Bad transmission

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.

Gets the job done

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.

Good basic car so far

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.
