Bought car w 12miles in may. I drive a lot, now October with 25k miles. The car leaked severe amounts of gravel dust. Had to have it sealed up. And now it's like the catilyc converter is plugged. Smelling fiercely in and out of the car of rotten eggs. Making me very sick. This is a 2017 brand new car. Love everything else about it. But no reason it should have these problems. Very angry about the situation.
I needed a daily driver to replace my previous 16 year old sedan without breaking the bank. My primary concerns are reliable and economical with a secondary for fun to drive. Hence, I found an anomaly, a manual transmission on the dealer lot took a little effort and Google to find. The 3cyl turbo is weak at low RPM's, but comes alive from 3000-6500 and can be quite fun. Pedal placement is atrocious for heal-toe shifting, but the after-market has a fix to realign the throttle pedal. Overall, the engine is raspy and fun at high rev's while economical at normal speeds. EcoBoost folks: You get Eco OR Boost... pick with your right foot! This engine isn't even broken in yet but has achieved amazing combined fuel mileage despite the occasional floggings.
So far the car has worked very well. Dont buy this car if you need the back seat. Its very tight. I drive 100 miles a day on interstate and my Gas mileage is 39.5. I have 27000 miles on it and no warranty issues. The car handles very good. Good comfort and quiet inside. The cell phone intagration is great. For older folks getting out is a little hard because it sits very low to the ground. All in all I have been very satified so far with this car.
Horrible experience this car is a piece of crap we have problems since we bought it. We bought it from the Dealer brand new. Problems with the transmission take it all the time and they always say nothing is wrong. Now they are suing Ford Motor Company because a lot of people having same issue but now you suppose have 100 miles warranty but so what, if you take in and they always said is nothing wrong with the car.
Ford has come a long way with this little car. This is my second Focus, and I can honestly say I cant complain about it at all. I'm middle aged so I don't need all the extra power, bells, and whistles. The fuel economy is excellent. Most of my driving is highway, and I average about 40.5 mpg. , less for city driving. The ride is comfortable especially for trips less than three hours. The car handles very well, and is quite nimble when getting into parking spaces. The 1.0 liter is adequate for my needs, but it lacks the power of my previous Focus which had the 2.0 . (By the way, the 2.0 also got great mileage). I would recommend this vehicle to anyone who needs a low cost, reliable sedan.
