Mr. Cassandra, I follow your post on Focus Fanatics and I can't figure out if you work for Ford or not. I have a Focus TI and bought last Feb. and in 10 months I have 4050 miles on it. I have a love hate relationship with this car. I can be doing 70 in the S turns and then when trying to go up a steep grade it powers down ... Read More
The majority of the focus' sold are like yours and absent the transmission problems, it is one of THE quickest, sportiest, economical cars I've ever seen. I'm glad you got one and wish you well with it. That being said, count your blessings. This website only shows you 1/5 of what you can see about the problems at the focusfanatics website. It would take you over an hour to read even ... Read More
I have a 2012 SE Hatch with the DCT. It has my touch/sync, winter pkg, sport pkg, moonroof. It now has over 22,000 miles on it. At first I did have the quirky transmission issue. After a reprogram mine has been fine. In fact, I love this car. The DCT is fun has he.. to drive once you get the hang of how to use it correctly. This car is averaging ... Read More
We have a 2013 with about 10K on it right now. We're leasing the car and have been very satisfied with it so far with no major issues. But, the transmission is definitely funky as delivered and that is the only thing we haven't really liked about the car. After looking into the issue here and on other forums, we found that there is a Ford TSB (technical service bulletin) out ... Read More
Elvisruns, I believe that relying on the computer a certain amount of times for a vehicle is probably part of the training now, it is incredibly cost efficient to "fix" things with a 20 minute reset. Don't get me wrong the onboard computers are great. But the only tell you where to start. Personally, I would demand they inspect it properly. The fact that my mechanic at Ford will not even ... Read More
I too have had the problem with the automatic transmission in my 2012 Ford Focus Titanium. I have made multiple trips to the dealer on the issue with no resolve. I finally called Ford customer service and logged the problem as a safety issue. Losing power (or waiting for it to kick in) when you go to pass on a 2 lane road will get your heart pumping. Anyway using those ... Read More
I bought my 2013 SE Hatch (automatic) late last year after agonizing for a year that I had bought the wrong car and traded in a 2012 Hyundai Accent Hatch. I first noticed this problem within the first 60 days of ownership. I've had it into the dealer 3 times now to have them do something (being told either "it's normal" or "we did a computer re-set and it should fix ... Read More
In my internet travels researching the focus DCT problems, I found this site http://www.lemonlaw.com/wordpress/ford-focus-transmission-problem/ Whether its worth it or not, I don't know. I chose to get rid of the car and went from aggravating nightmare to highly pleasurable driving in a mazda-3
Same situation here, I drive my 2012 focus and its 40k miles already, tomorrow will be going for its 3rd transmission rebuild at the dealer, at this point I am certain that the trans will fail again, I know about lemon law, but don't know how to start, has anybody got the lawsuit against ford going?
Isnt it a shame what FORD is doing to its customers, why would anyone buy a Ford after reading these complaints
2012 ford focus. loved it when i first bought it. now....Sync stynks and transmission "failed". Dealer was great about it. Fully covered under warranty (21,300 miles, mind you.) back ordered parts. unfortunately this looks like a chronic design problem and I smell a recall. miss my 2007 standard shift fully loaded BP green Focus. Some called it "ugly". I called it fun! it got killed by an SUV who changed lanes ... Read More
the parts are constantly on backorder. there is a clear message there
there are ford reps at www.focusfanatics.com actively escalating dozens of cases like yours, forcing the dealer to replace parts. just do a forum search for grinding, clattering, and or transmission.
The dealer constantly told me mine was running as designed when I complained until today. I took it in yesterday for what I thought was an oil leak at only 19000 miles and now am told its the clutch in the automatic transmission thats broken and leaking! The parts are on backorder because this is a typical problem? UGH!!!
I owned a 2007 Ford Focus that never had one problem. My mistake was when I traded it and bought a new Ford Focus in April 2012. This vehicle has been a headache from the day I took delivery. It constantly shifts strangely and the dealer always has told me its normal. Today I took it to the dealer for what I thought was an oil leak. LO AND BEHOLD they ... Read More
Let's start by saying My Ford Touch/Synch does very well and it didn't work well in my 2011 Fusion either. The transmission on the Focus is horrible the shutter and hesitation upon acceleration is not good. Making a left hand turn is exciting because you are not sure if the car is going to make it. My wife will not drive the car, she says it is too dangerous to drive. ... Read More
After keeping my car for nearly a month, due to "back-ordered" parts, I got my Focus back. All seemed well these last six months. The transmission was shifting as it should. No bucking, jerking, grinding at all. It was like a completely different vehicle. The Ford regional service manager even gave me a Ford Premium Care extended warranty for 75K. I paid to extend the coverage to 100K miles. I was ... Read More
2012 Focus hatchback - Clutch #2 is going in Monday. So irritated - will Ford just keep replacing the clutch until I turn it back in next summer? And apparently, they still haven't fixed the issue with the clutch, yet they keep selling them. We are back to the old 'Fix or repair daily' days - anyone else remember that saying. Come on Ford! Get it together.
