2013 Ford Focus Short Review

As of thus far, I have not had any major problems with my Ford Focus vehicle. It has been previously owned before me and I have had it for 2 years now. As a college student that lives far away from home, it has wonderful gas mileage. With normal maintenance and upkeep, it has lasted me over several lengthy miles of work-travel. Reliability is top-notch; my car has never broken down or has not even had a flat tire (*knocks on wood*). Its performance has opted further than any of my expectations. Its various comforts and features is really great and cute for a tiny car such as this one. I love the Hands-Free Bluetooth options that connects to my phone, so I can make phone calls just by voice-command when driving. The electronic, dash display is really helpful when there happens to be anything wrong with my vehicle (mostly low tire pressure). And the navigation system that keeps track of all my miles, MPG, speed, direction, system check, and trip information. The cars seats are another interesting feature. The seats can casually move back and forth, up and down, to adjust your viewing needs. As well as the steering wheel. The carpet made seats are very comfy and are slightly shaped like a high-level, mesh, office chair; along with the back seats. The trunk of the car is a little small (as due for a tiny car) but it is great to have all the extra 'emergency' tools, underneath the flap in the back for a 'flat-tire' change or jumper cables.

Ford Focus comfortable and affordable.

My 2013 Ford Focus has been fairly reliable. The only issue I have had with the car were covered under warranty. Everything is user friendly. Changing the clock is so easy! My past vehicle would require me opening up the user manual. The hands free calling is also a nice feature. The transmission updates really smoothed out the ride, so shifting of the dual clutch is barely noticeable. The car looks and drives comfortably. It has excellent gas mileage so commuting is not so costly. I bought this car while in college and it was great size for mostly driving alone or two people. It was nice to have the backseat for groceries or the occasional additional passengers. Now that I have a car seat in the back there is no room in the front passenger seat. I'll definitely be going with a larger model in the future. I do plan to buy another Ford vehicle. I have had a great experience with customer service at Ford dealerships. They offer comfortable, aesthetically pleasing, and affordable vehicles.

Back to the black Ford Focus.

I do not have any issues with my car. It gets great gas mileage in the city and on the highway, so it helps when I have to drive more for work. It has heated cloth seats and black more unique rims on it. Newer tires were put on last year and has less than 60000 miles on it. I've owned it for almost 3 years. It is all black on the outside and on the inside. It has a very sleek look to it and makes for a great car for young adults that are on the go and love to go places! Has great performance when it comes to acceleration and taking turns. Has ecoboost which is a great feature to have also on newer vehicles. It also has a USB port and an AUX port, as well as a Bluetooth feature to connect your phone wirelessly. All features work great, plus you are able to charge your phone without having to have another part to plug into your car. It also drives quite well in the winter when the driver is a bit more cautious and is able to use the breaks correctly.

2013 Ford focus titanium has incredible interior, especially with the extra packages included make the car perfect! And example: heated seats, interior lighting, sunroof, alloy wheels, navigation and much more. The two-toned leather seat colors are my favorite part of the car!

2013 Ford focus titanium is very comfortable, stylish and impressive. I have all packages including sunroof, navigation, sports package, heated seats, interior lighting, etc. the 2013 and 2012 model I believe have a few transmission issues. This is the only problem I have with the car. I have had my clutch replaced 2013 Ford focus titanium is very comfortable, stylish and impressive. I have all packages including sunroof, navigation, sports package, heated seats, interior lighting, etc. the 2013 and 2012 model I believe have a few transmission issues. This is the only problem I have with the car. I have had my clutch replaced once already through Ford And within three months it was shuddering again. I've never had any major issues with that except it's just annoying. I would not recommend the 2012 or 2013 model is because of this. However if you get a great deal on one, it's been a super awesome car and I love it!

Started off as a great car, now I am regretting the decision of having bought it. Too many problems keep happening.

At first I really liked my car. After a few months of owning it there was a recall on the door locks which they fixed for free, however they did not tell me there was a recall I just saw it online by chance and inquired. After 2 years of owning it my transmission is going out and the clutch had to be replaced which was free because of an extended warranty the ford company is giving since a lot of the 2013 versions are all having the same problem. Again the company did not tell me this, my car just stopped accelerating suddenly and I was almost stranded in the Arizona canyon. I just got my car back a couple of weeks ago and the same problem is happening all over again even though the mechanic assures me he fixed it. I bought it way over priced so I am stuck with this car for another couple of years until I can get the payoff amount down to a reasonable number then I will be buying a different car.

Good purchase for someone who needs not much space.

The 2013 Ford Focus is the perfect size for someone who does not have to travel with anyone else. The version of the Ford Focus currently owned by me comes equipped with a rear hatchback. This feature gives someone like myself the perfect room for everything I need to store in my trunk. The car runs smooth like butter. I have been lucky enough to have had next to no problems with the vehicle. The only issue I have had was this particular year is the fact that there was a recall on the transmission and I had the face that when it failed. In my personal opinion, this is a fairly reliable car for a single person. It is on the smaller end of the Ford car models, but is reliable. This Ford Focus comes equipped with SiriusXM, which is helpful when you become tired of listening to radio commercials. The way the center console looks you may be able to purchase a model that comes equipped with a GPS.

Good car with minor issues, will get you there safely!

The car is a smooth ride and has great turning capabilities. Issues with the car can only really be found when going up hills. In this situation, the car will slip backwards if stopped and then driven again. Additionally, you will hear some grinding in the engine. Another problem can be found with the interactive electronics in the car. While the radio and its display work well, the aux is hard to do with a charging cable and I have never been able to get the Bluetooth capabilities to work, but it must be noted that I have a current phone and this may contribute. Another nice feature of the car is found within my hatchback edition, which has plenty of space in the trunk. Furthermore, the blind spot mirrors included with the vehicle help to keep me safe and I love them!

Unreliable Piece of Trash

This car is trash. It drives like it's an aluminum toy, and constantly has issues. I have had the transmission serviced three times in the two years I've owned the car. The entire entertainment/sound system not only stopped working, but it lets out ear-piercing screeching static noise all the time even when it's completely off. The plastic interior panels fall off and won't go back on. Even with fresh alignment the car will not drive straight for more than a second. The visibility is horrible, lots of blind spots in front and back. The windows have a mind of their own and often will not roll down. The seats push my head forward uncomfortably. I got a great deal on this car and now I know why; I highly regret buying it and can't wait to trade it in.

Ford Focus: superstar on the highway.

I honestly think the Ford Focus is the best car that I have ever owned or driven- considering that I have only owned one other car in my 18 years of life. It is amazing on gas; I can last about 175 miles on the highway going 60-70mph without the gas needle moving off of "f". It does not particularly like the mountains (what kind of sedan would?) But it is fine in the city. I wish I would have gotten the hatchback but the normal se model is just as nice. It has a completely navigational dash and plenty of storage in the glove compartment and between the front seats storage. I would recommend this car for anyone who has to travel long distances, who is short on money for gas, or for a first car. My family is definitely happy with the result.

My 2013 Ford Focus review.

This car has its moments. Its very fuel efficient, which I love. It costs about 25 dollars to fill the tank and the vehicle gets about 40-50 miles to a gallon, so I can drive at least 450 miles on a full tank. I have had a few issues with the car, but they are all small. The backup alarm does not go off until it is much too late and you have already hit something. The check engine light also comes on about once every other month, I always get the codes checked, and then when the mechanic goes to fix the engine he finds that there is nothing wrong with it. Bluetooth pairing with a phone is much more complicated than it should be. I have had my transmission start to slip once or twice, and the car is not great for dirt roads.

Problem upon problem and no value to it

This is a very cheaply made vehicle for the price that was paid. Body is very flimsy and fenders all unattached from frame. Entire bottom liner has fallen off. Carpet and upholstery is very cheap and difficult to clean and maintain. I have had a lot of transmission problems and recalls. Most recently, I have had serious problems with fuel system and tanks, having problems with keeping engine running when filling with gas. It shudders and suddenly turns off. May or may not crank for bike. Door locks are crazy as I never know when it will lock itself even with keys in ignition. Locked me out too many times. Stuck with it because ford dealer would not offer me anything for this mess.

Resolved transmission issues but overall positive experience with Ford Focus.

I currently have a 2013 Ford Focus. I began leasing my Ford Focus at the beginning of October 2017. Over the last year, my experience has been overall very positive. Initially my vehicle had a couple transmission problems which affected the acceleration of the vehicle, however all of those problems were covered under warranty through the dealership where I got the car and were fixed. Since those issues have been resolved, I have had no issues with the vehicle. My Focus in extremely comfortable to drive for long commutes and drives very smoothly. I really enjoy the sync system. It makes switching between songs on my music device quick and easy.

- Jordan R

A good car, but not a great car.

Overall, I think this is a solid, reliable car. However, I have had some issues with it such as, transmission problems that cause the car to stutter a bit when accelerating, engine troubles and a handful of other things. With that said, a lot of these larger issues, I hold the dealership I purchased the vehicle from at least partially responsible. I don't believe they properly disclosed the condition of the car, though that is just my opinion. Otherwise the vehicle is compact, easy to park, gets decent gas mileage and has been a great car for my purposes, and as a person living in a major metropolitan area, it's a great car for city life.

My Reliable 2013 Ford Focus

I've had a few transmission issues. I even had to have my transmission control module replaced a couple of months ago. However, after the repairs were completed, my car has been running great. My car is extremely reliable and great on gas which was a big reason why i bought the car in the first place. My car is comfortable enough for me and my wife and is spacious enough for us but if you are a taller person, I would definitely recommend getting a bigger car. I have bluetooth which is my favorite feature of the car. Overall, I've been very happy with my car and hope to keep it for another 4 or 5 years if possible.

2013 Ford Focus Still Great in 2019

My car is a hatchback so it has been very helpful when I have moved a few times since I bought it (I had it in college and now in grad school, so lots of moving). The seats are very comfortable, perfect for long drives (recently drove 9 hrs). I wish the sound system was a little better when using the Bluetooth for the phone calls. The volume level isn't loud enough if you are on a highway (doesn't happen a lot, but y'know, long drives). Maintenance is pretty easy on this car and the systems let you know if you are due for something (wiper fluid levels, oil changes, new brakes needed etc). Highly recommend this car!

- Pamela L

It has no gas cap and it is also equipped with sync for the people on the run.

The 2013 ford Focus is a very stylish economy car. In hugs the road as I drive curvy roads of the Midwest not to mention its 30 miles a gallon. It's what us less fortunate like to call a 5 dollar car 5 dollars will get you there and back. With roomy comfortable cloth seats automatic 6 speed transmission a car drivers dream. How ever with the roomy front the space in the back is less desired very crowded for a family of five. It has excellent trunk space enough room for all my camping and fishing supplies for weekend out on the river. I has a nice body flow and really is popular car for the times.

ford focus fail- dual clutch system is dangerous

there's not much good I can say about this car. the dual clutch system makes the car shudder as it accelerates making for scary dashes out into traffic. I do not feel like this car is able to get me out of a sticky situation if I need it to get up and go. the inside is moderately comfortable, except the dashboard isn't intuitive, your speed is off to the side and not digital like my 2010 golf. the instrument panel is dominated by this phone-like set up of numbers. it has a decent amount of cargo space but we still had to get a roof rack for camping if you want more than two people in the car.

Ford Focus hatchback recall after recall

The Ford Focus has been nothing but trouble. Several recalls have been subjected to my car, including transmission and steering wheel issues. For the last three years I have had the Ford dealership that I purchased the car from work on the transmission issue. It seems like clockwork that the transmission fails again, making the car shutter or completely stale out. You expect the problem to be fixed the first time but no, as I said before my transmission issue has been worked on 3 times. So unfortunately a once liked company of Ford will be losing my business when purchasing a new car.

- Anne R

Squished backseat bummer.

