2013 Ford Focus Titanium 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 6AM)
I bought a Ford Focus 2013 a couple of months ago being told it had an automatic transmission.
It jerked and acted weird during the test drive, but the salesman said it would "learn" my driving style in 2 weeks.
After 2 months and 450 miles , took it to service dept for low gas mileage (less than 20 city) and jerky transmission. They said it takes 1,000 - 3,000 to break in.
Read the other blogs and asked them to take it back.
Ford offered us a lousy deal, so we traded it in and bought a new Camry.
Real car with a smooth transmission and gets better gas mileage than the Focus.
Ford needs to recall the "automatic" Focus.
The transmission doesn't work!
The terrible transmission outweighs anything good about the 2013 Ford Focus.
When you are driving it, you can't think about anything else than the jerky shifting, down shifting out of nowhere, stalling out when you need to accelerate to merge into traffic.
Ford needs to replace the "automated" transmission with a real automatic transmission.
Ford needs to tell the truth about gas mileage on the Focus - about 10 mpg less than they advertise.
