2013 Ford Focus SE 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I've owned a 2013 Focus for two months now and it's been back to the shop twice for bad grounding wires in two different spots.
The last one was for the fuel pump so the car died in the middle of traffic without warning!!
Not the reliability you'd expect from a car with 1400 miles on it.
The dealership just laughs it off.
Ford has come a long way but their individual dealerships still has a lot to learn!!

Read up on their Electronic Power Assist Steering
Not the sales hype either, find the complaints, there is a Tech Bulletin released on the problem but once again, the service center at the dealership acts as if there is no problem.
My advice ... shop elsewhere.

Best Features

I like the way their cruise control is set up.

Worst Features

I don't like the way their door locks are located in the middle of the dash cluster. Why would you do that? Ask when the car was built. Mine was built on a Sunday and I've had problem, after problem, after problem with this car! Good luck!
