I got my car at 50,000 miles. I’m currently at 94,000. I have had so many problems with this car. I will never buy another ford. First the car has no air in the summer, then the car overheated and has no heat in the winter. I’ve gotten a new heater core (very expensive) new thermostat, and radiator flush. It’s still running hot. On top of that a few months ago I had to replace the throttle body (again very expensive) because the car kept idling like it would shut off at red lights. I had a Ford Focus previous to this 2011, I had a 2009 with that same issue. Idling issues. To make it worst I have to change the brake drums in the back after just changing the discs in the front. When I tell people my throubles I’ve had they reply “that’s a Ford for you, Ford stands for Fix Often Repeat Daily”
The 2011 Ford Focus goes down as one of the most reliable and affordable vehicle I have owned, and I have owned a few. I bought it used in 2013 with 30,000 and the only maintenance I have had is a full set of brakes and 10 oil changes in the last 15,000. It gets great gas milage, but would like if it had a larger fuel tank (only 13.5 gal). It is comfortable on long trips, and the trunk easily held the luggage for 3 people. My only regret is the color, black, but when buying used you take what's available. Over-all, I would recommend the Focus and plan to pass it down to my daughter when I am ready to buy another.
My 2011 Ford Focus gets 40+ MPG on the highway between 60--65 with 62K on the odometer. The heated seats and strong heater have been excellent in the winter months. The quality of the interior is a bit of a letdown as it features plenty of hard plastic despite being the top of the range trim level with leather seats and a moonroof. There is also a slight rattle from the interior that can get annoying on longer trips.
