Excellent Performance, MPG, Transmission Problems

I am reviewing for the 2016 Ford Focus S.E. with hatchback. Engine performance, pick-up, and MPG are excellent! The car overall is an excellent choice. I have had very few mechanical problems with it. MAKE SURE WHEN YOU BUY THIS CAR THE TRANSMISSION IS GOOD. I made the mistake of buying it when the transmission was bad! Ford doesn't know how to make good transmissions for the Focus. DO NOT set MyKey! It WILL cause problems! Even with the dealer key I didn't see the MyKey option after I had set it once, and I had to completely delete MyKey from the system altogether using my computer. The remote start battery wears out quickly! You can only remote start it a few times before it goes out. I recommend this car, but DO NOT try to let someone sell it to you with a bad transmission, before or after the test drive!

Love My Focus!!!

I love my 2016 Ford Focus Titanium, I love how it looks sporty and gets up to speed pretty quickly.it’s very comfortable to ride in. Reliable and trustworthy! Great little car with all the bells and whistles!


Nice small car.

Great little car that's great on gas. If you're going to drive it in the winter I would recommend snow tires. The only reason I would not recommend it is because they have had issues with their automatic transmissions. Mine was acting up so I took it to the dealer. So far, so good. No current issues with it.


Do your research

I have had a lot of trouble with this vehicle. Ending with a blown transmission due to a issue ford new about when it was put on the market. I am disappointed.


Always something wrong

I’ve only owned Ford focuses my entire life, and every single model always has something wrong. The current one I have is a 2016 and the transmission blew in 2020. Cost $1400 to fix, even though there was an open law suit Ford would not compensate for damages. Now there’s recalls on the purge valve and the welding. Every Ford car I’ve had has had transmission issues as well. Time for me to trade in after $1000 in repairs in 2021.


Not bad for the short time I've owned it

Took the vehicle over with a few problems gonna get them fixed the car deserves that gas mileage is great almost 40 mpg ,comfortable ,great design , nice audio system ac/heat work great wish it had a moon roof to open


Great car

This car is great on gas has the hp to get up quickly. Comfortable inside plenty of room love the car is all I need to say


Newest car I have ever owned

Very classy very comfortable it is awesome on gas. I also like the hands free voice control. The back up camera is nice also. Love my car


Most reliable car I’ve ever owned

It had all of the accessories needed and great on gas. It has comfort plus an excellent sound system. Transmission is very reliable plus the features are all necessary, and I love it!