I have the Ford Focus se and overall I really enjoy the car. It rides nice and I get excellent gas mileage. The front has decent room but the back seats are very cramped. Even for being a midsize car it seems awfully small. That wasn't something I thought to look at when I bought it. A rear facing car seat only fits with a front seat as close to the dash as possible. I do not think there is anyway a family of 4 with young kids or even a family of 3 with a young child would be able to own this car. I can manage since I am single but it is hard if I ever have to drive friends around.

- Elise S

Fun and reliable, but cheaply made.

My 2013 Ford Focus hatchback is a lot of fun to drive! I am very happy with the way it drives and it seems to be a reliable vehicle so far. My only complaint about my car is the overall quality. I guess you truly do get what you pay for. The wheel bearings have each broken twice and the screen on the dash freezes up in cold weather. The windows also fog up like crazy when it rains and there is seemingly no way to get airflow directly to them so I end up using a towel to clear them off. I really do like my Focus, but there are definitely reminders that it is a relatively cheap car.

The Ford fusion SE 2013 is a fairly consistent vehicle with electrical issues.

The 2013 Ford fusion SE is a pretty good car that is fairly comfortably has pretty decent gas mileage and overall is reliable in most aspects. The one drawback I find with this vehicle is that the electrics in the car seem to have a tendency to malfunction, for example the dash indicator that shows fuel economy broke shortly into my ownership of this car and the AC continues to cut on randomly while driving among other small electrical issues. Otherwise I don't have any real complaints with my daily drive and would recommend this vehicle for other people's use.

2013 Ford Focus review: highly recommend.

The Focus does incredibly well on gas mileage, even with all the hills and mountain tops I drive on to and from work. The average is roughly 35 to 36 mpg. As for comfort, it is a perfect fit for me. Not too big, nor too small. It helped me move from Colorado to New Mexico, and eventually California with ease. The only real issue I have noticed is with the transmission and how it stutters from time to time. It is a manual transmission completely run by a Microsoft computer chip. A recall notice came out for it recently, so it should be fixed relatively soon.

- Hannah W

Compact, fast, and pack full of technical amenities.

Nice, small compact car. I am only 5 foot 5 inches tall so the cabin is fine. However, when I have taller and/or robust friends ride with me, one can obviously see how cramped the front can get. The focus is filled with a lot of electric pulses such as heated seats and voice activation. However, the voice activation does glitch. The rear camera and perimeter sensors are nice features. But this is a rare occurrence. For a small car, it does have some speed along with a speed shift for the automatic version. Overall, i am very pleased with my purchase.

- Chris C

2013 Ford Focus: safe, reliable, and fuel efficient.

The car itself is good. It gets me from point A to B. It is quite fuel efficient and that is a huge plus for me since I tend to drive quite often. I bought it used. Sometimes it does a strange jerk-like motion but it is not too concerning. The car seems like a car that would be driven by a mother of three, therefore; making it easily able to blend in and look safe and a bit boring which is good if you do not want to get attention from police. I really enjoy the sync part of the car. It allows me to connect my phone to the car via Bluetooth and it is great.

Reliable and Easy Car - Great Gas Mileage

My car has great gas mileage, I get about 32 miles per gallon. It has a capless gas tank. Overall it is easy to drive as an automatic. The back seat folds down easily to allow more room for the trunk. However, my one complaint is the CD player doesn't allow you to manually put in CDs, so last week I went to put one in and the CD got stuck. It doesn't register the CD to play but also doesn't let me manually eject it - since it only has a digital button. However, I normally only use the Bluetooth and Radio capabilities instead.

- Margaret W

Nice small, sporty, daily driver.

I really like the comfort and features of the vehicle: the leather seats, sunroof, Bluetooth connectivity, heated seats in the winter, etc.. It was purchased prior to extending our family however and is feeling somewhat cramped. It is fine for when I am going somewhere alone. The biggest issue we have had is the transmission stuttering. Sometimes it will not do it at all but more often than not, the car stutters at some point during the drive, usually when starting from a stopped position. It can be very frustrating.

- Linda P

Better than others, but not perfect.

I like the Focus. It is definitely better than the last compact car I drove, which would be a Chevy Cobalt. It is a big improvement. The Focus handles well in the wind in rain, which is a big plus for me. I drive at least 800 miles a week and I haven't had an issue yet. The reliability is something I really value. I have some issues with the Sync system. Mine never connects correctly. Every now and then it will connect and play what is on my phone but rarely. It is also pretty cramped (which is to be expected).

- Jami O

I’d recommend this vehicle to anyone it is a good car.

This car is an outstanding everyday car. It is good on gas and great mileage. The AUX and USB cord in the middle console is amazing. It helps keep all the loose wires out of the way. This model of the car also includes a sunroof, and it has lights to indicate if the doors are locked or not instead of visible buttons. The only problem about the 2013 Ford focus is the backseats are not very spacious so not ideal for adult guests. Overall I'd recommend this vehicle it is a very reliable car.

- Bill S

The transmission is the 'Focus'.

I love the sporty style of this car as well as the great mileage I get with it. I have had mechanical problems since I bought it, including at least 4 recalls. The biggest issue has been with the transmission and Ford is currently involved in a class action lawsuit because of it. The car shimmies when accelerating and it feels as if the automatic transmission is not going to shift. Bluetooth technology works well, I was unable to set it up but my twenty something daughter did so easily.

- Barbara H

Not enough power but really nice interior

Although my car is the super loaded model, that has the nice leather, heated seats and all the navigation things, I feel like the actual drive is not the greatest. I especially dislike how when I am stopped on a hill waiting for a light, the car struggles to go forward once I try to advance, and it's constantly turning on the traction sign. I know it is a small car with a small engine not equipped for a lot of adventurous driving, but it's not great even in the regular in town hills.

- Cindy P

Almost perfect - transmission isn't always reliable (rarely, warranty covered)

I love my car. It looks sleek and the company offered a liquid repelling seat protection. It's comfortable, it can sync with phones, USB outlet and two car outlets (one in the center console and one in the backseat), good on gas, doesn't take much to fill, spacious trunk, there's a sunroof and even a special compartment for your sunglasses. The only issue I've had is with the transmission but it hasn't been a real issue in a over a year now. That's the only issue. Perfect otherwise.

Ford Focus 2013- with moonroof and fun lighting inside.

I have had my car for the four years. Seats are super comfy and gas mileage is decent. However, I have had a few problems with the transmission (recall on car) and I've also had problems with the moonroof. If I open the moonroof it does not close sometimes, it does a bounce back and I have to 'reset' it with the car manual. Trunk is spacious for being such a small car and the lighting on the inside I am able to change to color of. Fun to do depending on my mood or the time of year.

- Shelby B

There are lights that can change color on the inside.

My car stutters really bad, especially on long trips. There's been quite a few recalls on my vehicle since I've had it. Ford has not fixed the stutter that my vehicles transmission has. I do love the size of my car for just daily driving. It's the first car I've owned on my own and it's been mostly great. I wouldn't recommend this vehicle to someone who drives a lot or long distances. Although gas mileage is pretty good, the longer you drive the vehicle, the more it stutters.

- Emily R

Love this car’s acceleration!

I really love my 2013 Ford Focus hatchback. It has such great acceleration; when the traffic light turns green, zoom! Off I go. The back seats can fold down to expand the storage area in the back of the car. I also love the moon roof. It can be opened part-way or the whole way, and it also has a setting where the moon roof opens just a inch (great for fresh air). I enjoy the nice details inside the car. It is truly a pleasure to drive my 2013 Ford Focus hatchback.

- Cherie M

It is important that you keep this vehicle maintained especially if you have the st or the rs model focus especially keep up on the oil and fluid changes since these two models are turbocharged

I have a 2013 Ford focus I love all the built in features it has. I like the built in navigation system especially with the hands free voice control system. The 2nd thing I is it's a very small car so it is really easy to park especially if you're parallel parking. The thing I would like to see improved is for such a small vehicle you would think it would be a little better on fuel but have to take into consideration it only has like a 12 gallon fuel tank.

- Alan L

Take a ride with Ford reliability

Reliable vehicle with excellent gas mileage! Standard transmission. Roomy trunk and front seat area; however, back seat can be a tight squeeze. Cold weather package is great on cold New England mornings. Does well in inclement weather with all season tires. Appreciate the 'warning features' like low tire pressure, low washer fluid, etc. Bluetooth media player can be spotty at times (seems to be when it's very cold). In general, great car for the price point.

- Lauren D

It's good on gas. The interior looks really nice. The radio sounds really well.

The 2013 Ford Focus has a dual clutch transmission, and that seems to be the biggest complaint of this model. It will sometimes stutter when revving up or it will roll back if on a hill. I also had to have the transmission replaced and it was under warranty. There was a recall on door handles, and one of the buttons on the steering wheel needs to be replaced after it broke. A wire in the trunk was severed, probably from wear and tear of opening and closing.

- Michelle C

Decent car, shuttering is an annoying though.

Love this car although with technology advances I wish there was more. There's two USB ports inside the center which is tiny and a basic radio. The car does shutter as it is a semi automatic from what I have been told so you will hear and feel the car change transmission quite often. Cloth seats are nice for Florida weather. Trunk is large. Resetting the oil change light is weird as you have to push the gas and break with the battery on for like 20 seconds.

- Tyler H

Overall a great affordable daily driver.

Pro's: My car payments are cheap. It's great on gas mileage and inexpensive to fill up. Nice compact car which is helpful when your not too good at parking. Con's: There are known transmission issues. Personally had it repaired twice since I've owned it. Getting into the third year since I've owned it I've started to have minor problems like coolant leak, false emission codes, tail lights seem to burn out quickly. Overall it's a great affordable car.

- Julianne V

it's an awesome, modern looking car with a couple problems under the hood.

I love the look of my car both interior and exterior. But my car has had transmission issues since I got it. It's never left me sir but it has issues and is shaky. I love how modern it is though, the look inside is slick and classy. It has Bluetooth hook up and phone syncing which I love. It also push to start which is convenient. I always get complimented on it and its lasted me 6 years with few problems unlike most cars. It also does really well on gas.

- A H

This a good car in weather. The problem has been the manufacturing recall

I love my ford focus. The only trouble with this durable car has been the frequent recalls for stopping and starting. I have also had to do a class action lawsuit in order to recover damages and repairs for the car pressing forward too fast after being in a stop position. The parts were recalled, and this problem with the car was proven to be a manufacturing problem. After the lawsuit, I was able to have the car fixed, and I still love my ford focus.

2013 Ford Focus- Overview of the car. Danielle Walker

Overall I love my car. It gets good gas mileage. Not to many mechanical problems. One thing I didn't like was a couple of recalls I had to get on my car. My car does really good in the snow. My car has a nice feature likes a backup camera and a sunroof. It has leather seats and seat warmers. It has a large trunk space for storage. The radio is all touch screen and navigation to get you from place to place. Overall, the car is great and works great.

- Danielle W

It is a wonderful car with many great features.

I drive a 2013 Ford Focus hatchback. I have had a few problems but those have been due to something I did. It performs well and gets fantastic gas mileage. Super reliable I usually never have to worry. It very comfortable and since it's a hatchback it has plenty of space. I love the Bluetooth feature. The keypad right on the dash like a phone. All in all in it a wonderful car that has done me very well these last 2 years that I have had it.

- Julie O

When on the freeway and maxes out at 80 mph I feel unsafe cars pushing to pass.

The car is comfortable and peppy for a 4 cylinder. A recall was sent out 3 month ago and dealer still does not have the parts. The gas mileage is not as good as I would expect. The adjuster to move the seat forward is hard to reach so if driver is taller than me I have trouble moving the seat back up. I do not like the programming of the radio stations. Seems like the car has its favorites and is difficult to program what I want.

- Chris W

My Ford focus, looks great, drives better!

The 2013 Ford focus se is a great driver’s car, peppy 4 cylinder turbo, terrific handling, and a fun to drive. The biggest issue is with a design flaw in the transmission of the 2013 model year. My local dealer handled all issues as hassle free as possible. Ford provided a free rental car while my focus was being serviced, and increased the length of the factory warranty. Overall, I have been very satisfied with my focus se.

