags between gears, and shifts hard. It is also noisy and sounds like there's loose parts. Ford has a FIELD SERVICE ACTION (FSA) for the clutch and computer controlling the transmission. If you take it to Ford, they will replace the clutch free of charge, but it takes 6 weeks to get the part ordered. Truthfully, my car has been running better since I go the new clutch a couple of weeks ago. But I believe buyers should be CLEARLY INFORMED that the car they are about to buy has a transmission that they've never heard of before.
Bad Transmissions and No help from Ford
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.
