Stalling and Gear Issues

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

Review

Purchased the 2012 Ford Focus in 11-2011. It was slow initially in responding to the gas. The reaction time is delayed and losing power. Over the past year, I am stalled approx. 50 times. Recently, the gears don't seem to be lined up properly. When the vehicle is in park, it has rolled. When the vehicle is in reverse, then drive, the car is still in reverse. I nearly hit a parked car backing out of a parking lot. Right after that happened the vehicle stalled and quit completely. Engine light was on for a short period. After several attempts to start the vehicle again, I was forced to have a tow truck retrieve the vehicle. Non-operable and unsafe. Ford does not see a problem.

Worst Features

Ford Manufacturing will need to either recall this issue or issue full replacement of purchase on these vehicles to the consumer. This car will cause some serious safety issues if not dealt with properly. This is a high risk vehicle to drive and I suggest that Ford repair or issue refunds their buyers.
