2014 Ford Focus Hatchback SE 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Let me preface this review by saying we have purchased a lot of Ford vehicles in the past 15 years. This, without a doubt, will be our last. The 2014 Ford Focus dual clutch transmission is nothing short of abysmal. We have replaced the clutch 3 times already and the cars is not even 2 years old. This is not due to harsh driving, weather conditions or lack of regular maintenance. We take great care in maintaining all of our vehicles. The clutches last approximately 5000 miles before the horrible vibrating/shuddering starts again. When changing gears at low speed, the car violently jerks and is difficult to control. We have reached out to Ford Customer Care many times and the only solution they offer is to cover all clutch replacements up to 50,000 miles. How about recalling these defective transmissions and stop putting peoples lives at risk? I plan on selling this car long before the 50,000 mile warranty is up and buying a Toyota or Honda instead. Very disappointing Ford, very disappointing indeed.

Review

2014 ford focus, had the clutches replaced in 2015 and still shudders. Got a lawyer and filed a lemon law .....got a settlement from ford and now they have extended the trans warranty to 10,000 miles. Just took it in for a TCM update as per the letter from ford (transmission control module) service adviser told me it will never be perfect but it will help. Even with the new clutches last summer it was shuddering again, what a piece of junk.

2014 Ford Focus Hatchback Titanium 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6AM)


Review

I love the size, handling, styling and interior. At 35,000 miles it needs a new clutch pack and strut bearing. The dealership has been nice about it, but this is ridiculous.

Review

This car has been nothing but trouble. For years I have been Japanese car owner and I made a colossal mistake by buying Amercian. The transmission shudders, lunges, and loses power. It is dNgerous and I have taken it a number of time to the dealership for repair only to be told "it falls within Ford specs". It's dangerous to drive, the engine is unpredictable.

Review

Bought the car in 2014, already on my second clutch replacement. Ford knows about the issue but chooses to sell these vehicles away. The car shudders going into 2nd gear and when sometimes the acceleration is just not there. These cars should be recalled