quote: Incidentally, the 2012 and 2013 Ford Focus transmissions have been replaced in all 2014 models. sad to say, people are reporting the same problems with 2014 models. you can read tens more posts about this at focusfanatics.com by using their search feature for the various DCT buzzwords like shudder, grind, transmission
After 9 months of really horrible driving conditions namely: severe gear change judder; re-programming of the computer module; loss of acceleration when moving from go; unexpected roll back on slopes; noisy clutch motors; and one major transmission repair (which failed after just 200 miles); the Lemon Law arbitrator, through the BBB Auto Line, advised Ford that they must repurchase or replace my vehicle. For all those consumers who have experienced similar ... Read More
I had a 2012 Focus SE with the dual clutch tranny. I bought it in Oct. 2012. I stated to notice a slippage when in reverse. This progressed to slipping and shuddering in all forward gears at the shift points. This was becoming unsafe. My son said he had seen many reports of transmission problems with this car. 7,000 miles rolled around and I took it to the dealer. They did ... Read More
Very similar issue here ... 2012 Focus SE with Auto Trans. In what I believe is second gear, the car would shutter (like clutch slip) and, when hot (45 minutes of stop and go traffic) would sometimes jerk between 3rd and 4th ... like you slammed on the break for a second. I brought it in for the fourth time for the shutter issue ... this time I knew I had ... Read More
I own a 2012 Focus SE - bought it new off the lot. I was so proud of myself and all the hard work I put in to afford something new for a change. New to me meant that I could depend on it to run. Being a single mother at the time, it was a great accomplishment. Now to the issues. It all started almost a year after I got ... Read More
2012 Focus SEL Paid $22,000 OTD drove it for 18,000 very aggravating miles traded it in for $15,000. I should hate Ford for the duel clutch my touch hoopty but I bought another Ford (real auto trans, no My touch) I got 35mpg with the Focus but took a bath on depreciation. I no longer care about gas mileage. I would of bought Toyota or Honda but they are not any ... Read More
Well my great little car has been traded in. Ford told my wife she had to change her driving habits and I changed my buying habits, back to Toyota. Ford salesmen sit behind their desk hoping one of their old reliable escort and focus for the past 20 years don't come in complaining about this focus blunder, it should be a recall. don't buy a focus 2012 to 2014
I took the time during my last oil change to talk with the service advisor about these Ford Focus Transmission issues. He admitted that at first the 2012 and some 2013 did have some re-programming issues with the DCT transmissions. However when they are re-programmed they are fine. He has not seen any repeat issues. This is a fairly large Ford dealership. I then went home took the time to call ... Read More
After our 2012 focus was in service department for third time for same transmission problems they told us everything was correct and they gave us that memo of characteristics of the transmission that other people have been getting,so i have sent a formal complaint letter to Ford Motor Company this week and I will post the reply if I receive one.
I also have a 2012 Ford Focus I have 98,000 miles on it but it has always been a problem since day one. In face the transmission actually began shifting hard when it hit 1,000 miles and between July 2011 until now I have constantly taken it back with them only telling me that thats just how the transmission is. O by the way it is a Ford Focus SE.....I feel ... Read More
Does one of 'em by chance have a stick? If so, that's the one I'd pick. Fun car IF you know how to handle the manual transmission. Otherwise, no opinion as I can only speak for what I drive and again, Ford has built one outstanding little ride with this '12 Focus in our garage IMHO.
I had the same issues starting at 1k miles. The dealership had to replace the clutch assembly and then reprogram the transmission several times. It drove fine for a few days and then started up again. I had true metal on metal grinding in the assembly the first time. Acceleration up a hill was horrible and merging into traffic well there were a few close calls. They had the car for ... Read More
I have read many posts where the owner got fed up and mentioned the lemon law and/or ford buying back his car and each ended like yours, the dealer said they "just" found a TSB that would help.
