Bad transmission

2012 Ford Focus Andy W - High point, NC 01/28/2016

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.

loved the look of the focus!

2013 Ford Focus Kayla Cook - Spokane, WA 02/02/2016

Had a lot of problems with this car, transmission was slipping and to replace the clutch plate in it. The brakes were bad. But Car max was awesome about the whole thing I told them I wasn't happy with the car and didn't want to wait for the part to come in they offered to let me choose a diffrent car but j just decided to give it back this was after 30 days of having the car felt very thankful I went through car max and besides having issues with my car it was a very good experience. I will be going to car max for my next car! Always recommend them!

Great car for the price!

2013 Ford Focus Ben Anderson - Battle Ground, WA 05/26/2015

In the "Pro" section I can only choose 3 pros which is certainly not enough. This car handles great, the ride is smooth and comfortable, power is so-so but it's not slow, and SYNC is great. I love this car more than I'd love my children if I had them. With that said, it is common for the automatic transmissions to go out so if you decide to go with the auto, I highly recommend purchasing MaxCare.
