My experience with ford focus.

My ford focus is very reliable. I have had few issues with it and have driven it for four years now. It gets thirty seven miles per gallon. I love the sunroof and that it syncs with my phone. It is a very smooth ride and handles very well. I wish it had a little more power for pulling out into moving traffic. Mine has less than one hundred thousand miles and is still going strong. I have had the oil changed regularly. The only work I have had done to it besides routine maintenance was when a hose clip came loose and the transmission fluid all spilled out. I replaced the hose clamp and refilled the fluid. Finding a replacement hose clamp was a little difficult. I had to go to the ford dealership as it wasn't available at local auto part stores. I plan to drive the car until it falls apart as to not have a car payment again. I would recommend ford focus to anyone. When shopping for a new car I thought I would prefer a Honda or Toyota but the ford focus had very good reviews and I feel comfortable in it.

My 2010 ford focus is very reliable and after 8 years, I am still very happy.

My 2010 ford focus has been so reliable for me. It has never had any performance issues in the 8 years I have owned it. It is very comfortable for me to drive even when driving very long distances. It has a fairly large trunk and there is usually plenty of room for whatever I need to bring with me. The back seat is large enough for a couple of adults to sit comfortably, though it is definitely not super roomy back there. The only complaint I would have for this car is that over time rocks and small debris have been kicked up and hit near the back wheel well. The back wheel well comes out slightly from the rest of the body of the car along where the back doors close and so over time this area has been hit by debris which has caused the paint to wear down there and I have to keep repainting it so that it does not rust. . Overall, this has been a great car for me and I hope I still have some years left with it.

My car is small, compact, cheaper on gas than most vehicles, also looks decent.

I have a 2010 Ford Focus. I do not want to complain because it gets me from point A to point B. I appreciate the fact that it is economical and less expensive on gas than most vehicles. I have not had any complications so far. The only complaints I have is that it sits too low to the ground, which makes the seats too low to the ground and difficult to get in and out of. It makes my back and knees cramp after a short period of time of sitting in the car. I must admit this is the reason why I prefer larger vehicles. The Ford Focus' performance on the highway can be scary especially when it rains. As the wind blows the car seems to sway which makes it harder to control and therefore even unsafe to drive on the highway. Also, like all other vehicles, the Ford Focus is indeed overpriced. Overall, my Ford Focus is the only vehicle I have at this time. One car is better than no car.
