First month evaluation
By enabler on
2013 Ford Focus Titanium 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6AM)
Everything's working except (1) rear view camera screen losses the electronically superimposed guidelines by itself, occurring nearly every other day, (2) A/C button on climate screen is lit after start but manual control screen says AC is off. Gas mileage ok, but not impressive, only 29 mpg compared to my '03 Murano's 21 mpg for the same driving. Handling and ride are decent, bordering on fun. reasonably quiet with bare minimum acceleration power. Braking is not confidence inspiring.
Center display and control cluster on Titanium is tastefully and conveniently arranged. Myford touch works better than what people complained about; voice recognition system works well except a bit cumbersome. Navigation works well. Haven't tried SYNC.
Inconvenient designs: (1) fog light doesn't remember last state and has to be manually turned on everytime after engine start, (2) the switch is located too close to trunk release making it a dangerous operation while driving, (3) center console storage room too small, and the small removable tray is a nuisance, (4) front seat lacks thigh support, (5) integrated signal on rearview mirrows should have a blinking light on them so the drive can see, (6) no programmable transmitter for garage door opener, (7) usb ports are difficult to reach.
