2013 Ford Focus SE Hatch 2.0
Lawsuit waiting to happen
Transmission replaced after numerous visits to the dealer complaining of dangerous behavior. 33000 miles, July 2015.
- Was told the new trans is a newer part number, however it's starting to show the same symptoms as before within 5k miles.
Driver's seat belt won't retract. Replaced July 2015. It's doing it again.
Like the way it looks inside and out, and it handles well on the highway.
I really wanted to like this car, but I can't wait to get rid of it. Interior door panels and dashboard rattle worse than any car I've ever driven. Anything below 45 degrees out and it sounds like the car is going to rattle apart.
The Microsoft Sync infotainment makes no sense; Ford has not updated this software, not even once.
The transmission is a complete disaster and I'm embarrassed to have to explain to passengers why it's acting like this. This transmission is an embarrassment, and I have no clue how Ford has not seen the largest class action suit in history. I can't wait for it to happen. Everyone I know with this car and the Fiestas have had the same transmission issues, or are already on the 2nd or 3rd replacement. Do not buy this generation!!! Thanks for the garbage Ford.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
