2017 Ford Focus Hatchback SE 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6AM)


Review

A lot of transmission complaints are from the 2012 models. I also owned one of those until buying the 2017. The 2012 was in the shop 4 times for transmission trouble. My new Ford Focus is wonderful in all respects and I expect it will stay that way based on its performance thus far.

2017 Ford Focus Hatchback SEL 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6AM)


Review

Great little car for the money. I currently have 14000 miles on my ruby red SEL hatchback and I am very happy so far . Driving to my daughters in Virginia from New Jersey I have gotten between 43 and 47 miles per gallon . The computer is usually one and a half to 2 miles per gallon too much I use the odometer. I previously had a suburban this was a big change and I was surprised how good the ride and comfort were on the highway , I don't drive the car fast I am very conservative with it . I have also driven stick shifts for years and the shifting of this transmission does not bother me at all. I give it time to shift and have no problems for me it's a great little car ! One thing I would add is that when I come to a stop, I watch the rpms, and wait for it to be in neutral before taking off. In traffic I don't creep forward. I wait and give the car in front of me a little distance before I move up thereby not slipping clutches. I believe this helps.

Review

I have owned my car, brand new since April 2017 and I have had numerous issues with the windshield wipers getting stuck in the up/angled position while driving. The engine sputters when accelerating and down shifting. The radio has required 3 updates in the short time I have owned the car. I was told that the wipers "might have had too much water on them to work" or that "the windshield was not wet enough" I hit a curb due to this malfunction. This car is not worth the hassles. Glad I purchased extended warranty.

Review

I got the Focus SEL sport all black with black rims and led dead lights. The car looks awesome and has amazing handeling of it. Used to have a Ford Fusion and the difference is very much. Great cabin space. I enjoy every ride with this focus even to go to the market! Love this and I know all you will too!

Review

Good car for the money. Working with the dealership was as expected, shady at times. Ended up getting the car for $16060 total including tax and all, out the door price. Good luck.
