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


Review

Cars should last well over 100,000 miles, but not this one. radio went first, then transmission (the one thing Ford was willing to address). Power steering went out, $ 1200 + repair. Traction control was a joke had to turn it off when it rained. basically it would stay in low gear and buck a lot. not a dependable car. Junk yard ready at 6 years of age and under 80,000 miles. A cheap old beater car is better than this.

I have had no problems with this car except for a transmission recall that was promptly fixed by the dealership. I have had it for 7 years.

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


Review

The best part of having the SEL version was the entertainment system; the speakers were great, and I had a large touchscreen. The leather seats were a plus as well. The worst part is the issues I had to deal with. The shifting was horrible. Every time I accelerated, the car jumped several times. The motor also gave out on me at 80,000 miles. I had an extended full warranty, so I was able to fix those with it. The car had a few other issues (noises) that I didn’t have a chance to diagnose before selling the car because I was just tired of it.
