Miss my 08 Focus!!!
By justford14 on


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


I have 2012 SE Hatch with 6sp auto with sports package. I traded in my 5spd manual 2008 Focus sedan with 115k milage for this. I have to tell you the style, performance and steering of the new focus is so much better, but from there honestly its all less quality, less mpg and disapppointment. I was getting 36-42 MPG in my 08, I can't beat 34 doing same drive. I have several very loud interior rattles that are pending dealer part orders and the transmission never knows what gear to be in. Worst at times u hit the gas from a stop and you just sit there for seconds before transmission engages. Oh and bluetooth audio quality not as good as 08 focus.

Best Features

Looks of the car, ford sync

Worst Features

6spd transmission needs replaced, not sure why MPG so low and rattles everywhere!