- Roland B

It is a black 4-door sedan with a grey interior.

I know that this model Focus has problems with the transmission and you can definitely feel them. For people like me that struggle with income, this is incredibly hard to get fixed and it has caused me some worry should it go out. The gas reader is frustratingly inaccurate at times. I will be told that I have, say, 78 miles to empty and 5 minutes later, it reads that I have 25 miles to empty. It is this drastic on and off.

- Hunter W

While the car offers a pleasurable driving experience the engine recalls and problems act as a significant deterrent to considering the purchase of another.

I like the responsiveness of my car. It gets very good gas mileage and is sporty but practical. I liked that it was available in a hatchback option. I dislike that there have been several recalls and that I have had it repaired multiple times for shuddering engine during acceleration. While all those times have been covered my the powertrain warranty I worry what will happen when the warranty runs out in 10,000 miles.

- Sonya K

My ford is my everything!

My Ford Focus is my everything. It fits me perfectly! It's just the right size and if I ever need more room to lay something down my seats go down in the back and a nice sized truck. I love how there is a cover for my trunk as well it's even removable! If I ever need to put something big back there I just take it for or if I have personal items I can stick it back in. Speakers nice and loud. No problems with my ford.

- Kennedy D

Best car I have ever owned!

I love my ford focus! Everything from the comfortable seating to the speakers for blasting your favorite music! I haven't had an issue with it and it is honestly dives like a dream. Super smooth and comfortable. There is surprisingly a lot of space! I can easily fit 4 people in there without any issues of leg room and the trunk space is amazing. Overall, this car has been everything I could ask for and even more.

- Eli C

The most important thing is safety. It's up to current safety standards.

I like the large trunk space, and the sunroof. I like that it's up to fairly current safety standards with latches in the back seat to connect current baby seats. I like that it has alerts on the dash when it needs maintenance, but I dislike how vague the alerts are. Like, it will tell me Low Tire Pressure but not tell me which tire, and sometimes the alert won't go away even after I've filled all of the tires.

- Sara C

So far it is been a reliable car that is good as a daily driver, that looks good.

The car I have was a lemon law buyback, for shifting noises. For the most part I haven't had any problems with the car, I use it mainly to drive back and forth to work. Under normal driving conditions it gets about 31-32 mpg. The only downside I have is that I change my own oil and there is limited space under the car for me to get under and do what I need to do. Other than that not anything else bad about it.

Basic vehicle to get from point a to point b with just a little salt on the side

It works well for me. I've driven it for about 60000 miles now has almost 90000 on it. The interior is a little tight so tall or heavier buyers beware. I commute 40 miles to work and I'm taller myself, so the interior does not bother me. The engine runs well with no issues so far. I consistently get about 32 miles in the highway. Only problem was transmission which went out just recently and needed to fix.

- Derek H

Ford Focus recalls checked.

I have had my Ford Focus for about 3 years and has give me some problems with the engine twice. I have done my best to keep up the maintenance. It is a small but strong car. I think is a good first car for a kid learning how to drive. For the most part the performance is good. It gets up and goes when needed. It's a good economical car. Save gas and fills up with $25. The car is comfortable and seats 5.

- Samantha A

Unique-locking Ford Focus adventure.

The car uses certain aspects of manual shifting in an automatic way so it is sometimes difficult to accelerate quickly. I do not care for its slip detection as it makes it difficult to control the vehicle. It is very realizable and comfortable though. I like being able to use my phone's music on it and the sound system is great. This vehicle has pretty good trunk space for how compact of a car it is.

- Andrea S

If your looking to go long distances this is the car

The radio will go out A lot and then finally the radio will stop working and the car itself is very good on gas but the tire sensor will always go on and when you are getting a flat or low tire pressure the system will only tell you low tire pressure and it won't say what tire it is. The car itself is good for a first time car but as the years go on you soon realize that this is just a start up car .


Why NOT to Purchase the 2013 Ford Focus Hatchback

I have a 2013 Ford Focus Hatchback. There is a recall on the vehicle because of issues with the transmission. I frequently have to bring it into the shop to have it fixed. It is often very shaky and slow to accelerate. It also doesn't fare well with icy roads and the North Dakota winters. The gas mileage is very good and the car is reliable for the most part, but I would not make the purchase again.

- Brittany B

Ford Focus, great car for everyday use.

I never owned a small car before this one. It feels much bigger than it is. Ride and handling are outstanding. I have not had any mechanical issues, and gas mileage is above 30 MPG. The 4 cylinder engine has plenty of power and quick acceleration for getting on a highway. Folding down the rear seat gives me a large cargo area for long items. I could not ask anything more from an everyday use car.

- Peter F

Efficient and reliable 2013 Ford Focus.

Performance is descent of the vehicle is good. One thing I do notice is a slight skip when accelerating, this was one of the recalls (which I did take in my vehicle to be fixed) but I still sometimes notice it. Reliability is good. Comfort is okay, obviously this is a smaller car so I cannot complain. The features are decent for a 2013, aux/usb, power windows, automatic locks, Bluetooth and more.

- Cassie F

Ford Focus, just an okay car.

The radio/speakers/and center console screen stopped working for no reason and is not under recall. My gas tank also collapsed which I didn't know was possible, and is under a recall after I paid over 1, 500 to get it fixed. I will not pay to fix the radio because it is too expensive to justify when I didn't do anything wrong to cause the issue. The same problem occurred in my mom's 2013 fiesta.

- Carrie F

My Ford Focus experience is great

I love my Ford Focus honestly before purchasing I was very hesitant because I seen a couple bad reviews, but my opinion on that is if you take care of your focus and keep up with maintenance you're good to go!! The best on gas I've never owned a vehicle that was better with gas then my focus. The only concern I have is space I do wish it was a little more roomy but not so much a problem for me

- Victoria V

The most important thing that people should know about my car is that I am proud of it and I own it.

I like my car because it looks sporty but it is functional. I like the low profile tires and the rims. It is pearl white and I think it is a beautiful color. My car is a hybrid so it gets great gas mileage. The only thing I dislike about my car is that I bought it the first year the Ford Fusion was manufactured and I have had some recalls. Also, the paint on the trunk chipped very easily.

- A M

Ford Focus is reliable. Gets great gas mileage. Great car.

I like the Ford Focus. There was a problem with the new transmission switching that happens, but they always fixed it right away and extended my warranty each time. The car gets excellent gas mileage. It can park in a tight spot. The trunk is large. The car lets me know when the air in the tires are low. I'm happy with this purchase. I drive a lot and the Ford Focus is still going strong.

- Shanna A

The Ford Focus, a good little car for getting around the city.

It is a very comfortable car but because it is older does not have features like a rear view backup mirror. Lately it feels like it is slipping when I press on the gas and it makes a horrible sound when I put it in low gear. I used to have a 6 cylinder engine. The focus I have is a four. I would recommend this car for someone who needs to get around in a city but not a lot of highway driving

- Deborah H

It's got all the "bells and whistles" anyone could want in a "sporty" vehicle.

My Ford Focus is a bright blue in color with purple hues, when the sun shines on it, making it a beautiful, unique vehicle, as well as being very "sporty." I have satellite radio, and it's quite a lot of room in it considering its size. However, I dislike the recalls it's had on it but guess that's just life. It manipulates extremely well in our snowy winters and gets decent gas mileage.

- Nora D

2013 Ford Focus: radio and horn issues

I have only had my car for a year and a half. It gets me where I need to go but has had many problems. My radio doesn't work at all, it shows the time but that's it. My horn stopped working for some reason. Both worked fine when I first got it but not they don't work at all. Very inconvenient. I've read lots of reviews and a lot of people with a Ford Focus have issues with the same things.

- Kelsey B

Nice reliable car with a few mishaps.

There are frequent clutch and transmission problems due to the select shift feature. I love the car but these problems are quite bothersome.. The titanium model of this vehicle is very nice. The inside seat trim is white and black so it gives it a nice sport look. The sound system is very good as well. The touch screen size is big. There needs to be an update to the radio software though.

- Rae D

This car has great features!

I love this car! It's very reliable and has great features! The seats are not made for long road trips but for a quick ride back and forth to work it's great! I have had this car for over a year and still love it! If you're looking for a car for a teenager they have a great feature called my key where you can limit how fast they can go and how high the music is. It's a great family car!

- Jennifer C

Quick compact reliable and fun.

First ford's customer service is excellent. The car is fuel efficient and quick. It fits into compact parking spots and maneuvers easily in any situation. Hatchback is very convenient for larger objects. Back seat area is very small. Vehicle is really only comfortable for two adults. I have had zero mechanical issues with this car. It is actually my favorite car that I have ever owned.

- Christian H

Super Reliable - Very few issues

I really love the mpg - averaging around 31. It performs well, rarely having any problems. The biggest issue was a safety recall which caused the engine to shut off randomly, but the service dept at my local Ford dealer was really great in handling the situation and even provided me with a complimentary rental while it was being fixed. Other than that, it has been completely reliable.

- Kara C

Great gas mileage, low to the ground, no back-up camera?

I love the gas mileage and the ability to track your trips and gas used each time I fill up. I don't like how low the seats are (bucket seats). It's a nice car for casual driving random trips. I was a bit surprised that there is a screen in the main dashboard but when put in reverse, no backup camera. On a 2013? I thought that would be standard at that point. Either way I love the car

- Lee N

Loved but not safe for a family car

I have had a lot of recalls on my car. The clutch has been replaced twice already and still slips when driving. I have a recall on my entire car, but when I contacted The Ford company themselves refused to deal with any of my issues. I have had 2 different Ford dealerships tell me to put my car in a tree just to get out of it. Sad because it is a beautiful car and is great on mileage!

- Sarah J

Remote start, backup camera, Bluetooth & great on gas.

Small hatchback that runs smooth and gets great gas mileage. The titanium model has many features like Bluetooth, remote starter, power everything and a backup camera. Storage is a bit small but laying the back seat down allowed me to transport a small step ladder with no passengers. Haven't really had any problems at all with this car and I currently have about 25,000 miles on it.

- Jamie H

Ford Focus SE 2013 review!

Only issue is that mine and my friends Ford Focus se both have an issue with the transmission. It's always switching gears hard when you start accelerating. Good gas mileage and usually I get 400 miles when I fill it up until empty. It's around 25-35$ to fill the tank depending on gas prices. Roomy and large trunk It is very smooth riding and it feels good to drive it.

- Faith M

2013 Ford Focus SE Hatchback

Car is great on gas, very economical. Mine is a hatchback and I absolutely love how stylish it looks. I haven't had any issues with my car, it's very reliable and a very comfortable ride. The speakers are good quality and it sounds great. I love the front end of the car it kinda looks like a stormtrooper to me. It fits my kids very comfortably, they always fall asleep.

- Irma D

Decent hatchback storage space, bad transmission!

I bought this vehicle a year ago and I am already having issues with the transmission and now it sounds like the muffler is louder! It runs harder in the cold, which I am just finding out, and living in we this is a real problem! The interior is nice, comfortable for the most part. Not a lot of legroom, but the hatchback has a decent amount of room for hauling things.

- Kate D

Decent ride, great mileage, both city and Hwy.

I am not too picky so features I get are fine with me. Mileage is great, I love my car for that. Vehicle had two recalls, both were my issues, experienced problems while driving - transmission problem and faulty door lock. Had dealership take care of those free of charge which was nice but still a hassle. Altogether it's a great car for the price, would buy again.

- Sergey P

Ford Focus Hatchback 2013

I drive a Ford Focus hatchback as my daily vehicle. The car has an upgraded package so the interior is very comfortable and it has a lot of features that I love such as a sun roof and nice detailing on the interior. I bought the car used and it seems have to some issues running smoothly at times, but otherwise no problems so far and enjoying the vehicle overall.

