I say it is a solid car. Its quite quick, fuel efficient and teh 4 banger is shared between the st and the rs ( of course the higher performance models have additional stuff that gets tthem more power). The car is super comfortable, a bit low for my 6 foot 3 frame, and the manual trans is so smooth.

2 new Focus, will never buy a Ford again !!!!!!!!

Owned a 2014 with a auto trans that bucks like a bronco after multiple attempts to get it fixed. 2.2 L motor I believe, very good motor but the trans issues were horrible. Traded it in on a 2018 sedan SE with a better auto transmission,not realizing it had a 1.0 3 cylinder engine till I got it home. OK, I guess well give it a try. Transmission doing fine at 48000 miles but the motor has leaked oil from two weeks after we bought it. Been to the dealership for repairs multiple times to fix oil leaks. The 2014 was my fist new car purchase ever with the 2018 being my 2nd. I will never buy a Ford again !
