Do Not Buy One

Vehicle

2008 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

The automatic transmission has problems with this vehicle. Stay away from it. I bought a 2008 Focus program car last week with 11,000 miles on it. I thought it drove very nice, etc., when I test drove it. I was not really familiar with how it was to actually perform. Driving a loaner vehicle of same type 2008 Focus SE automatic transmission, I knew something was wrong with the one I purchased. I was told by the dealership nothing was wrong with the transmission, even though the engine screams at 60 mhp because it is not shifting, I was told the car would acclimate itself to me, and shift after it got used to me? Do not buy one, this transmission problem is on the net. Last Ford for me

Favorite Features

Drives okay.

Suggested Improvements

Cup holders in different location. Cramped holders. Put a transmission in it that works, and don't lie about it. Listen to your customers.