- Brian M

Reliable and perfect for a first car

It's a pretty standard vehicle, there is nothing special about it. It is the perfect car for someone who just needs to get around, but isn't super interested in cars. It runs well, but because of its age now it is lacking a lot of the bells and whistles that newer cars have. It's very reliable, i haven't had any problems with it in the 3 years I have owned it

- Kellianne D

Ford Focus: A car for everyday

The only problems I have had were both recall items (an electrical issue in the door and a small brake wobble), both were fixed for free. It is a very comfortable car that drives well and gets great gas mileage. The car Bluetooth audio features were somewhat wonky, meaning they did not always connect correctly and would have to be turned off and on at times.

- Jordan B

It is a super reliable commuter vehicle that gets great gas mileage.

My Ford Focus has been extremely reliable. We have not had any issues other than regular maintenance. The vehicle gets great mileage and the back hatch is large enough to hold our stroller. The car is starting to get a little rust on the back end (which I think is a little on the early side for a car that is only 5 years old.) This is my only complaint.

- Shanna S

The car is reliable just a little slow for my taste. It can get home.

Check engine light comes on for no reason and when you go to high rpms it will some time cause it to stall. The car is fairly smooth riding and only a few times it did not immediately turn over. I have a manual so I don't have the transmission problems that the automatics have. The ac and heat have always worked and so far only had to replace tires and oil.

- Michael N

Good commuter car to zip in and out of traffic

Great commuter car. It does well on fuel. Small enough on the outside to get through traffic, but still has room inside. It's good for small families, and grocery runs. Downsides are the radio went out on it costs hundreds of dollars to replace. The trunk wiring is also in a horrible place. It has been cut twice now just by opening and shutting the trunk.

- Matt B

Smooth ride, great gas mileage.

Heated leather seats are incredibly comfortable. Drives great, amazing gas mileage. I do not think I could live without the back-up camera anymore. Bluetooth connectivity makes it very easy to listen to Spotify in the car. Biggest issue I have had is the rear brakes, but I bought it used and think they'd been changed previously and not installed properly.

- Daniel M

Nice ride and a great value.

It's a very nice car. Dependable, good value, great mileage - I have had zero complaints! The front seats also have lots of room for me (a pretty big guy), I would buy this car again! I do like that it takes e85 gas. It does get a little lower mileage, but around here in northern Wisconsin that gas is readily available and often significantly cheaper.

- Steve L

Still a good looking car, with great mileage.

My car gets 32. 5 Miles per gallon. The size is easy to wash. The shape is still good looking compared to newer models. Considering the size there is enough room for five adults to be comfortable. At 111, 000 miles the passenger window switch failed. The trunk is quite roomy and this is a great feature when shopping. The heater and ac both work well.

- Nancy K

Shift weird and has a bad reaction to heavy rain. Very small

Shakes when shifting and when it rains it acts like the transmission is going out and 'service engine now' comes on. I will say it gets great gas mileage. Also, it's very small. I can't have people in the back seat because there is no leg room. Also, if I want to buy a somewhat larger item, I have to call a friend to pick it up because it won't fit.

- Katy F

Better drivability than it's competition

I commute 120 miles a day. I needed good gas mileage... Check... Reliability... Check... Reasonably comfortable... Check...I I bought the base model, if I had known how good this car would be, I would have bought a higher trim package. Occasionally the transmission shudders, but it's performance is far better than an Impreza, Corolla, or Elantra


Reliable car and gets good gas mileage. No gas cap, just a push open door.

The car shuddered when shifting from 2nd to 3rd gear. I noticed shortly after I bought the car. I had taken my car to my local Ford dealership and was told it was wasn't showing as problematic enough to fix it. Finally, the third time I took it in (post recall) they fixed. It shifted better for about 6 months then started to shudder again.

- Heidi W

Comfortable, medium size sedan. Issues with coding for the transmission.

The car is a good size for a small family of four, and the mileage is good. Has problems with the coding and transmission. All else is standard with the car which eliminates additional expenses. The car is affordable, and comfortable to drive. Ride is smooth, however with the issues with the transmission makes the car feel somewhat unreliable.

- Samantha S

Safe, in-style, and affordable car.

My car is very safe and reliable. It also gets great gas mileage and is very affordable. There are a lot of safety recalls with this vehicle, and I am glad that the ford company is dedicated to keeping its cars safe. My car has very comfortable seats. I also love the media/USB port. It makes it easy to listen to my favorite songs on my phone.

- Ellie V

That it is not worth the money or the headache. This car comes with problems and should have been recalled.

It's barely 5 years old and the stereo system is already dead and can't be used. The transmission is that of a manual transmission and the car is automatic so we've had several issues with that. if you don't get the oil changed before it goes over only about 3000 miles the car runs really rough. Would not buy this car again or recommend it.

- heather r

Nice and cheap car (gas), has lots of problems though

The car Has a clutch problem. It does have problems in changing speed. Sometimes you can feel weird when speeding up. It was necessary to take the car 2 times for them to fix the problem. Some cars have also issues with the lock of the door, reason why it need to be fixed The cruise control doesn't work very well in hills Easy to figure out

- Adriana J

Driving a focus is sporty and fun.

I love my car for parking and in town driving. It is great for grocery shopping and going to the gym. Great on gas. Love the sync and the moon roof. Has push button start and a great navigation system. Love that I can feel confident getting into it late at night because it opens as I approach it with my keys without even pressing a button.

- Sandra D

Ford Focus or the car for the family or your commute to work.

I hate that my Ford Focus is constantly needing tune ups. I also hate that it has horrible gas mileage. But I do love the interior of this Ford Focus. I feel that the new update of the new car will be better with gas mileage. I feel that the dealerships that supply the car are very helpful. It is a somewhat reasonable price at most places.

- Jesse R

Affordable hatchback for long trips or around town.

The Ford Focus is an affordable get around town vehicle. The hatchback and fold down rear seats enable transporting things. There is a sync feature but I do not use it. I like the metallic gray color. I have made a long trip with passengers in the back who said they were comfortable enough and there was room for luggage for 4 in the back.

- Donna L

I love this vehicle, if you know me you know I love Ford Focus.

great vehicle, I love it very much. It works very will perfectly actually. One of the best vehicle I bought in my entire life. It is very comfortable to drive and has lot of features for the new upcoming generation. Great choice car! Also, the car drives really fast and it is very reliable on long trips if you plan on taking a long trip.

- Mia P

Just Focus on your needs when looking for a car.

Nice little car with good mileage profile. A bit smaller than we really need but would be great for a couple or a family with smaller children. Smooth riding and reliable. Ours has gotten us through rough patches and good times. Pricing is good as well. All around this vehicle is a good value for the pricing. It does what you need it to.

- William R

Should you buy a Ford Focus?

It cute and gets really good gas mileage. But, I have had a ton of recalls on this car. There's been issues with the transmission. The dealership did fix it for me, but if it hadn't been covered under my warranty though, it would have been really expensive. I would highly recommend getting the extended warranty if you want this vehicle.

- Faith Z

Excellent qualities varying in different sections of the vehicle.

It is very reliable. No problems as of late, just the usual with tires having to be replaced. There aren't many problems I have with it, the camera in the back really helps with backing up, and the distance it shows helps as well. The sun roof really is a good quality, especially in the winter, to just watch the snow fall onto the roof.

- Lina S

The tires on my car seem to hesitate and it has happened on other people cars.

The tires hesitate sometimes and kind of get stuck before they go. I think it is very comfortable inside and it gets warm and cool very fast. It drives well and has not given me many problems other than a few accidents that I have been in which weren't my fault. I like how big the windshield is and the lights are bright enough for me.

- Mackenzie M

Indifferent but like my car

Like the car. Tired of all the recalls. Which don't get me wrong happy they fix the recalls just makes me wonder if I made the right decision on getting the car. Don't like how the seal for the front doors aren't exactly contour to the car. There is a slight gap between the top corner of the seal and door and just drives me crazy.

- Jennifer S

Great on gas mileage! Great for travel!

I have had so issues with this car, multiple different recalls, and my transmission had to be replaced three times. If you keep up on all of these things it is a reliable car, and performs well. It is a small car but it is comfort for me, I love the heated seats, Bluetooth, and USB ports! It is also amazing on gas so that is a plus!

- Amanda M

my car may not be the prettiest car around but it sure does get the job that I need done done for me.

I don't really like that I had to take my car into the repair shop when I first bought it but it was under warranty so I can't complain about that to much. I love the gas mileage that I get on the car. I take things slowly so I get sometime up to 42 miles to the gallon when I'm normally supposed to get a max of 38 on the highway.

- keith P

Ford focus is kind of nice!

I like my car overall. It is comfortable and has a good amount of space inside. However it has had some issues over the year, including when I first bought it which was frustrating. Transmission issues were the main thing. My car does get good gas mileage though and a few of the repairs were covered under warranty which was nice.

- Matthew S

I do like the stereo system. The Bluetooth connection is steady.

Has horrible transmission problems. Even after getting all the recalls done, it still has issues. Can't wait to trade it in. It is comfortable and has a great stereo and Bluetooth connection. There are issues with the clutch and have been fixed before, but it continues to be a problem. It looks nice but isn't worth the headache.

- Monic S

What I like about my 2013 ford focus.

My ford focus is reliable. I have driven it over 100,000 miles. The hatchback is really nice for easy loading and unloading. I've moved twice with this car it hold a lot of its size. The sport mode is fun and zippy and the moon roof is nice. It's about as close you a sports car as you can get when you still need to be practical.

- Sarah E

Transmission issues can be dangerous.

Transmission slips on occasion when accelerating from a stop. It has been documented as an issue nationwide but no recall has been issues for 2012-2015 focus transmissions. Size is too small for a family with a newborn, car seat does not fit well and I am too tall to sit in the passenger seat without my knees hitting the dash.

- Kate K

Reliable vehicle for in town use in all weather conditions.

My car is reliable and gets 26. 7mpg. I change the oil on a time schedule. It cost $66. 00 twice/yr. The tires have been replaced once at 45k miles. I have replaced some minor parts like a front door gasket to reduce road noise. I would consider purchasing another Focus in the future because it is a good around the town car.

- Craig B

The sunroof brings in warmth when it is shut but you can let in a slight breeze.

My car seems fragile. It always jerks and I have had to take it in to replace the clutch multiple times. There were malfunctions with the window and the speaker base is not all that great. It is not good for the winter. Although the perks are it gets great gas mileage and there’s a sunroof for the cool breezy summer days!

- Milena H

Being able to use the flex fuel has helped me cut the cost a the pump!

I love my car! I do a lot of traveling, and it is been incredibly reliable through and through. The leather seats are very comfortable, and the trunk is spacious. The electronic dashboard is something new to me, but it is intuitive and helpful, especially having a complete guide on what maintenance issue may have come up.

- Rachel B

Just be aware of the potential issues.

There is a known issue with this years model and the transmissions. The way the rigged the manual to shift automatically has not worked out like I think they planned it. I have had to have it replaced three times in the five years I have owned the car. Other than that it is a good commuter car. It gets great gas mileage.

- Emilie N

Good features, bad recalls.

This vehicle has many recalls, including a suspension shudder and a gas tank vacuum problem. The Ford dealerships usually fix them quickly, but still a hassle. The car gets good gas mileage and is roomy. It has technology that I use daily for navigation and music. I wish it had better syncing abilities for newer phones.

- Kelsey W

The Ford Focus drives very smooth & the gas mileage is excellent.

I purchased my vehicle in good condition; however, there was roughly 115,000 miles on it. Only a year into owning it have I dealt with an oil leak. Everything else about it functions well. I did get the lug-nuts on the tires replaced with more standard ones because they are such an odd shape & difficult to remove.

- Karen T

Will Never Buy Another Ford

Ford currently has a class action lawsuit against it because of this specific car. The transmissions are horrible. Every time I take it into the dealership for an inspection or routine check-up (ex. 60,000), there are updates that need to be done. It drives horribly and jerks when moving from a partial stop to the gas.

