Review

bought mine in 02/14/2014 tranny noise rolling backwards on a small incline car had 2 miles on it when I bought it brand new in 42 months the tranny was replaced 3 times an repaired so much I got tried of it other than that the car was a great little car gas mileage was above what was on the window when I got it drove all the way from Florida to Washington state on 95.00 in gas but the tranny messed up there too with just under 12,000 miles on it got back home had the tranny replaced that was the second time first time was in 02/20/2015 so if you buy one make sure it isn't a auto tranny in it cause it will drive you crazy sounded like tin cans when mine was about to go out never started out in first gear either most of the time started out in third gear Ford had no fix for this issue they knew it an did nothing about it shame on you Ford

Review

Brief review: Ford's support has been radically under par. Trying to get them to care about problems is a major uphill battle. I'm a very mechanical kind of guy, I do almost all my own car work on my cars. One perk to the new 2016 Focus was I'd have something with a warranty. I got a new house that I'm working on, and no room in the garage to work on cars, and my driveway is a mess. So I wanted something where they'd make it right if there were problems. They promised exactly that. They have not just failed to deliver by not really caring, they have fought me every step of the way on every issue. The car doesn't warm up during winter. If it's less than 20 degrees, I plan on getting 23, 24 mpg even though I drive basically all highway. Summer I get 33, 34 mpg. The motor never warming up causes the poor economy, and is also hard on the motor. Cars are not meant to run mile after mile well below their thermostat temp. Also there's a rattle in the front end. The driver's door was sticking, though they did eventually fix that after enough fighting. Because the automatics have a ton of problems, my Focus lost about 2/3rds of its value in the first year. Not a normal "you drive it off the lot, you lose thousands" thing, but a catastrophic, I'm-stuck-with-this-car-forever loss. Despite no longer wanting to drive it and Ford doing an abysmal job. All things considered, even though in summer I enjoy driving the car, it's got plenty of power for me and does a good job in most respects, I've gone from buying all Fords (around a dozen late-model Fords in my life time) to being absolutely certain I won't buy another one again. I'm not certain I can find a manufacturer that will actually stand behind their vehicle, but I know Ford won't, despite many, many hours of stress and explaining and dropping the car off and picking it up. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Ford won't fool me twice.
