2013 Ford Focus SE 2.0 from North America
Will never buy another Ford
Sunroof opened on its own; had to be adjusted.
Center console rattled.
Engine idled rough on the first start of the day.
Transmission shifted rough.
Ergonomics are bad.
Infotainment system glitches.
Averaged 31 MPG on 87 octane fuel.
No wind noise, but quite a lot of road noise.
Uncomfortable seat bolsters on the bottom of the seat.
Not good for cornering; the turning radius is too big.
Stereo sounded great, but faded out for a second sporadically when using XM and USB.
Navigation system has pretty display, however it is hard to use compared to an inexpensive Garmin Nuvi. Wouldn't work for a while one day, too hard to find points of interest, and entering addresses has to be exact. Can't type in main street if there is a north and south main, etc.
Ford service department at both dealerships I went to lied about what work they performed.
The car rattled like a 10 year old Pinto.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Owned several Fords in my life. My luck with them is about 50/50... half were great and half were out and out lemons and heart breakers. There didn't seem to be any middle ground with them... at least the ones I had. Maybe that's why so many people are so passionate and loyal to the brand... and so many dislike them on the other hand...