- Jennifer R

Loretta always takes care of me... except in San Antonio

My car has always been very reliable and performed well. That said there have been a few issues with it in the past. Once the back door would not close and was recalled. This occurred while I was in a different city and was a big issue. Besides that the car has always ran well and never made me consider trading it in.

- Kyle W

165,000 miles and no repairs needed. Only maintenance.

Stylish and fuel efficient with room for a family of 4. Important that a manual transmission is available though I would like a 6th gear as comparable cars have available. Fun to drive. Would like the headlight switch from other Ford vehicles that use the fog/vanity lights anytime the headlights automatically turn on.

- Thomas N

Great gas mileage. It gets about an average of 30 but can get clear up to 46.

I love this car. Gets amazing gas mileage and is super reliable. Its the loaded edition and I can connect my phone via Bluetooth or AUX cord. The sound system is great and surrounds my whole car. Tinted windows and I love the trunk. It's still a small car which makes parking easy but still has a lot of storage space!

- Breanna S

Overall Reliable, Good Technology features

Multiple recalls- transmission and doors Comfortable ride Mostly reliable with good maintenance A little small for 5 passengers, but good for 4 Nice technology features- XM, Bluetooth Enjoy the sedan, like the look more than the hatchback Had for 6 years, 97,000 miles, it's been a good car. Reliable, feels safe

- Meghan H

Great Mileage and Trunk Space

While the car is great for getting around town, I also have two car seats in the back and they do not give enough room for the driver and passenger upfront to be able to sit comfortably. The vehicle is great on gas mileage and hasn't had any problems really except for normal wear and tear that a vehicle will have.

- Jessica P

Its an automatic but you can drive it like a manual.

Good on gas. Has plenty of room and it can pick up speed pretty good. It has all the extra features such as Bluetooth hookup cruise control CD changer. Colorful interior lights. No sun/moon roof though. They should of made more of those. It's also got the slap stick so if you wanted to drive stick shift you could.

- Jodi W

Ford Focus- practical and fun!

I really like this car. It is reliable and great on gas mileage! It is comfortable and has a great amount of usable space for a smaller car. The car handles well and is fun to drive. I have had a couple of alignment issues, but they were resolved. I have put over 100, 000 miles on this car and it is still kicking!

- Courtney B

An interesting detail about this particular make and model is the bt feature.

There is not many huge problems in this vehicle accept for the car may need to be taken in when the engine acts up by cutting off or if you are cruising uphill it may jerk forward. Be sure to get your brakes checked out and anything internal as far as learning more about the way it runs and what each light means.

- Shawn S

My vehicle is very nice for someone my age who is always on the go!

My car has very good gas mileage. But one bad thing is sometimes the car jumps when I take off at a red light. The cars seats are very comfortable. The car has a very compact backseat. The car has Bluetooth, which I really love. The car also has a place to charge a phone with a USB. The car is easy to clean out.

- Chelsea T

Great vehicle! Love the gas mileage

We love our ford focus. My favorite is the mileage it gets for gas! We average 32 gallons per mile. It is a very comfortable little care to drive in. The ride is very smooth as well. We have not had any issues with the car in the 5 years we have owned it. We put on a ton of miles, and it still runs like its new!

- Danielle W

Black Ford Focus sedan se.

I really love the style, heated cloth seats, sunroof, and tuxedo black paint. It is a great size and very comfortable. But I do not like the fact that I cannot see the hood when parking and that it is often jumpy upon acceleration. Also the transmission recalls make me feel very uncertain about future problems.

- Patricia L

A reliable car for the most part.

For the most part I really like my car. It has not given me too many problems. But the one it has is kind of a big pain. Due to a fault in the manufacturing it thinks I am low on gas when I am not. There is a recall on the car to fix this, however, my local dealership has still not acquired the parts to fix it.

- Madison H

My reliable 2013 Ford Focus hatchback.

My car runs smoothly however on occasion the transmission acts up and the car kind of jolts if you lift off the gas and re-push it the car drives perfectly after. The car is extremely reliable has not broken down once in the three years I have owned it. Never been in the shop other than for routine maintenance.

- Kylie W

Nice looking car, but has numerous issues (mechanical).

2013 model has clutch assembly which you feel when car shifts. It was something they tried just for 2013. I brought used and it already been replaced. I have also had some major repairs on parts that usually do not wear out until 150,000 and mine are being replaced at 60,000. It has several recall notices too.

- Beth O

Perfect for a mostly warm weathered state or in a city that plows well in winter

My car was great, at first. I loved the freedom of having a sunroof and Bluetooth to jam out in summer time. But when winter came the heated seats seemed like a good idea, however they took forever to turn on. The car is also very light which makes it unsafe in winter and even in lots of rain for hydroplaning..

- Sydney S

Slick hatchback is a peach to drive

My Ford Focus hatchback. Is super clever in getting to park in tight places. It's roomy enough inside to fit 4 people and has great trunk space. It is a flex fuel car and because of this gas is cheapest on the market. But unfortunately the mpgs with ethanol gas is average comparison to other non flex fuel cars

- Vanessa N

Great car! Love that remote car finder the best. It makes finding my car easy.

The Ford Focus is probably the best car I have ever driven. It is great on gas and has an smooth easy ride. The slick design is awesome. If I ever have to buy a new car again a Focus is what I would choose again. This time I chose a silver car instead of a blue or red. Silver has become my new favorite color.

- Denise D

Road hugging, comfortable interior, transmission defects.

My Ford Focus is currently going through a class action settlement for faulty transmissions. After numerous visits to Ford to correct the problem they finally replaced the entire transmission. So far it is running well. Aside from this issue I enjoy driving this vehicle. It feels road hugging and comfortable.

- Lorraine C

Great mom car fun to drive easy to maintain

Haven't had any problems yet! Super reliable and comfortable to travel in. Wish I could use my Bluetooth for music not just phone calls that's the only downside and the cloth seats. Great for traveling long distance and has pretty good room for how small the car is. I'm a first time car buyer great first car

- Ari A

It has awesome gas mileage but terrible transmission capabilities.

Love the seating configuration, gas mileage, and the fact that other than a few things I can get almost anything in this car. It's a hatchback and I have to date towed 36 cinder blocks and a curio cabinet in it with no problems. I do not like all of the issues that the transmission has had with its computer.

- Krystal G

I love the bright blue color of my car.

I love my car but it has had some tire issues since my car has been used before. It has very good mileage. It is important to take care of your car by taking it to get cleaned at the car wash inside and out/ or you could just clean it yourself. Whatever works best for the car owner is what is also important.

- Coral M

The vehicle is a cute compact car but the power steering going out was huge.

The cars radio system shut off and there was excessive static that continued even when the car was off and the power steering stopped working and is something that is prone to happening in this car. Other than that the car is really good on gas mileage however I do not think that the pros outweigh the cons.

- Sydney M

2013 Ford Focus - love that drive.

Really good car. Pretty good mileage ~30 mpg. Manual transmission which I love. Hatchback is great roomy easily accessible. Not a high power vehicle. But good enough for my purposes. Back seat is really small but still nice having 4 doors. Control panel and built in phone connect, Sirius, media really cool.

- Ray K

Reliable Fuel Efficient Commuter Car

Performance is great. Very good gas mileage for the significant amount of highway miles I put on it for work. The internal trim is basic but it is all I need. The car is very good value for its price point. If you are looking for a stable reliable car to out a bunch of miles on this will get the job done.

- Sam G

Nice car, transmission is not the best.

The biggest issue with the car is the jumpy transmission although mine had not been as bad as some. The instrument cluster screen also died on me before it was 4 years old. Other than that it is a nimble little car that is a ton of fun to drive, cheap to operate and inexpensive initially. Would buy again.

- J B

I love my Focus titanium!

This car gets great gas mileage. Handles like race car. Gets lots 0f compliments and is very comfortable. . Even for my hubby who is over 6 feet tall. Huge trunk for hauling stuff. Had only one minor issue with air conditioner and was quickly fixed. All the bells and whistles. . Heated seats are awesome.

- Vanessa C

. The overall interior of the car is well put together.

It performs very well, I haven't had too many issues with my vehicle. It does have a tendency to jerk a little when first accelerating but other than that it's nothing too bad. I will say however it is a gas guzzler. I can fill my tank in the morning, run my errands and by night, my gas is already gone.

- Anthony M

Small sedan with a few upgrades.

Pretty reliable car. My horn stopped working randomly and I need to have that looked at. I love my heated seats and I get pretty good gas mileage on it. Sometimes when I go to accelerate I get a slight jerking of the car. I am not sure if this is just my car or something that ford does with little cars.

- ashley R

Cool, but a little crappy.

My car stutters on acceleration after stopping. It gets annoying. I also wish that the gas mileage were better. It is very reliable and I love my car. Sometimes, with my line-in feature to my phone to listen to music, the line-in wont register so I have to turn my car off and then restart the ignition.

- Megan A

Great car, minor problems.

My vehicle is reliable. There have been a couple of recalls since I have owned it. There are a lot of features in it and a lot of add-on features. It is had some minor issues with transmission and electrical wiring. The fuel pump caved in on itself. Gets great gas mileage. Very compact and comfortable.

- Shia S

Ford focus se is the best small reliable car.

It is safe and reliable. It is small perfect for a work commuter. It would be a great first car for a kid. It is small but yet big enough for a family. It does not have any problems. It is electronics are not dated. Bluetooth is always a plus.Maintenance is not super expensive so saving money is good.

- Ariana L

Good car besides weird transmission issue

I love this car, it's comfortable and perfect size. I haven't had too many issues with mine yet. Bluetooth feature and aux cord plug in are great, nice speakers too. It's very easy to steer and has buttons on the wheel too. However, it sometimes jerks and chugs when I accelerate after a complete stop.

- Allison H

It is a reliable car to get you to where you need to go.

It is a reliable car and performs decently. Only problems I have had is sometimes the car does not want to shift between 1st and 2nd gear. The car has the ability to be automatic or to shift and I think that is what the engine's problem is with shifting between the two gears when car is in automatic.

- Jennifer L

Sporty sassy car with great mileage,

I like the 2013 Ford Focus se sedan because it is sporty, has good acceleration, and great gas mileage. It is comfortable for long distance trips, and is fun to drive around town. It has USB port for charging a mobile phone, and a smartphone can be connected with Bluetooth to the cars speaker system.

- Robert P

Ideal and affordable college vehicle.

Great college vehicle. Spacious. The Bluetooth feature is a little confusing to set up, but it was worth the hassle. Throughout the years I have been on a few road trips. However, I have always had transmission issues. The car will jerk during acceleration after a stop, but it is still running well.

- Britt M

decent car for average price

The transmission has Lot of problems that constantly need fixing. Other than that this car is a good reliable car. The features are great with the sync throughout the car. The car is comfortable and fits 4 people easily. The truck is nice sized however the way it closes it gets caught on everything.

- Kelsey K

Do not get a Focus!! They are made cheap and don't last.

A lot of recalls. Problems with the transmission. I have had to get it fix 3 times alone just for the transmission. Ac needs to be serviced every 6 months. 2 or 3 different recalls. It's a lot of money for so many problems. I wish more than ever that I didn't invested into a car that was so complex

- Melissa L

Reliable heat for mileage wonder room.

Love it as my first car very reliable barely any problems plenty of room. I thought I would like it but I was convinced otherwise by the car dealer and she was on sale so I am very fretful for her. And hope to keep using her in the future. And as well as letting my younger siblings enjoy a real car.

- Kayla M

Ford focus common issues/problems.

Problems I have are: it randomly will not start and sometimes shutters when accelerating from a stop! It is great on gas and affordable for regular maintenance. I love the hatchback and it is perfect size for myself and my kids. So far it has been reliable except for when it does not want to start.

- Heather L

Excellent for long distance trips!

