2013 Ford FocusRichard Bowen - Zanesville, OH09/29/2016
We have had our car into the dealer 4 separate times now and the transmission is still messed up. The dealer has told us that it will always be bad and now the car only has 40,000 miles and the air conditioner stopped working. We have tried contacting Ford for help and they told us too bad.
Economic but Troublesome
2014 Ford FocusGeorge Korakas - Las Vegas, NV05/02/2016
The car gets roughly 28mpg in the city and 40-50mpg highway doing better the longer you travel. The engine is made for Manual transmission so BEWARE, all small economic 2 liter engine cars have problems with transmission and are not strong engines. This car DOES NOT have a lot of power or torque. If you want an economical car to go to work to and back, this is a great choice.
2010 Ford FocusDanielle - El Paso, TX04/09/2015
Unfortunately I only had this vehicle for a short time. I bought it in January and then in April I was in an accident. I was at a dead stop at a red light and I was rear ended. The guy who rear ended me was in a Tahoe SUV and he was going about 40mph. My car ended up being totaled. Considering the horrible amount of damage and the fact that I only came out with whiplash and a sore back I was very very lucky. The Focus saved me. So I went out and bought another one. I've never had any problems with either car and I drive roughly 5,000 miles in three months. I'd recommend this car to everyone.
