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

Review

Bought the car in June 2012. Have questioned that decision every other day. Started out with sluggish low speed performance with hopping and rough/delayed shifting in the transmission. Was told I had to let the car "break itself in" and the shifting would improve. I'm at 10,800 miles and now I've graduated from hopping to shuddering in the first few gears. Especially bad on hills. Like the car just doesn't respond until it has shudder a few times getting into gear. Finally, the Sync system is the absolute worst. Buttons on the screen go missing, GPS gets lost, stays on after the car is off, random loud thumping sound through speakers when car is off. Many updates, still not fixed. Annoying.

Favorite Features

Exterior look. That's about it.

Suggested Improvements

Don't release a system like Sync until you know it works and works well. Fix the transmission in the car. What good is there to have a sharp looking car that drives like a horse and cart?
