I got my car in march 2018 brand new. I felt shuttering then taking off and when I am turning into the highway it will also make a rattling noice. I took it in last year in April and they put in a new transmission. it didn’t work. I’m currently on my way to take it back right now. The first time I took it they(sunrise ford) didn’t even open the hood. The man said it “wasn’t bad enough yet” yet ??? And then he continued to tell me that his wife had this car and that there is a problem with that whole year with focus’s. He recommended that we pay it of and trade it in as soon as possible. This car is just getting worse and it is scaring me.

Love the size and performance.

The Focus is the perfect size car for me. It has plenty of power and the gas mileage is amazing. LOVE the color! (Lightning Blue.)

Very reliable and good handling car.

This car was very reliable and fun to drive. It looks like the inside would be small but there is room in the front seats and the back seats. It’s a fun turbocharged car and it handles great.
