A real junker

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


I went to trade my black 2005 ZX4SE 5-speed in for (hopefully) another black 5-speed Focus back in January 2012. Ended up with a pewter-colored PowerShift (sales manager said I'd get better gas mileage with the auto). 5,495 miles was all I could stand - A/C only worked intermittently (dealer said that was normal), front end made loud crunching noises over bumps, and the transmission felt like a bag of bolts hanging underneith the car. I replaced this car with a 2013 GTI - wish I'd dumped Ford long ago.

Best Features

The paint was nice - liked the tires

Worst Features

Start all over. Fire the drunks in Dearborn and let the Germans do it.

I have a 2012 Focus and love it, but I have had a GTI and it is definitely a better car.
