2012 Ford Focus SEL 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 6AM)

Review

My 2012 Ford Focus sputtered on acceleration at times after purchase. The dealership said "it adjusts to the driver" and it "mimics a manual shift". It began to stall, the parking assist never worked and was replaced twice, the parking sensors would go off for no reason and the sputtering continued to worsen. I was later told there is a known problem with these vehicles. This was not disclosed when I purchased the car and it was intended for my 16 year old new driver. After exactly 12 months, the transmission went bad. Now I am in a new car with an outrageous payment because I was upside down. My choice was taken, if I had known there was an issue with this car, I would not have bought it.

Favorite Features

Sync.

Suggested Improvements

Put a car on the market that performs as stated and expected. I was extremely disappointed and very thankful I didn't put my child in this car. Very bad experience.