What's sad about your experience is that the seal leak is a known issue that ford has issued a TSB about. All they had to do was look to see if oil was leaking at the bottom of the bell housing to confirm this know issue and get you fixed the first time.
My 2012 SE has 24k on it. It shuddered for the first 3ooo miles and then quit. It has been flawless in every way since. Very smooth both up shift and down. I'm averaging close to 42 mpg driving some city, some freeway, some country roads. I don't baby it and i don't beat it. Its my first Ford and going only by my personal experience so far, i have nothing ... Read More
I have a 2012 SEL with 13,000 miles on it. My car shifts fine and other than the my touch this car has been trouble free. It has been back to the dealer 1 time (my touch) but other than that no complaints. I am currently getting 36mpg. Here is the rub. You guys are scaring the hell out of me on this transmission thing, I do not want to spend ... Read More
I have a 2012 SEL with 13,000 miles and my Focus always starts but the My Touch is a Microsoft piece of junk. It loses time the channels go blank sometimes the blue tooth does not work. I have heard that the update/flash will fix most of these items. I do get 36mpg most of the time and it is a hoot to drive.
no,sounds like a software problem though.
Hi everyone. . Well since I got my car back. .2012 Ford focus se with close to 9k miles on it .. it was in for the tranny noise ...slipping and shuddering for those who didn't see my previous posts. It has been running beautifully! I still remain skeptical though. ..I have the fear that it might come back. . But that's the way i am. A skeptic! I do want ... Read More
I have a ford focus 2012 se with 13000 miles on it. I was just wondering if anyone is having the same problem that I had today. I was driving and it the car just shut off and would not restart. Also the time and date are two days behind and six hours off for the time. THanks
Well. .I took my 2012 Ford focus se in Wednesday. Had an email from the dealership that the parts that were on backorder until the end of June were in. .. early. What's in the report states this. .. fluid leak from input shaft seal causing clutch slippage...so they changed the clutch assembly the inner and outer input shaft seals ... plus all other fluids involved around there. ... so. . ... Read More
Yup puf is right on. Save all documents and dump that car as soon as you can. We will prevail in a court of law if we stand together,. Ford knows this . they simply cant get away with this anymore. thank god for the internet.
I wouldn't play with the S mode especially down shifting. Do you have a 2.0 or a 1.6? I have Ti, Ford made a mistake getting rid of then SEL Focus IMAO, Save your money up and trade or sell it before your tranny goes and keep all records. Puffin
The amount of misinformation on here is comical: “I do know the escapes are a cvt type transmission.” – maniac4 No it isn’t. It’s a conventional torque converter automatic. “.. so i got a rental. .2012 Ford fusion. .. same tranny. ..” - starluck3000 No it’s not. Like the Fusion, it’s a conventional torque converter automatic. I understand the pain a lot of you feel, my Focus had the shudder a ... Read More
Sorry to hear you've joined the club! My 2012 focus se less than 8k miles and have had for about a year now is in the shop for that very thing. . Shudder shake and jump. . Almost sounds like a song. Well it's determined that it's a clutch or clutch related and no denying the noise.. it was heard. . Like another person posted.. my parts to are in back ... Read More
2012 Ford Focus Titanium, 33K mikes and the dealer is rebuilding the clutches after the transmission failed to shift.. The system said the transmission needed service immediately... This is 4 days after the last transmission reprogramming. Can't wait to see what happens next.
That does seem a bit extreme! I can't believe it is taking that long to get a part that to me seems like a common one. ... well I'm going in today. .. curious as to what I'll be told. .... I'm expecting the usual. ."it's normal"....good luck! Still dazed & confused! & all shook up!
My 2012 Ford Focus has been in the shop for 25 days now. Needs a clutch, but guess what they are on back order. Ford has a big issue on their hands. I have been given a date sometime at the end of July for a clutch to arrive to fix my car, but then I ask will the car even be fixed or will this happen all over again. I ... Read More
Hello, Ford, are you listening? Class action suit coming your way!! I'm sure you're ready.
