Transmission Improved

2013 Ford Focus Titanium 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6AM)


I bought this car in Thailand in April, 2013.
I believe it is the same specification as the US car, with the 2.0 L engine.
I am very impressed with the steering and handling, and build quality is excellent.
On only 2 occasions, I had some problems with the AT.
An oil leak was found by the dealer between the engine and the transmission.
This was a major repair for a new car, to replace the seal and clutches.
At first I was very disappointed to need such a repair in the 1st year, but after getting the car back, the transmission runs better than in any car (many) I have owned.
it now runs better than when new, and I like it more than ever.
Often cannot notice the gear changes!

Best Features

Comfort of seats, driving position and visibility, steering and handling. Styling is nice and modern; it seems other cars are copying the styling to various degrees.

Worst Features

Slightly more power would help, but that's probably the ST model, not available here.
