2013 Ford FocusNicole Simonetti - San Diego, CA02/29/2016
The car in general is a good car... BUT
The "Ford Power Shift Automatic Transmission" is a hybrid between an automatic and a manual, with a clutch. The car shudders when shifting, lags between gears, and shifts hard. It is also noisy and sounds like there's loose parts. Ford has a FIELD SERVICE ACTION (FSA) for the clutch and computer controlling the transmission. If you take it to Ford, they will replace the clutch free of charge, but it takes 6 weeks to get the part ordered. Truthfully, my car has been running better since I go the new clutch a couple of weeks ago. But I believe buyers should be CLEARLY INFORMED that the car they are about to buy has a transmission that they've never heard of before.
THE CAR SUCKS

THE CAR SUCKS I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS CAR TO ANYONE.
IT'S WAY TOO SMALL!! SO I would never recommend the car to anyone especialley to someone who has children.
This is not a family vehicle!! I have two children in car seats and they have no room, I also have a double stroller that can't fit in my trunk so I have to put it in the front seat. The car is always playing catch up so you can't jump in FAST traffic!! DON'T GET THIS CAR
Ergonomics were great and car was very comfortable.

Car had a clutch shutter that rattled between 2-3 and 3-4 gear. Ford tried to pawn it off as normal, but the fact that they issued a advisory and an extended warranty to cover the constant reprogramming of the ECM to keep the transmission from forgetting when to shift makes me think it was not normal but a manufacturers defect.
