2012 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Way too much electronics.
Where are the buttons to change the preset radio stations or the "seek" button to find a non-preset station while traveling?
I have to take my eyes off the road and look at the display when changing stations, not very safe.
Also, what happened to the map reading lights and the 60/40 split rear seat?
I had them in my 2009 Focus but there aren't any in my 2012.
Not very handy.
But the worst is that this 2012 Focus with only 3200 Kms won't start in very cold temperatures.
My dealer tells me it's an electronics problem that, despite 3 visit to the dealership on the back of a tow truck, has yet to be identified.
Electronics are a good thing but too much isn't.

Best Features

Good fuel economy.

Worst Features

Ford should take a good look at the interior features of the Chevrolet Cruze.
