Lacking in a couple areas
By txjetmech on
2012 Ford Focus Titanium 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6AM)
I bought my 2012 Focus on January 14th. The interior styling is nice. The car is responsive with the sport suspension package. The gas and brake pedals are a little too close together. This car is no speed demon in any sense of the word but it does well. I am not getting the advertized gas mileage even though the eco system says I am a champion. The car des seem to stumble a bit when parking in close areas. Don't plan on carrying passengers in the back seat unless you have short legs and can move the seats up. Average people forget about it.
The transmission could use a bit more refinement. The cup holders need to be forward a little more. They are too close to the center arm rest for a large cup to fit well. They do fit but it is a tight squeeze. Come on Ford, your just about there but torque converter needs to release better so it does not feel like the car is about to stall.
