Worth Your Consideration

2012 Ford Focus Eric - Stone Mountain, GA 03/09/2015

This is a compact car that is great for commuters like me, and also quite sporty. It doesn't get the fuel economy of a Toyota Prius, the power of a SkyActiv Mazda3, or the front storage and passenger accommodation of a Chevrolet Cruze, but it does adequately well in all those areas and also provides a very responsive and feature-rich driving experience. The exterior styling is exciting, and the interior styling is decent with some nice materials. It has some undesirable characteristics in its transmission, cabin noise, and entertainment systems, but none of these things is too particularly bad, and my overall sentiment of the vehicle is very positive. I am wholly satisfied with my purchase, and I have no regrets about it.

Great Car, Was Not Informed of Transmission Recall

2012 Ford Focus Danielle Stelzer - Tampa, FL 04/15/2016

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.

Hate this car!

2014 Ford Focus Colleen Miller - Poolesville, MD 06/28/2016

Powershift 6-speed transmission has marked slippage and doesn't shift at appropriate times. Purchased in December with 11,000 miles on it. Manufacturer recall for transmission slippage reset--it had enough slippage to warrant a reset in February. After first reset, having increasing problems with the transmission slippage, another reset in June. Slipping again, but told that car has to fail by at least 350 rpm as recorded by the IDS Ride-Along System. So, I have to wait until the transmission fails beyond threshold to warrant a mechanical repair (rebuild transmission) instead of being constantly without my car while they keep doing an electronic system reset!
