I loved the look of this car, and it drove well for the price.... or so i thought... for about a month. It turns out that Ford put out a lemon AND KNOWS IT!! They just bought mine back.
The transmission on these cars goes through clutches (on automatics, none-the-less..... which are NOT supposed to have clutches!). The reason is that Ford tried to make some kind of new fan-dangled adaptive transmission thing and messed up on design.
My brand spakin' new, automatic 2015 Ford Focus with all the bells and whistles (leather interior, mood lights, sunroof, etc.) went through 2 clutches in 1 year. ON AN AUTOMATIC, YA'LL .... an AUTOMATIC! I started having problems within 1 month!!! The car overheats on hills for no reason. The transmission is just simply no good.... Or maybe it just wasn't meant for the hills of San Fransisco, IDK.
Other than that, the car was great! The exterior color was really nice and the exterior design is cute. Not as cute as GM's cars (IMO), but the car is absolutely LOVELY inside. Back seat is totally comfortable (and i have long legs).
Too bad, really... But, NO TRANSMISSION, NO CAR DOGGONEIT!!!
