2012 Ford Focus - Tech Saavy Buyers Beware !!!
By spbio on


2012 Ford Focus SEL 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 6AM)


If you want to buy a new car that breaks after 30 days and cannot be fixed by Ford, the 2012 Ford Focus SEL is the car for you.

I bought my 2012 Ford Focus on May 27, the BRAKES, Antilock Brake System, Traction Control, Uphill Assist and other Safety systems Failed before the end of June.
The car has been at the dealership for repairs for >45 days and Ford does not know how to fix it .

Attempts to resolve the problems at the Milham, PA dealership, service department and thru Ford Customer Care were futile.

Ford markets this car to young tech saavy first time new car buyers, then treats them poorly.

Do not be fooled or you will have a Bad Case of Buyers Remorse.

Best Features

Too Bad the Brake Safety systems Do Not Work, the tech features are outstanding; Sync system, Bluetooth, reads text messages aloud, USB jack for MP3 players, good gas mileage, controls on steering wheel, side view mirrors with no blind spot, two computer monitors and Voice commands.

Worst Features

Ford needs to fix the BRAKE, Antilock Brake system (ABS), Traction Control, Uphill Assist Brake Safety systems on this car. It is outrageous that Ford Motor Company continues to market this car to young tech saavy drivers despite the mechanical and software problems with the Brake Systems that compromise the Customer's Safety in the 2012 Ford Focus.

You got a Lemon, it happens. These automobiles are man made, things like this happen with 200k dollar Ferrari's, They should've just given you a new one after they tried to fix and replace every problem with no improvments, thats where there mistake was
