Really good car still, 2017 ford focus SE

I am the second owner of this car since 2019. It has been excellent, never has had a problem. Super dependable easy to drive in town or highway. Have taken two 2,000 mile trips. Great and good mileage.



PIECE OF JUNK! this car breaks on a monthly basis, at least! would never buy one again, as i'm writing this review its been in the shop for 3 weeks now, clutch pack replacement, again after it was replaced not even 15k miles ago. check engine light is a common sight too. other than its reliability it isn't a bad car, drives decent when working correctly(rarely), and gets great fuel economy.


Fix or repair daily

Never buy a Ford again! Always a recall and No help or progress. Had to purchase a 2nd vehicle because Ford Motor company would not help fix major issues


Crappy transmissions- do not buy

Transmission went out after 63,777 miles. Doesn't go in reverse. The car is a piece of crap. Do not buy this car. It is not worth it.



My vehicle will be paid off soon. It seems problematic situationa are starting. I read about recalls for 2017 ford focus. I've received NO letters from Ford yet. There are several recalls for make. Model and year 2017.


Proceed With CAUTION! DPS6 Transmission is TRASH!

As far as drivability goes, I’d give the Focus a 5 out of 5! Unfortunately, there’s been major transmission issues with the later Focus models, 2015-forward. The DPS6 Automatic trans w/ manual clutch has a faulty TCM, which causes the transmission to shutter/skip from 1st-2nd gear. Other times, an engine light will appear making the car undrivable! Proceed with EXTREME CAUTION, when purchasing this vehicle.


2017 Ford Focus Titanium model failures

My 2017 ford focus continues to just die over night after I shut it off. When I go into the vehicle to restart the next day it’s dead. I have to call road side service for a jump to start the car. This is ridiculous. I’m 73 years old with major health issues, and I need a reliable car. I’m so upset that the dealership can’t fix this repeat problem. This is not a reliable car, company, nor responsive to a customers car issues. Ford motors does not stand by their products at all.


Do not buy this car multiple issues

4 years in and this car is toast. Multiple computer issues expensive repairs no wonder they quit making it 😡 I will never buy another Ford


Newest Car i've ever owned

This car is exactly what i needed when i limped my old ponitac into the dealer. Unlike my previous car this one is great on gas. It handles smoothly in my opinion. THe only downside i can think of is the trunk is small. even with the seats down in the sedan like i got.


Just purchased and happy so far

Just purchased for a replacement to a 300,000 mile escape, it’s the sel model so creature comforts are few but for the price it is optioned pretty well, the 4 cylinder was averaging 37 mpg on my 2 hour drive home with plenty of power, plenty of room inside do a small car for 2 people and maybe smaller kids in the back seat but it is a smooth ride for the small package. I will use it as a work vehicle to commute the 3 to 4 hours each way to work
