2012 FOCUS SFE - Transmission died $4,300 fix

2012 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I have a 2012 SFE that I purchased in Nov 2011 with 7 miles on it. Before I ever drove it, the salesperson told me about the shutter and explained why it was doing it and that it was normal. Within a month of getting it, I had to take it in to have the transmission "reprogrammed". That stopped the issues for a while but within another month I was back again. The service tech told me the same story and that I should keep driving it and it will eventually get better. I drive 120 per day all highway miles. At 84K miles I had to replace the transmission. $4,300USD.

Favorite Features

Exterior and most interior features.

Suggested Improvements

Do not sell this car like it is any longer. All the money I saved on fuel, I lost when the transmission broke before it was even paid off. 2 years old and the transmission died.
