2013 Ford Focus Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Hearing a lot of bad reviews about the automatic not being a good choice. Duh, it's a 4 cylinder! What were you expecting the automatic version to be like? When has a four cylinder with an automatic ever been a good, reliable, engaging choice? [non-permissible content removed]. I leased this car with 90 miles, it now has 21,000 trouble free miles on it and I'm seriously considering buying out when the lease is up. The My Touch sucks and has been the only glaring deficiency. When an aftermarket system is available best believe the annoying Ford voice is gone. Drove this 1,600 miles across the country with out a hiccup. It was a very comfortable ride too.


Favorite Features

5 speed Punchy base engine Decent materials/ workmanship Sharp car, will be relevant for a while


Suggested Improvements

Get rid of/ overhaul MyTouch. A 6th gear would be nice option. Body panels seem much more delicate than previous ford vehicles.

2013 Ford Focus Sedan Titanium 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 6AM)


Review

I bought my 2013 Titanium new, mainly to have a reliable car. Horrid transmission that jerks and hesitates. Not safe for merging. Also it randomly won't start. I'm trading it in this week.


Favorite Features

Heated seats.


Suggested Improvements

Fix the transmission and the starting issue.

2013 Ford Focus Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Horrible purchase. I previously owned a 2001 Ford Escape and experienced no issues, so I figured I would stick with a Ford vehicle. I have a long commute and decided the 2013 Ford Focus would be a practical choice. 3 months after purchasing it, the heater needed to be replaced. Ford also decided to replace the clutches in the transmission as well since it was very noisy when accelerating and shifting gears. Vehicle was returned to me and the transmission problems still existed. As of right now, it's sitting at the dealership waiting to have the power steering rack replaced...I've owned this car for 18 months, and have driven 54000km....brutal.

2013 Ford Focus Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

2013 Ford Focus 22500 miles. What a piece of .... Three motors.Unsolved Transmissions problems, Dead battery, 2 months in the service bay. 1:30 am tow was priceless. The great thing is the 2014 and 2015 are having the same problems..So if you buy one here is your new routine. 1 buy car,2 Be told there is nothing wrong with the transmission. When you need to get out and rock it to back up.surges while driving .. Its your imagination. 3 Drive to service bay and wait for days 4 break down, get towed, and end up selling for less than you brought it for.Or just buy a Toyota and save your self so much aggravation.


Favorite Features

The TOW at 1:30 AM..It was a moon lit night. The stars where bright.The car looked so nice on the back of the tow truck this night. A priceless memory


Suggested Improvements

Do not sell this car..I believe you would get more in scrap metal

2013 Ford Focus Sedan Titanium 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 6AM)


Review

Bought a brand new 2013 Ford Focus Titanium with all the options including navigation and the handling package which comes with 20,000 mile summer tires that are ridiculously expensive to replace. We had severe transmission noise from day one. The transmission was grinding really loud along with some clunking noises, people walking or riding a bicycle would stare at a brand new car wondering what was wrong with it. In 4000 miles the car was in the shop four times for transmission issues over a six month period. The local Ford dealer finally agreed to replace the transmission control computer, it took three weeks to get the part in from China, it didn't fix the problem.


Favorite Features

Interior design, Ruby Red paint color.


Suggested Improvements

MyFord Touch System Is Flaky. A tall driver makes the backseat unusable. Make all the lights LED, not just the license plate light.