New to edmunds, but I found it by looking up the same exact problem as everyone else. This forum came up as one of the top results on Google. I have been having the grinding issues between 1st and 2nd gear since about miles 17,000. I brought it in around mile 18,000 and they said it was just normal transmission sounds and gave me some piece of paper that said it ... Read More
I had the same problem(s) with my 2012 Ford Focus SEL. It started in July 2012 at 300 miles and continued until FMC bought it back in December 2012! The story of it senses how you drive is implausible. What if my wife drives it? My son? They tried "reprogramming." (Twice) They rebuilt the transmission (twice). The installed a new transmission (only once). All to no avail. I filed a complaint ... Read More
I am having similar problems with my 2012 Ford Focus SE. It shakes and shudders upon stop and go. I am worried that this shaking is going to cause other problems down the road. I have had my car in twice for software upgrades that did absolutely nothing to help this problem. I was told that the computer senses the way I drive and this is why it does this!!!!! It ... Read More
Only if you can be certain that the Fusion does NOT have the same type transmission as the Focus does. I'm not positive, but I believe the Fusion has a more traditional automatic. Check with a Ford service department, to be sure. Do NOT rely on what the salesperson tells you.
I just got my ford focus 2012, used, in august and I found out that my transmission is leaking and causing the cluches to slip. also found out my warranty ends in 2014-(warranty started in 2011)must have only been a 3 years warranty or 60,000 mile. I had a 2002 focus and never had a problem with anything. I loved it but now I am worried about having more issues with ... Read More
I have exaclty the same problem, and I try to change it for a Ford Fusion trough my dealer, do you think it's a good idea?
NO!!! At least, don't get the "automated manual." I am the unfortunate owner of a 2012 Focus SE with that transmission. It is a TOTAL disaster!!!
I am the unfortunate owner of a 2012 Ford Focus SE, with the misbegotten 6-speed "automated manual" transmission. I've had the car about 1.5 years, and have amassed just over 18,000 miles on this vehicle. The transmission started lurching and jerking on acceleration from stops, a few days after I took delivery. I returned to the dealership, to be told that there was a software upgrade for my car. While the ... Read More
I just can not under stand why my ford dealer will not admit that my 2012 Focus can not be fixed The transmission after 6 tries and 14,000 miles still shakes, jumps and shutters after I leave the dealer. I told the dealer I've owned Fords my whole life, can't he just admit the car can not be fixed. Lemon Law takes a long time resolving this. It all started after ... Read More
I'm having the same problem as johnnyb15. I had the updates done before Christmas and now it's doing the same thing again - slipping into neutral it how it feels - back and forth. Can't get any speed out of it. Left it back at the dealership and told them not to call me until it's fixed once and for all.
I can only say thay my 2012 with DCT has 21000 miles and has been flawless in every way after giving up the shudder at 3000 miles. Its paint is the red candy metallic and it looks great. I found out the hard way that it really is a custom paint and does not lend itself well to fixing a small area and could easily mean painting a much larger area ... Read More
took it back 6 times, still not fixed, almost stalled out on me 3 times last week, traded it in this weekend, hated that car I have never hated a car before, but now thank god I have a car that actually goes when I put my foot on the gas! Bye Bye Ford will never own another one!
Thanks carvasd. Ford Credit's current 24-month base lease rate for the 2012 Focus in New York is 1.0%, not 2%. If your credit is in good shape, the dealer may be trying to mark your car's rate up on you. The residual value that you were quoted is correct for a lease with 10,000 miles per year. You really should find out what this car's selling price is before finalizing your ... Read More
I own a 2012 SE which can run on either unleaded or E85 ethanol. Not long ago, I was commuting between San Antonio and New Braunfels, TX, averaging 33.5 MPG with a combination of open highway and stop and go rush hour traffic. Now that I'm doing more city driving, the average is 28.5 MPG. I haven't broke out the calculator, but I'm getting pretty much what I expect out of ... Read More
I really like the red hatch and would get that model if I ever do. I find the radio to be difficult to use but since I don't have the time to really learn it, I shouldn't really complain...just looks a bit complicated. I'm sure over time, the tranny would learn my driving style and not be so herky jerky like the units I've had. The rental fleets love these things ... Read More
Just bought a used 2012 Ford Focus with about 34k on it. In short, love this car! I heard all the horror stories about the trans prior to buying it. The truth is that it has a different "feel" to it. Does not feel like a traditional automatic, but also does not feel like a manual. I have owned many of each type. This is a hybrid transmission and it has ... Read More
"Well if you read through this thread and others, there people getting mileage just like me. " Of course there will always be a relatively small number that buck the average for whatever reason. Unusual mechanical failure or whatever. But the overall average of Focus drivers are hitting the EPA estimates. Just look at fuelly.com. The 424 2012 Focus owners there are reporting an overall average of 31.4 mpg, right on ... Read More
That is exactly right bobananda! I purchased this car and specifically asked if it was a standard and they told me no. I told them I didn't want a standard transmission. I have had them before as well and I have to tell you. I don't think knowing how to drive one has anything to do with it. This is an awful transmission and a terrible car and Ford should be ...

