    Transmission: Automatic Color: Gray Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.23 (740 reviews) "It gets very good gas mileage, I average about 32 MPG. It seems to be moderately sized outside, but inside it feels like a much larger vehicle. There is plenty of room, the seating is comfortable and the built in USB comes in very handy. It handles well in the city and especially on the highway. It looks pretty darn sharp, too. I love mine."

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.

    Transmission: Automatic Color: Silver Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.5 (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."

    Transmission: Automatic Color: Green Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.23 (740 reviews) "This car is cozy and comfortable. I'm 6'1" and I was worried about interior room before I test drove it. 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 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."

    Transmission: Automatic Color: Blue Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.5 (740 reviews) "Cons: bluetooth breaks often, gears get stuck, small interior space. 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."

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."

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."

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."

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: Black 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."

I will be going to car max for my next car! Always recommend them!"

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."

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."

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"

I enjoy my Ford Focus

2013 Ford Focus Susan - Opelika, AL 03/02/2015

There is plenty of room, the seating is comfortable and the built in USB comes in very handy. It handles well in the city and especially on the highway. It looks pretty darn sharp, too. I love mine.

Great Car! Love it!

2014 Ford Focus Miranda - Pasadena, TX 04/15/2015

I love this car! This was my first vehicle ever, and I absolutely love it. It is a smooth ride, easy to maintain, not to mention very comfortable.
