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


I am a Ford fan and will continue to be so, only a little wiser.We leased a 2012 Ford Focus SE with the automatic transmission.The engine is very peppy and accelerates well, as long as the transmission is in synch.The transmission sometimes faulters with the engine RPM going above 7000, not good for the engine.Dealership at first said the car would adjust to our driving, then had it checked/adjusted by their trans "pro",then have said there is nothing wrong.The gas mileage is 3-6 mpg under what I expected. The rear deck foam disintegrated.The trunk leaks during rain.There are rattles in the front suspension area.Car has just passed 40000 miles and we will be turning in car at end of lease

Best Features

Peppy engine, good handling, comfortable seating, good visibility out the windows, nice exterior styling, pretty good fit and finish for a less expensive car

Worst Features

Ford needs to get it together regarding this transmission, gas mileage very underwhelming, 2012 occupant technology not up to snuff on this SE model compared to other cars