The car is great for long distance trips. I have utilized it several times to drive from key west to wisconsin and it usually averages 36 miles per gallon! It handles great in the rain and snow. It has plenty of room if you are doing a road trip and has a great sound system to listen to music with!

- Nick W

2013 gray Ford Focus. Great car, good on gas. Power brakes, new tires.

I have a reliable 2013 Ford Focus. It is a4 door safety locks & windows. It is a hatchback so there is extra room, has a CD player, FM, am radio, surround speakers. Great on gas, 38 miles gallon, ac and heater work great, a very good car, power brakes, front and back windshield wipers and defrost.

- Debbie. C

The Ford Focus is a good car for the money.

The only thing I do not like is that the ignition does not light up when you open the door so it is hard to see when to put in the key. . Performance is ok and it is a comfortable ride. It is good in the rain and grips the road on turns. All in all, I believe the Focus is a good car for the money.

- Barb Z

2013 Ford Focus has known transmission issues.

Transmission known defects and has been replaced multiple times. Radio module has stopped working. Does get good gas mileage and is comfortable to ride in. Ford has extended warranty to 100,000 miles. Would not purchase this vehicle again if I had a choice in the matter. Would go back to Toyota.

- Lisa K

Not impressed at all and will not buy another ford!

Currently in shop with transmission issue at less than 80 thousand miles not to impressed with this vehicle and have no plans to buy a Ford again the inside of car is somewhat comfortable but still would not buy this car. Also the car has never been a good car in passing because it almost stalls.

- Teresa W

I guess it is regular stuff.

The transmission had a program to be replaced during the extended warranty. However, my warranty just went out when it started giving me problems. The clutch sticks and I need to have another one built. Too expensive, so I just deal with it. Also my acne went out and that part was very expensive.

- Tiffany R

Reliable but costly and annoying problems

The car is great and sporty but full of problems. I've had 3 recalls since buying it in 2014. Maintenance is costly but mileage is great. Very reliable on road trips. Stereo stays in the car is 50/50. It hasn't problems connecting to my phone Bluetooth half the time but when it works is amazing.

- Kelly B

What to watch out for when you are buying a Ford Focus the pros and cons.

The screen for the nav, radio is out. . It kicks off and on also makes noises when not running like window is rolling down. Hit gas pedal and tires do not grab. I do like the sunroof gas mileage is good but too many things are going wrong with it and it is really going to be expensive to fix it.

- Norma L

White 2013 Ford Focus Sedan

My vehicle is a white 2013 Ford Focus sedan. I got it pretty recently and it was about five thousand dollars. It's an automatic and it gets a pretty good gas mileage. I don't need a lot of space in my car and having a small car makes it easier to maneuver, so I like that my car is pretty small.

- Emma S

Ford Focus SE is pretty decent

Transmission modeled went out at 50,000 miles. Transmission is slipping at 130,000 miles. It's good on gas and has a nice factory music system. It's roomy I'm 5'11 and my seat goes back far enough for me to drive long distances comfortably. There is no room for anyone to sit behind me though.

- Tan K

2013 ford focus. Beautiful interior.

Haven't really had any problems with it. Except wiring in trunk went out but was fixed immediately. It still works like it was brand new. Perfect car for personal use and leisure. Very comfortable and enough room for 5 people. Good on gas mileage. Traveling is very comfortable and affordable.

- Kylie F

The driver side window does not work.

I like the way my car rides, but it has a few kinks about it that aren't so great. The transmission slips a lot, the second dash screen doesn't work anymore, there is a leak in one of my tires, and my driver side window does not work. The best thing about it is that it gets great gas mileage.

- Chelsea R

The Focus is a great daily commuter.

The focus is a very reliable vehicle for a daily commuter. While it is not the most spacious vehicle on the market it gets great gas mileage with a weekly average around 35 mpg. It has also been able to accommodate my growing family and fits three car seats across the back seat without issue.

- Colten C

Gas saver. Easy to maintain. Inexpensive.

The ford focus I have is reliable, doesn't take much to fill the tank and it does not waste a lot of has, haven't had any problems with it since I purchased it in 2013 as a pre owned vehicle, easy to maintain, spacious comfortable seating. Drives very well. It is a simple low maintenance car.

- Ruiz A

Great economy car with good gas mileage and performance.

I have had transmission problems that was thankfully covered under extended warranty. And it has had about $1,900 in repairs recently ranging from computer diagnostic issues to brake issues..And I also had to just replace all 4 tires. Other than that, it has good gas mileage and drives well.

- Rose C

Good little car, minor issues.

It has a lot of bells and whistles for the price. Comfortable car. The only thing I do not like is the number of little things that have gone wrong, like the computer operating the transmission failing. My favorite feature is that if the car crashes the Bluetooth will call 911 automatically.

- Kari H

Clown car with convertible and heated seats

Comfort--none, 2 seater and no shocks Mostly reliable problems with engine heating and throwing oil on the valve gasket covers Performance struggles to get above 60 and climb hills Features convertible leather and heated seats paddle shifters NOT the best on gas Slow to get up to speed

- Brittany L

Grammys White Ford Focus �Sunroof gives you a burst of Vitamin D�

I have a 2013 Ford Focus hatchback-It is white with black interior- Great on gas-Has lots of power-I have a sunroof I love to open when weather permits-I make 1 hour trips often to visit grandchildren so I have bought a new set of tires but other than that there has been no mechanic issues.

- Carla S

The transmission in this model car are often known to go out early.

I like that my car has the option to just have the hands-off calling option. I also love that the interior is so easy to clean! All of the features the car came equipped with works efficiently. My only complaint is the steering wheel is weirdly shaped & it is hard to find a cover to fit it.

- Amber P

2013 ford focus se review.

Transmission under recall for slipping gears, very hard to get going after stopping at a red light, stop sign etc. Has no 'get up and go' tire pressure sensor only works if car is turn off and on and does not go off if you get a flat while driving. I would not recommend this car to anyone.

- Whitney S

The exterior is surrounded with motion sensors.

I have had no problems with my car, it I a 4-speed with a lot of pickup. Its is comfortable with leather seats and has all the bells and whistles when it comes to technology including Bluetooth , GPS and park-assist. The entire vehicle is surrounded with sensors for parking and backing up.

- Deborah S

I like how the car is compact which makes parking a lot easier.

The seats are kind of uncomfortable and I wish there was a backup camera. Gas mileage is pretty good and I like how the car is compact. The care drives pretty rough overall and it is not smooth like a Toyota Camry or a Lexus. I wish the car had a faster pickup and more comfortable seating.

- Nae W

An interesting detail is that the interior lights can change color.

The Ford Focus 2013 hatchback is a great car. Going over bumps is smooth and the brake is not touchy. The heating and cooling works well. The windshield wipers do not squeak and the wheel is a good size. The hatchback is a good size for 1-4 people or a small family. Great for taking trips.

- Skye B

Fun and functional vehicle although not meant for families perfect for 2 people.

Functional and fun. Starless impractical. Not much space for a large family with perfect for me. Not very many issues with this car it is near perfect. I have taken it on trips many times without any issues. I love the sunroof the leather interior has a great sound system and heated seats.

- Beverly P

The vehicle lacks reliability. Breaks down annually due to faulty transmission.

The transmission fails on a yearly basis, as it is a fault of the make and model of the car. Does not drive up hills well. I get stuck on hills often and have to put my hazards on. So, reliability is terrible, however, the comfort of the inside of the car and the size of the car I like.

- Marie D

It's a Ford, and we are Ford-loyal. It's fun to drive, for the most part. Parking is a breeze.

Cute little car, not as much used by me as my Windstar, but the hubs likes the Focus a lot. Great pick-up, comfy, great instrument panel. Downside - he likes the transmission, I absolutely detest it. Whoever thought hybridizing a manual with an automatic should be taken out and beaten.

- Deonaha C

Overall, it is easy to drive with good gas mileage.

I like the size-it is compact but has plenty of trunk space and leg room. It gets decent gas mileage. If I could change anything it would be to increase ventilation especially with air conditioning-it doesn't seem to have enough force. Occasionally the engine stutters when starting out

- Jean T

Ford Focus, for people that need space, but not too much just yet.

The Ford Focus is a smaller sedan maybe for single people or people just starting out with a family. Mine has been pretty reliable, could be a little more comfortable, features are pretty standard for a 2013. Just had a recall on the fuel emission fixed, but it's typically good on gas.

- Jennifer R

This vehicle is a great gas saver with awesome functions!

It's low to the ground, sometime hard on my back. Great gas mileage. It has all the 'bells and whistles' including Bluetooth and voice activation Assistance. It seems like I get at least 2 recalls a year on it. Very reliable though! It's great for anyone who wants to save money on gas!

- Amanda H

Great color and quick speed.

Gas is reasonable. But several mechanical problems. With several trips to dealership and several recalls.. Dealership stated transmission shifting and problems could not be fixed. They ordered parts several times with no success. Vehicle as of today shifts very rough. Windows whistle.

- Deb F

I love the exterior appearance as well as the interior. Very classy.

Common dct problems. Other than that I love it. Great gas mileage. Semi decent power for an economy car. The interior is very roomy with small blind spots. I really like the upgraded leather interior of the titanium. Definitely recommend a ford focus to anyone. Also cheap maintenance.

- Steven D

Decent car but not worth the trouble.

It has been in the shop multiple times for faulty transmission. The clutch has to be replaced every 6 months. The dealership is very nonchalant about the whole thing which is incredibly frustrating. It is very compact and good on gas. Overall it is a good car if you do not get a 2013.

- Crystal O

Mileage is great, parts hard to find.

Since purchased I have had issues with the engine/transmission. I have had pieces replaced and was supposed to have fixed it but it did not. My car still acts as though it will stall when I hit the gas to go anywhere and just not the most reliable car I . Expected when I purchased it.

- Kelly E

Ford Focus improvements needed

Has a hard shift when taking off. Many recalls on the car. With one being unresolved at this time. Is a cheaply made car. Needs some improvement in the engine and transmission. Without increasing of the price. Needs to be cheap but good quality. To help people to be able to afford it

- Ashton E

This car is a gas saver and has a sunroof

There is a Recall on the transmission but it is a really great gas saver and it is a really cute car. Also it drives very smooth. The Bluetooth is way too complicated even after you are connected same thing goes for auxiliary cord. I still love my ford very much and it is worth it.

- Madison F

2013 Ford Focus - great commuter car

My manual 2013 ford focus is gas efficient, reliable, low maintenance (I have only replaced the fuel pump and get regular tune ups whenever the car light turns on), the back seat and trunk are on the smaller side. I bought the car certified used which I felt saved me a lot of money

- Allen P

Leg room in the back seat.

The back seat is awfully small. There wouldn't be any room for a car seat with the front seats positioned for a person of average height to sit comfortably. There might be just enough room behind my driver’s seat but that is only because I am 5’3” and seat close to the wheel.

- Elise S

Great gas mileage, seats always heated.

My Ford Focus is great when traveling long distance! It has great gas mileage, but a very small car. So not very much room for a family. Love that it has heated seats and radio is amazing! It is a very dependable vehicle, also love that you can get into the trunk thru the backseat.

- April A

2013 Ford Focus Vehicle Review

My vehicle is known for a transmission miss. However, the car gets good gas mileage and rides comfortably. The vehicle has good trunk space but little leg room in the back seat. The downside is no matter if the transmission is replaced, the vehicle will continue to have a miss.

- Jonathan N

Excellent value for the cost.

Drives smoothly. Never had a maintenance issue with it. Bought certified pre-owned. Very underrated vehicle. I do not personally understand people’s issues with the brand. Plenty of passenger room and handles decently in the elements. Not great in the deep snow obviously though.

- John T

I believe it is a safe vehicle.

I like that my car has good gas mileage. I dislike that my car has so many manufacturing defects. I dislike that my car jerks every time I accelerate because it is a semi-automatic. I hate that my cars radio went out and they cannot seem to figure out what has caused the problem.

- Hanna H

Good car, not so great company.

