Used 2012 Ford Focus SEL for Sale
Reviews for 2012 Ford Focus
Great car that I enjoy driving it.
Gets @ 33 mpg city driving, which was very similar to the 1999 Ford Escort that I bought brand new. It was the best car I've ever had. I don't know what the highway mileage is on the Focus since I haven't gone on a trip. BTW - I bought the Focus in August of 2015.
Great Car, Was Not Informed of Transmission Recall
I never pictured myself driving a Ford Focus but had to find something reasonably priced and quick after getting into an accident. My Focus is a sporty hatchback model with a sunroof which is great for my lifestyle as someone who was a previous Jeep owner. The only issue with this car is that I wasn't made aware of the transmission recall that needed to be repaired. This is something Ford will cover, however it takes several months and a few trips to the dealership to get the issue resolved. Once it is resolved, they warn you that this may occur every so often due to how the car is built. I would rate this car 5 stars if it didn't have this issue, however it has been pretty frustrating dealing with the transmission every so often.
Trans wasn't quite ready to implement
Transmission in this car is pretty bad. Ford implemented a dual clutch in 2012, and it definitely wasn't a finished product when they rolled it out. The car has a horrible shudder on take off, and can feel unsafe when it does. This is the biggest issue I've had with the car. Everything else has been great. If it wasn't for the transmission issues, this would be a 5 star car in my eyes.
