2013 Ford Focus SE 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Have had the Focus Hatchback for 2 months and was very pleased with everything for the first week but by the second week it was making noise when accelerating and cont. to get worse.
I brought the car to the Dealership and they said they could not do anything till 1000 miles.
I brought it back at 1000 miles but Ford says this problem is occuring on the 2013 Focus but the engineers do not know what the problem is so they can not fix it yet.
They returned the car to me and told me to keep driving until the problem is fiqured out.
This makes me very nervous, what could happen to it next. I would think about another car until they have fiqured these quirks out.
Like the satelite radio and the hands free phone.
Mileage on average is 28-30 mpg
Ford needs to fiqure out quirks in transmission before buying this car.
