    Transmission: Automatic Color: White 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."

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."

    Transmission: Automatic Color: Silver 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."

I definitely recommend it, if you drive a lot or even long distances, other than that. I've got nothing. It's not a family car what so ever. Back seat has no room at all. It's a very small car. the only way I recommend it, is if you don't have a family. For a single person. It's great. But that's about it."

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."

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."

The cons, other than no light in the glove box, none. Originally bought for to and from work vehicle, since then have taking two 3000-4000 trips in it with absolutely no complaints. The fuel savings will literally pay for this car. Have had many compliments on vehicle as a whole. Ford Focus, you are a keeper"

The car is always playing catch up so you can't jump in FAST traffic!! DON'T GET THIS CAR"

It is a smooth ride, easy to maintain, not to mention very comfortable. I wish there were a bit more leg room, and that the dashboard area wasn't so hard to clean in the front by the window. Otherwise, this is a great car! It was my best decision ever for my first big purchase and loan!"

Even with the sunroof and spiky hair, headroom isn't an issue (lower the seat when you test drive it!) The features on the Titanium are great. The smart key works flawlessly. The navigation is a big plus and I use it often when traveling. The interior of the car is high quality."

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: Red Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.23 (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."

It handles well in the city and especially on the highway. It looks pretty darn sharp, too. I love mine."

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.

Stylish economical smaller car with larger car comfort and pep.

2013 Ford Focus Kristen - Garden Grove, CA 02/12/2015

Based on the reviews this is the car that I chose in my price range. I wanted a car safe enough to transport myself, family, friends or grandchildren and yet with some of the economy of a smaller car. It gets many favorably comments on it's style as well.