This particular make and model seems to have a new recall out every year. Its inconvenient to have to take in. Despite this, is VERY good on gas and reliable when recalls are fixed. Easy to drive and very compact while still having plenty of room. The trunk is extremely spacious.


Even though it has its problems it has great gas mileage.

Great gas mileage. Have some problems with transmission. Car dealer although has been very helpful. It has been in the shop for at least 5 times because of the transmission keeps on slipping but they do not have a fix for the problem and now there is a lawsuit going on with ford.

- Judy F

The Bluetooth is my favorite it looks very sporty.

Look nice rides great it is great on gas plenty of room nice big trunk it was a good price it is a great color it has Bluetooth and a CD player and it has good sound you can also drive it as a stick shift or automatic the back seat goes down for extra room it is very comfortable.

- Patty R

Decent car for it is class.

Other than multiple transmission issues, which were all covered under warranty, there have been very few mechanical issues. The one thing I absolutely do not like about it is the horrible blind spots. Overall it is a decent car. Not the top of the line, but not the worst either.

- Deb R

Great but has an issue...

Great gas mileage. The SYNC system makes driving hands free a breeze. Performance in general is great. However, recently my car has been doing a shutter thing that the dealership can't seem to identify. It hasn't caused any others issues that I'm aware of except mild annoyance.

- Veronica W

Drives fast and yall doing too much

It's nice, works well, once you fix a problem another one comes when it comes to ford. The ac works good it's a good work car but if you're looking for luxury it's not the one for you I promise. Its comfortable if you like tight spaces but if your tall and lengthy don't buy it.

- Cameron A

Focus - not fancy but affordable and pretty reliable.

I like the size and look of my car. It is pretty good with mileage, and I think it is comfortable. It does not always run smoothly. It feels like it is jerking at times, but I think it might just be a flaw with my vehicle. Overall, it has been a reliable form of transportation.

- Cheryl B

Car experience and issues I've run into with my car.

Lots of issues. Cost me 700$ to fix. Too many recalls. Other than leaving me stranded a few times it's a decent car. The gas mileage is pretty good most of the time. It's a good daily drive car. And good for long distances as well. It's comfortable and small but not too small.

- Audrey R

The Ford Focus is A Reliable Car

It's a spunky, reliable car. I've enjoyed my time with it and am thankful that I got the hatchback which provides a bit extra space but I imagine the sedan might have a little more leg room in the back seat. My car is a stick shift, which is the only thing I'd change about it.

- Lauren M

Sound system, seat warmers, premium leather seats, great on gas, sunroof.

Great performance, awesome sound system, leather seats, seat warmers, sunroof, great on gas. Has plenty of power, fits two car seats easily and comfortably, easily gets around traffic and drives well. Trunk has plenty of space for big grocery hauls or going on a long weekend.

- Savanna S

Used car satisfies customer for now.

I bought my car used. It had a smell when I bought it that might be from someone smoking in it. The ac does not get very cold. Other than that, the car runs fine. Gas mileage is okay for now. It would not be my first choice of a car, but I needed one fast and at a good price.

- Sydney S

Best car ever. My car drives well in all weather and is very reliable.

I like that it is compact, easy to handle, gets good gas mileage, color is great (race red), and good price. The car is one of my favorite for a compact car. The car is comfortable to sit in and has a large trunk big enough to hold my wheelchair. Handles great in all weather.

- Joan K

new vehicle vs old vehicle

its old and used so it is not the same as my last car that was brand new. It jumps a lot due to a sensor needing to be changed and the gas needle doesn't work which is frustrating. My last car had reverse camera and Bluetooth radio where this one doesn't even have USB plugs.

- Shelly D

The biggest highlight is the gas mileage!

I have not had any problems. The only concern was a skipping sound and found out it is actually a gas saving thing. It worries me but they assured me it was fine. The vehicle performs awesome. I am actually amazed for a smaller car, I can fit 3 car seats in the back seat!

- Lori M

perfect family car good on gas.

It is good on gas has a lot of room of you have children!! Runs smooth!! Good for traveling out of town especially on gas! The model of the car is beautiful I love it couldn’t be any happier with my car if you wanna good car and good gas you'll love having a Ford Focus.

- Amber T

Great car for highways and couples

Great highway car. Had some problems with transmission. Ford helped to fix anything wrong. Small car was great as a teenager but trying to fit two kids and groceries can be tough. If you have more than two kids or one car seat they will be cramped. Overall is a great car.

- Sadie R

My favorite part of the ford focus is the 100% hands free audio system.

My focus is a very classy yet comfortable car. I absolutely love the leather interior and how quiet the car is while running. The gas mileage is phenomenal if you do not do too much driving and fill up at least once a week. The most I've ever had with my car is 37.2 mpg.

- Brooke P

Good. Reliable. Perfect size for a small family. Easy to drive.

After changing the battery, would have to get you are vehicle to get a software update to avoid the speed limit to change and volume on your car to not increase after going at a certain speed. Overall good car. Great gas mileage. Comfortable when driving for a long time.

- Crystal A

Gear shift fail in Ford Focus 2013

My transmission and gear shift had to be replaced when it was only 3 years old. They said it happens all the time. My car suddenly stopped shifting into drive/ reverse and wouldn't move in the middle of the highway. It constantly shakes for no reason even on smooth roads

- Nicole D

Dependable car for the price

The car is reliable except the learning transmission. Repaired 2 times in 6 months. Gets good gas mileage. Inside is roomy. Trunk is large easy to carry anything you need to. Comfortable on long drives. Does well on highway and city. Drives well in snow as well as rain.

- Cindy G

My Ford Focus: great gas mileage, a simple car for simple needs.

It goes through tires, a lot. The gismo to adjust the driver's side mirror broke because it is cheap. It is great on gas and very low maintenance needed. It is roomier inside than expected. The windshield wipers make a funny noise. Heating and air conditioner work great.

- Deborah A

Efficient and Smooth Ride

My vehicle has amazing technology within it. I use my backup camera daily, and the dash display provides me with tons of valuable information about my car. There is a slight bumpiness when shifting gears due to the double clutch, but otherwise it provides a smooth ride.

- Maya T

Good gas mileage. Looks kind of sporty. I could do with more leg room.

Trunk has a weird wiring issue. But it is good on gas. It is pretty low miles right now about 61k. We'll see how it holds up from here on out. I am pretty religious on oil changes so I am hoping that helps. Also the horn died and needed a new fuse. Not too bad this far.

- Justin V

It has had quite a few recalls since we purchased it in 2015. This hasn't been a huge issue, as long as we've kept up with maintenance, but has been a little irritating.

I love how comfortable the seats are, as well as the ease of adjusting the driver seat. I would prefer a car that had slightly more width in the backseat. Also, I do like the trunk, but wouldn't mind something larger, as I seem to fill it to capacity quickly and often.

- Victoria W

Best last minute purchase I have ever made!!

It is reliable, takes gas well, and rides smoothly. I love my little car. I just had a baby and basically just needed something to get around in and it does the job perfectly. I love the coziness of it but the fact that I still have space for everything. It is a dream!

- Raven F

Been a problem since day 1.I would recommend staying away from the ford focus.

Constant transmission issues. The interior is cheap. Everything is plastic and it breaks. The paint has been coming up (the clear coat) and I make sure to maintain clean/wax my car. Also there are constant manufacturer recalls I get in the mail on this vehicle as well.

- Logan M

Focus on your ford focus its great.

Not bad pretty good on gas runs smooth and feels comfortable while driving. Has lots of features, and goes a lot a miles per gallon. Id recommend a car like this for people who are single or not family oriented as its a smaller car. But great to zip around efficiently.

- Moe S

The car has endless issues. It can still drive and gas mileage is great.

This car, not just mine but all 2013 Ford Focuses, has numerous of problems. The transmission is a manual transmission that has been put in an automatic vehicle, causing me to have to purchase a brand new transmission, and I still have problems with my car shuttering.

- Brooklyn A

This focus gets amazing gas mileage and runs very smoothly.

It's a wonderful car that gets amazing gas mileage. I wish it didn't shift like it was a manual though. I also wish it was just a bit bigger just for driving long distances. But I am a small person and the person that spends the most time in it so it's perfect for me.

- Madeline H

A fun car to drive with a sunroof and electric windows. It has a CD player.

My car performs really well on mountain roads. It is reliable and fun to drive and gets great gas mileage. My ford focus is comfortable and easy to keep clean with leather seats. You can drive my car in standard drive or automatic drive just with a press of a button.

- Lisa L

Leather seats and touch screen are a nice plus

I don't really have any complaints about my car other than I feel like it does run out of gas faster than my other vehicle that I drive more often, but other than that I love my ford. The touch screen and leather seats are a big plus and it fits all of my kids nicely

- Grace E

2013 Ford Focus quick review.

Problems: double clutch issues, had to get mine replaced after 100, 000 miles. Ford did cover it. It also does not have many compartments or cupholders. Overall it has amazing gas mileage and drives like a dream. It is comfortable for short commutes or short trips.

- Alexandra S

Ford Focus: Vehicle is clean and sleek with amazing features like seat warmers.

This is a super reliable car but it is a lot bigger than expected. It has a reverse camera which helps a lot. The seat warmers help a lot in the winter. I love how the car looks it is very sleek and clean. I does a fantastic job going up hills and has amazing breaks.

- Emma V

Is a good car as long as you do not drive it too much.

It is a good car with excellent mileage, good cruise control. Comfortable enough. Not too much space for passenger seat, pretty good trunk space, good handing, good exterior, it is an economy car that is frustratingly expensive to upkeep and the brakes wear quickly.

The horsepower and torque with the five speed transmission make it fun to race other vehicles

Great performance if you get the five speed and not the automatic. I have 175000 miles on mine and haven't had to replace the clutch yet it also idles all day with work. Recently had to replace the low pressure fuel pump but was expected for the run time and mileage

2013 Ford Focus -good car for back and forth.

It is a nice car, great front comfortable seats. The back is too small for passengers. Has great gas mileage. Have had no mechanical problems so far. It is a good back and forth car. It has good trunk space. It is a nice silver car. Not very good for winter driving.

- Shawn B

Solid Vehicle for a Small Family

Pros: Fairly quiet. Good acceleration. Very reliable vehicle for short to long drives as long as you keep up with the maintenance. Cons: Gas gauge can be misleading. If your light comes on, you need fuel real quick. Not the 30+ miles that it will estimate.

- Joseph D

My experience with 2013 Ford Focus

The transmission has had stuttering issues, almost like it may stall out even though it's an automotive vehicle, not a manual. Because of that issue, the transmission in my vehicle has had to be replaced several times due to recall. Otherwise it's a great vehicle.

- Maddox S

It has heated seats. It also has a nice Bluetooth system

There have been multiple recalls on several parts on the car. It seems like there are always problems going on in our car. There are more cons than pros. Before purchasing the car I wish I would have known how many recalls and issues that come about with the ford.

- Jessica G

My car runs perfectly fine. It is very good on gas.

The only problem that I have had with my car is that the brake bulb lamp light keeps coming on but my brake lights work perfectly fine. The light comes on every time the car gets turned on or randomly when I am driving. Other than that it is a pretty decent car.

- Darian Q

Very economical and comfortable to drive

My car is very roomy, smooth riding and very good on gas. I've had problems with the transmission and it doesn't have much storage room. It very good on the wallet and the maintenance on it is not very expensive. I'm a big girl and I fit very comfortable in my car

- Shirley D

Efficient and roomy... Great gas mileage lots of space and large trunk.

Great car,, no problems except for the transmission it jumps. The flash has to be replaced and reset often, great gas mileage, large trunk seats go down to allow even more space. Car has a lot more space than it appears. Seats are very comfortable lots of legroom.

- Amy V

Works for the moment, hopefully continues to work for years to come.

The car is great most of the time. The only issue I have with it is a transmission one. It constantly feels like it is going to go out. The car doesn't handle well when driving up hill. The mpg is really good though. I don't know if I would ever buy a ford again.

