We have owned the Focus for one month and it has proven to be a great car to this point.
We have had none of the transmission problems we read about in other reviews.
The vehicle we have was manufactored in December of 2012.
The car is very responsive and has very good fuel mileage and is near the advertised MPG.
The controls are easy to reach and clearly displayed.
Ours does not have the navigation system, but all other functions have had no problems.
Great sound system.
Good gas mileage.
All the features of much more expensive vehicles.