Last week, the metal piping at the bottom of my passenger-side rearmost window fell off... and today, the parts came into the dealer; so I took my 2012 Ford Focus hatchback in to have it replaced. So far, so good. Has anyone else had a problem with the metal piping at the bottom of the side windows?
Agree with David. Sounds like a great price. Were there any other features? Also was this 2012 or 2013? Did that price include destination fee? Also, just to be clear, that price doesn't factor in trade-in, right? Sorry for all the questions. I've found that price comparing can be very misleading without all the details.
jg darling. I figure this transmission will get fixed, Or ford will file for chapter 7. They put to much time and money in it. errr I mean the consumer did. It may be too late for ford. replace the dct with a conventional auto and Walllla what tranny problems. But they doubled down with it for the 13 models.Thats what I call top notch management. I expect to see a ... Read More
I Have taken it to different dealers they tell me nothing is wrong, so how do you get them to fix something they say has No problems, of course they arent driving it when it almost stalls out or loses power etc.
hey johnny..So are you saying the beefier clutches are available without asking for it without a shotgun, Are we going to get a letter to your fact?. I want the new clutches too! how do I get that done?
Iv had problems with my 2012 forcus and my wifes also. I took it to one ford dealer they installed these so called updates and it was good for a while then went back to shit shifting. So I called another ford by me and they were stright forword. saying they have problems with the clutch packs going bad inside the trans and to fix that it needs to be rebuilt. ... Read More
I have talked to other owners they say theirs are good, taking mine back tomorrow to see what they can do for me, Worst car Ive ever owned , wouldn't even go with another ford at this point, dont think I have any other options.
wish mine was that good, going back for 6th time tomorrow for more reprogramming, seems like I take it in the reprogram runs great for 2 weeks then it goes down hill from there, I get the whole transmission thing, but the shaking and shuddering and noise are just not normal, also I only get 27-29 MPG I I do mostly highway driving, going to be getting rid of this crap ... Read More
I agree with you 100% I think the real problem is the salesman at the Ford dealers are not telling people that these cars are not traditional automatic transmission but actually a automated MANUAL I researched the car before I bought so I was educating the salesman when I bought mine but can you imagine the disappointment of someone who never drove a stick and then buys a Focus not Knowing ...

Im surprised to read this, That should have been repaired months ago. there was a letter sent out by fomoco explaining what you are experiencing.To all owners of the power shift tranny. it was a semi recall and it worked great!. I had the same problems but after the update to the computer its a blast to drive!. cant remember the TSA though. I think it 12 b 37. but cant ... Read More
IM with ya on that, tired of being told its normal! Mine has almost stalled out and it only gets 27mpg! I bought it for the gas mileage I could live with the rest, for th 40mpg I was promised, but they tell me then can do nothing about the gas mileage either, then yesterday my air stopped working, I have over 10,000 on my car and each time I take ...

Well.... I am glad that I am not going CRAZY!!!! I have been telling my husband about the shaking & shuddering for just about a few weeks...it has actually gotten worse! I have a 2012 focus se that we bought in March & have about 4800 miles on it...now don't get me wrong...I love this little car, but when the transmission mechanic tells my husband that this is normal for this ...

The Ford Dealership had an ST in black sitting in front of the Dealership. I had to stop in and take a look. I have a 2012 SE w/sport pkg, winter pkg, convenience pkg, sunroof. I have fixed it up a bit adding tinted windows, splash guards, body molding (color matches paint). Anyhoo... The ST looks good no doubt. Just enough to distinguish it from other Ford Focus hatchbacks. The sales ... Read More
OK I have had my 2012 Focus SEL for 6 months now and about 6500 miles. Overall I love this car. I am 49 years old and wanted something fun to drive. If you google Doug Hacker from Milford Ohio you will find an article that interviewed me when I was picking out a new car. I really wanted to buy a corolla S but I just could not pull the ...

my 2012 focus has been in shop two times for hill assist not working at all, even with 12b37 upgrade and i do not blame the dealership for this. i blame ford motor company for not being able to fix problem as of right now. the service department has their hands tied and probably are getting information slowly about fix. since this could be a safety issue, you should call ford ...

