Reliable and Looks Nice !

2011 Ford Focus S

Problems: The only issue I have with my 2011 Ford Focus is the steering wheel is a little harder to turn than most cars. The best way to describe it is: it is heavy and it's best to use two hands at all times. (8.5/10) Performance: It performs very nicely and I have not had any issues with it stopping, making odd sounds, or breaking down in general for no reason. (10/10) Reliability: Very Reliable (10/10) Comfort & Features: The comfort of the car is not as great as I would like it to be, however, it is still nice especially if you are short like me (5' 3') because the driver's seat allows you to adjust it nicely. The back of the car is a little tighter than most cars, it is best to fit two people in the back compared to having all three seats filled. The trunk, however, is very spacious and big. I personally love the features in the car. It has bluetooth audio and it is easy to connect to it once you figure it out. The bluetooth allows you to answer calls, make calls, or decline calls. It also allows you to listen to audio on apps and skip songs or forward to a couple of seconds in. I believe this feature is very nice because if you have a long car ride and want to watch a movie with everyone, but only have one device, you can connect it to bluetooth and everyone can hear the movie. I personally use Spotify, and occasionally YouTube. Another nice feature is it has a USB Port, so you are able to connect your device to the car that way instead of bluetooth. Next to the USB Port it has two car plug-ins. I find this useful when my car is full and everyone needs to charge their phone at once. (9/10)

Best Friend on Four Wheels

2011 Ford Focus S

I adore my Ford Focus. I named her Charlotte. She was my first car at age 16 and continues to be my primary care. Very reliable, have never had problems with the ignition or the battery, EXCELLENT gas mileage (when I was a commuting student primarily highway driving, got 39 miles/gallon). Is not great in ice or snow, gets stuck easily, even in the driveway. The wind tends to catch it on blustery days and tries to drag it off the road. Car is slow to accelerate. Motor is a little on the noisy side.

Battery life low, overall rating high

2011 Ford Focus S

the car is a lovely red color, runs very nicely and is very easy to drive. There is a lot of space for storage and there are plenty of cup holders for guests. The battery tends to die more quickly than other vehicles I have used in the past but I don't have very many negative stories with this car because it is reliable and comfortable as my primary vehicle.

An overall reliable car with heated seats!

2011 Ford Focus S

2011 Ford Focus is very reliable. In the 5 years since owning it, no major things to fix other than basic maintenance and tire replacements. One complaint is that the car's exterior parts have always sounded loud/squeaky, almost like the parts sound cheap and you can hear any type of friction when the car goes over any kind of road that is not smooth.

Amazing gas mileage and a very dependable car.

2011 Ford Focus S

Rolls back on hills but other than that it gets great gas mileage. Compact so fits in a parking space real easy. Large trunk for hauling. Plenty of cup holders and storage space for all your things. It has an option for Sirius FM radio and CD player that hold like 3 cds in it.

Ford Focus 2011 Reliable Vehicle, manual transmission

2011 Ford Focus S

Really enjoy driving this vehicle. I haven't had any issues with it. I noticed this model had some transmission issues with the automatic. I purchased a manual transmission so no issues there. Plenty of trunk space. Pretty good mileage. All around great car.

- Mike F

Pretty good vehicle, with a full tank of gas you can go about 400 miles

2011 Ford Focus S

Compact, amazing mileage, comfortable seats. Do not recommend for really long travels as the car is compact and can get uncomfortable being cramped up especially with little children. Lots of trunk space, has a great stereo system, connects to Bluetooth
