Wanted a station wagon & bought the
Ford Focus EXPECTING good gas MPG. The
car is noisy to drive due to the wheel
well being inside rather than in the
trunk. The average MPG has been 25mpg.
The plastic fittings inside the car are
working loose. Dealer "can't find
anything wrong" & said the car gets
40mpg...did "explain how their computer
does MPG". NOT pleased with car nor
Dealer. Ford does GOOD trucks but NOT
Color & body style.
MPG is poor !! Try coping a Honda or
Toyota for plastic "fit".
This is the worst car EVER! I did not want an American car, but my spouse insisted. This is like driving a time bomb! The dash board lights flash and blink, the radio works when it feels like and the speedo just stops abruptly! The dealer can not figure out what is wrong. It is leaking and burning oil and when the heat is on, the fumes fill the car, again, Ford has not explanation. It looked nice and sporty, but the inside is ROTTEN! Spend your money on a nice Toyota or Hyndai, at least you'll get a 100,000 mile warranty!
Electronics that work, dealers that can fix problems!
We bought this car with around 30,000 miles on it. And ever since it's been one problem after another! We've had to replace all 4 tires nearly every 16 months! The upper engine mount has needed to be replaced twice. The passengers side strut needed to be replaced 3 times. The radio goes off intermittently and you need to push the faceplate back in. the ignition wasn't working right. The car sputters sporadically. It doesn't like to start on rainy days. has bad gas mileage for a 4 cyl. It's poor in the snow. the a/c stopped working and won't stay charged. The list goes on and on. The car was designed by monkeys. It's a piece of junk, we will NEVER buy a ford again
comfortable front seats.
User better plastic and better parts. Better yet, Scrap the entire ford line of cars and start over. A preschooler could design a better car.