Don't you have a lemon law in your state.
Bought my 2012 new, has had issue from beginning, been back to dealer 4 times, they keep telling me nothing is wrong, shudders, shakes, doesn't accelerate as it should, every time i bring it back they tell me nothing is wrong, but they adjust something and now I only get 27mpg on the hwy!! doesnt need to brake in! I have almost 10,000 miles on it and have never had a ... Read More
1st post here, but I have almost 10,000. miles on my 2012 ford focus it has been back to dealer 4 times, for grinding, shifting, sputtering, shuddering etc, had up date done, fixed another problem, but each time they make adjustment my car gets worse gas mileage, so I now get 27mpg on hwy and I still have all the same issues. We have meeting with GM at our dealer Sat. ... Read More
Simply WOW ... the best I did on an 2012 SE with A/T and 201A package (sedan) was 3,580 off MSRP .. that was rebates and discounts .. new car BTW - sign up on the FORD website a good 6 weeks before you want to buy and they send out a 500 to 750 off coupon as well ... mine came two weeks after I bought ... Dhoa!!
I bought my 2012 Focus hatchback brand new. It too rolls backwards on a hill pulls out very choppy at times and in slow traffic the tranny slips then bangs into gear. Don't worry Ford and my dealer Gilboy Ford of Whitehall PA tell me this is perfectly normal and I shouldn't worry about it. As much as I like the car I don't trust it as you have discovered. I ...

Easy - take it to the dealer. Sounds like the computer is not telling the 1-3-5 clutch to engage properly. Only the dealer can address that. There may be updated software applicable to your car that will improve the DCT performance.
Mine shifts so fast - 4th gear before 20mph LOL with light acceleration. The main issue I've been experiencing - going in reverse, come to a stop, put in drive - and rpms just go up - no movement. It has also happened at several lights - hit the gas and only rpms go up. Any advice for a fix??
Ive owned a 2012 Ford Focus for a few weeks now. The interior light does not come on when you either use the key remote or manually open the door. After driving the car or sitting in the car for a few minutes, re-opening the door will turn the interior light on. The dealership says there is a way to set the light to come on by pushing a combination of ... Read More
My boyfriend and I Bought a slightly used ( we found out later it was a rental car) 2012 Ford Focus SE Hatchback on 09-01-12. After driving the car for a couple of days my boyfriend mentioned that that the transmission was not right but he thought it was just because we were new to the car. Then, when driving to work, I noticed that when I stopped on any incline ... Read More
Hi, I just bought a new Ford Focus Ambiente 1.6L six speed automatic, model year 2012. I have done 3500 kms and am faced with an unusual noise. It could be either the engine or the drivetrain, but it is a shrill and just audible. It is the kind of sound one can expect to hear when driving if the radiator cap came loose (thats not the case though), like a ... Read More
I have a 2012 Ford Focus with sport pack. There are NO 16" wheels on it. There are 18" summer performance tires.
"The best driver's car here is the Ford Focus, hands down. The 2.0-liter I-4 is powerful - its 160 hp is tied with the Dart as the most powerful - and the chassis is rock-solid, which inspires confidence behind the wheel. "The supple ride quality, precise steering, and responsive brake pedal feel are all very good for a car of this class," said DeMatio. Thanks to the spot-on steering, the Focus ... Read More
I never know what to think when comparing with other shoppers. It sounds like you and I got similar deals though I hope we are comparing apples to apples. A few days ago, I just picked up a 2012 SEL hatchback with premium package, moonroof, and winter package. MSRP was $24,950 (that includes the destination fee). My "price," as far as I can figure, was approximately invoice. After $2,500 rebates as ... Read More
I just purchased my ford focus SEL black, black interior leather, NAV, ford sync, backup sensors, 17 inch alloy wheels. MSRP price of 23,300, I got it down to 19,600 with a tank of gas. The OTD price was 21900 exactly. I feel like it was a good deal tax sucks here in CA anyways, but i feel like i got a good deal basically negotiated as close to invoice as ... Read More
Thank you all so much for this information as I was going to look at the 2012 Ford Focus this week. I won't even go near it now. Much appreciated. Seacluded
I bought a 2012 Focus a month and am having the same problem with the water stained seats. I noticed it after we came home from swimming and there were stains in the seats where each person had sat and where they had leaned back.
