Problems before 30,000 miles!
By S on


2008 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Expect problems before your 30,000 miles are up. I'm a great driver, no tickets, no accidents, and I take great care of my car. I was tricked into buying two of these cars and the first one's transmission dropped. It was at 30,000 when the second one started having gasket problems leaking transmission fluid. The struts are starting to seep but they won't fix it because they technically don't consider it a "full leak". Pieces simply fall off, such as buttons etc. For no reason. Poorly made car, and Ford is a shifty company.

Best Features

Its small frame is easy to park. It gets good miles on the highway.

Worst Features

Stop trying to cut corners and make a better product.
