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


I FINALLY got out of this car; but it did cost me.
The transmission was faulty from the get-go and you'll regret the day you ever bought it.
At parking lot speeds the transmission cannot make up its mind, but worse, many times it gets stuck in neutral and then catch and thrust you forward.
In my car the "reverse sensor" frequently came on while I was in drive.
The MPG is horrible, in the City I got 23, they vastly exaggerate how efficient the car is.

Best Features

Sony stereo is nice

Worst Features

Fix the transmission; tell the truth about the MPG
