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.

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.
THE CAR SUCKS
2013 Ford FocusJoy Hopes - Austin, TX07/13/2016
THE CAR SUCKS I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS CAR TO ANYONE.
IT'S WAY TOO SMALL!! 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
