I never really considered buying a Ford (I've owned mostly Hondas in the past), but I needed 4 doors. My previous vehicle was a 2005 Civic SI Hatchback. I loved that car. The Focus handles very well, and goes fast when you want it to. The additional gauges on the dashboard seem a bit unnecessary and are a little distracting."

    Transmission: Automatic Color: Tan Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.513 (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: 4.513 (740 reviews) "I got the car and several months later I began having issues with the transmission/clutch took it to ford for repair since it was still covered under power train. It was fixed, then AGAIN check engine light came on for same transmission issue. Yes, its good on gas! But in the long run its transmission issues become super annoying. I wouldn't recommend this type of car to anyone."

    Transmission: Automatic Color: Blue Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.513 (740 reviews) "The car has some weird kinks about it. My main concern since ownership has been the hesitation when accelerating. The manufacturer explained the car has been designed with a clutch feature- but to me it just feels like the transmission is failing. The car jerks EVERY time I accelerate and even after maintenance to minimize this, it seems to have gotten worse. There is no quietness about this car, the engine runs loudly and radio seems to be blasting when only leveled at 4. The car is great on gas though, I only fill up about once weekly."

Really Happy with this car!

2012 Ford Focus Leanne Mathis - Tampa, FL 08/09/2015

Love the many features on this car, automatic lights and wipers, rear back up warning system, sun roof. Also has the wireless phone and music Ford sync system which is great for listening to my own music and hands free phone conversation. In great like new condition.

Fun to drive.

2013 Ford Focus Deke - Austin, TX 04/20/2015

This car is a lot of fun to drive. I never really considered buying a Ford (I've owned mostly Hondas in the past), but I needed 4 doors. My previous vehicle was a 2005 Civic SI Hatchback. I loved that car. The Focus handles very well, and goes fast when you want it to. The additional gauges on the dashboard seem a bit unnecessary and are a little distracting.

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.
