Ford redesigned focus failed
January 7, 2019
Got used at 30k, from type S. Immediately noticed driver seat uncomfortable for driver on long or short rides, short racing seats i was told. Cloth seats originally looked good, but any water left station marks. No bluetooth, no cruise control, front windows power, back manual, 100% rear seat fold. Looked great, however was uncomfortable to driver. Driver's rear passenger often felt cramped to get in. Fuel economy declined after air filter replaced. Center console not built for driver use - no storage cubby, power charged plug in front of drinks which often struck and unplugged charger, storage space between front seats more towards rear seat passengers, and six ford plug in rear seat area (needed for after market bluetooth device). Trunk space smaller than previous model years. Body size larger than previous model years. Replaced transmission module and clutch at 70k. Traded in for no value on newer car of other brand, got 5 more recalls in mail next day. Baylor locking, fuel gauge reading wrong at 90k.