- Jon-Michael R

This vehicle has transmission issues.

This vehicle has some issues with the transmission. It seems like its wants to stall often. It shakes when taking off from a light. I like the size of the car and the gas mileage. I also like that it has flex fuel option. The interior is spacious for a small car.

- Dawn H

Why I love my Ford Focus and why you should buy one.

This car is a dream because it drives so well and has great brakes. Too I love the radio and the sound system overall. I would recommend it to anyone because it has been so reliable and has good power. Also I have had no problems with it. Ir is truly a great car.

- Richard E

Good and reliable vehicle

My vehicle is comfortable and reliable. I have never had any major issues since purchasing it related to the vehicle itself. It is small, but it is not so small that is seems too compact. It also has good gas mileage so I do not need to get gas as often as most.

- Amber B

Seats so comfortable you could drive all day!

This Ford is absolutely the best car I've had. It's reliable and dependable with great mileage. The seats are built with comfort in mind and definitely don't disappoint. But, my favorite feature of the whole car has to be the outside build, it's just so stylish.

- Amanda N

My Race Red Ford Focus is Great

My Ford Focus is incredibly reliable. It has great gas mileage; I only have to get gas about once a month. It has heated seats and leather seats, which improves the comfort, especially during the winter. It is a smooth ride and I know it will last me a long time

- Miranda A

Beware of ford's dual clutch transmission, is not an automatic as stated.

This vehicle has a dual clutch transmission nothing but trouble! Clutch or module replaced 2 to 3 times a year. Ford is unable to find the issues causing this transmission and I feel screwed! Lawsuit pending cause transmission is lemon, otherwise I love my car.

- Patty S

Ford focus for fun families.

No problems whatsoever. The ford focus car has driven well, gets good mileage, is comfortable and there have been a few recalls that have been taken care of by the ford dealership. I have had to replace tires and the windshield but nothing else. Has gone wrong.

- Susan M

Do not purchase this make and model. It is riddled with problems. There are recalls and transmission lawsuits against it.

This vehicle is horrible. I have already had transmission issues, my door frame is falling off, the radio died, it does not run smoothly, has trouble getting up speed, trouble getting up hills. I have never had so many issues with a car ever before in my life.

- Brie T

Bad transmission will need to replace clutch often.

Serious issue with clutch in transmission had to be replaced several times starting to see the same thing again will have to maybe pay soon out of pocket. Dealer did not inform me off the recall on this vehicle wanted a great car instead got pin with problems.

- Carey V

Performance is remarkable for a n/a car.

Problems: transmission. Ford has been more than helpful addressing the issue even after warranty ended. Performance: amazing fuel economy coupled with great performance for a naturally aspirated engine. Features: love the color changing lights in the interior.

- Steven L

Awesome car with lots of amazing features.

It does not get up to speed fast. It has amazing gas miles. I love the seat heaters. It takes a while to get up to speed. It has a small backseat but large trunk. I can fit a lot of stuff in the car. The ac works. The radio can get confusing on how to control.

- Re B

The large trunk and a nice sleek look

The car is very reliable. Over time there are up keep that would need to be done. There is electrical problems though in the dashboard. A great point a to b car. It's very spacious car with a large trunk. Even though it says hatchback it doesn't look like one.

- Jane J

Basic transportation for city use.

Highly reliable especially during winter months. Good for city driving on a daily basis. Good gas mileage. There have been few problems; however, there were two manufacturer recalls. This car is reasonably comfortable but not a vehicle for over the road trips.

- Craig R

Transmission problems on Ford Focus.

4 times transmission problems in 2 years causing brain to burn up having to have vehicle taken to Ford dealership do not buy a 2013 Ford Focus hatchback vehicle is junk. Does get good gas mileage though. Drives good in bad weather like snow and ice conditions.

- Caesar G

Ford recalls too much but overall nice car

Transmission was recalled due to shuttering. I continue to have issues with it. Seems like every year there is a new recall. Cannot get my text messages to come through the Bluetooth. Black leather interior is nice. Sun roof is amazing in the warm weather.

- Liz G

It�s a small compact car that�s good on gas

This vehicle has to many recalls that affect its driving and safety such as door latch, warped gas tank and bad clutch sputter! It has been mostly reliable hasn't broken down on me, it is really good on gas, it doesn't have a lot of features to it except BT.

- Joshua D

Lots of space and fuel economy in a small car at a great price!

My vehicle is very economical and gets great gas mileage. Ford uses Microsoft Sync system and it is great. I can sync my phone, music library, vehicle health and a lot of other information right to my phone or email. It is reliable and safe and a great deal!

- Jill S

2013 Ford Focus SE Review

I had issues with my transmission due to a recall. It's easy to drive and gets good gas mileage. It's roomy and the seats are comfortable. There's a sensor that lets you know when an object is nearby. It's beneficial in that it makes parallel parking easier.

- Shelby O

The focus is a great, reliable car.

The car has great features. Has had a little bit of issues under the hood but it has been fixed. Rides smooth and gets good gas mileage. It looks good, the design of it is appealing. There is not a lot of legroom in the vehicle, especially in the back seat.

- Jeremy G

Great car; comfy, drives well, love it.

The car is extremely intuitive and easy to drive. The transmission has issues but that is only the fault of ford and not the specific car. It was great features and it is comfortable. It is a very enjoyable car to drive and has great stereo and gas mileage.

- Sara H

2013 Ford Focus Still Drives

I have had no issues with me car. It has been reliable the past six years. It drives well and has few problems. It is comfortable for long drives. It has Bluetooth which is a nice feature. The only issues have been covered under the recalls for this model.

- Kristen F

Trade power for gas mileage.

This car can get awesome gas mileage! I wish I had more power though. It shutters when shifting from 1st to 2nd because of transmission control module. A dealer can reset it but usually goes back to shuttering after a couple months. Keys are too expensive!

- Philip M

Ford small but great on gas.

It is very reliable, I just hit 100, 000 miles not a problem at all no engine probs. I cannot say anything bad about Ford or the model Focus. I would make the seats more comfortable. I am over 6 foot tall and some long drives it becomes very uncomfortable.

- Jack C

My awesome reliable ford focus.

My car has brand new tires. It is super great on gasoline. My car has gotten me all over. California, Nevada, New Mexico. It's not roomy but it's perfect for me and my family. I have replaced the brakes and it has new shocks and a new catalytic converter.

- Janice S

It is all electric. Every morning, we have a range of 80 to 100 miles.

Our Focus is all electric. My husband loves it. He likes driving it. I like the environmental aspect. We live on an island and can drive it everywhere. I am quite small and even when the driver's seat is raised all the way, I still feel like I am too low.

- Bonnie S

Recalls and poor craftsmanship ruin what could've been a fun driving experience.

Transmission has been recalled multiple times. Car stutters on acceleration. Overall poor performance. Sync system works only a portion of the time. Driver seat is not comfortable for long drives over an hour or so. Despite recall fixes, problems persist.

- Aaron C

It is such a great car, love it!

Reliable, great vehicle with regular maintenance. I was able to get a 5 speed that also has cruise control. Well balanced and handles well. I cannot believe that Ford is going to stop making them. Been a very reliable car with over 120, 000 miles to date.

- Tina C

I am very happy with my little car.

My car has minor issues with the dealership is handling it! I love the body and up to date gadgets it makes the drive very comfortable. The size is perfect and the price is affordable for the car. I highly recommend looking into a 2013 or newer for Focus.

- Robin N

Ford Focus review. 2013 model.

This model has transmission problems and I wouldn't have bought it if I had known. Otherwise it's a good car. It's good on gas and fairly easy to drive. The body style is cool looking and I like the front end style better on the 2013 than the newer ones.

- Christy H

It is known for its faulty transmission, especially for its year.

My vehicle looks new and is basic, but faster than most basic cars. However, EVERYTHING has been repaired on it by myself. There were issues with transmission, brakes, and even a gas leak. This was a pre-owned car. Now that everything is fixed I love it.

- Alexa S

Don't buy a ford vehicle.

I have had several recalls on my Ford Focus. All of the ford dealerships are really awful and difficult to deal with! I have had to go back for the same recall 3 times. They always temporary fix it. This makes me ever want a ford again. Don't buy a ford!

- Nicole F

Works great except for some minor issues.

It has problems with switching the behind the wheel display, fuel efficiency, miles to empty, and trip distance. Sometimes has trouble switching gears, and some brake problems. Otherwise very reliable. Great gas mileage, it is a comfortable smooth ride.

- Colin G

I really love the select shift tranny

Tranny issues that's it but taken care of after recalls were done on the vehicle. That's is all that I have experienced regarding issues with the vehicle. There is nothing else that I have noticed that is wrong with the mother vehicle this is all thanks

- Dallas G

Great red Ford Focus car, with big trunk.

My car is stick shift, big trunk, it gets good mileage, the car rides smooth, nice color, has good enough space in the back seat, big trunk, great mileage, nice color, long distance driving, love the car, drives great, love the smooth drive, good color.

- Wendy R

Small affordable car that gets good gas mileage. Have had several recalls on it.

I have had 2 big manufacturer issues. Good in gas mileage. Had issues with transmission and acceleration. Had issues with radio. Had several recalls Ford at to fix. Small car for a little person. Good car for a first time driver but not on your pocket.

- Liz M

It's a great car to river and would make a good family car

It is very comfortable to drive, has a lot of space. It would make a great family car if you have kids. Very safe to drive and very reliable. I've had it for over a year and haven't had any problems with it. I love my car and would highly recommend it.

- amy B

Power steering, it goes out, you die because you have 0 control of the vehicle.

Liked the sync system. Hate that the audio control module went out. Hate that my power steering rack went out. Hate there was no recall for the power steering rack. Even though it is a known safety issue and has been recalled in other models of fords.

- Angela C

Overall great, some gear shifting issues.

Overall this is a great and reliable car. I have had issues with the gears shifting however. Sometimes it gets really choppy/jerky. A couple of times my car stalled out and would not start. But it has since been fixed and it has been working reliably.

- Rachel W

Lots of room, but lots of engine problems.

There have been problems with the Bluetooth radio, some air conditioning problems, and it can also be slow to start. It has a large trunk and plenty of legroom in the back, and is quick to warm up in the winter. Minimal features, not high reliability.

- Melissa K

Affordable and fuel efficient, but these cars have a known transmission problem which Ford is unable to fix.

I like the fuel economy, decent size for people and trunk space. I like the price, which was very affordable. I dislike the transmission clutch issues which Ford cannot fix. I dislike electrical issues which have caused my stereo to stop functioning.

- Christian M

There are a few recalls but they are nothing major. Not a good car if you travels with multiple people. Perfect for long roadtrips for 1 or 2 people. Great gas mileage!

Love the size! Wish it was not black. The trunk is very roomie but the back seat is not. I do not have people in my car that often so it is fine. The clutch has gone in it twice but that is all. For the most part the car does not have many issues!

- Colleen H

It's really good on gas mileage. I hardly have to fill up my car.

For the most part, my car holds up really well and I haven't had too many issues aside from normal maintenance. However, it does do something weird when I go from sitting at a stoplight to accelerating, it shutters and jolts when i'm speeding up.

- Kayla B

Not to dirty it cause it takes a while to clean.

Transmission problems, jumps and hops when starting from a stop or crawling in in-town traffic... Lock and unlock button in the middle not on drivers side..... Love the interior and set up of the controls, especially the steering wheel buttons..

- Quinn O

The same as the last question. I have heard that it has to be a manual not an automatic. I have the manual.

I love that I have not have had any major problems with my vehicle. This is the 2nd Ford Focus that I have had. The 1st one I had had over 214000 miles before it started giving me lots of problems. I'm hoping that will be the same with this one.

- Crystal A

Surprisingly roomy trunk and seat modifications!

So far, this car has been great to own. It is good on gas, tires etc. and has been very reliable. It has great trunk space and fold down seats/I haul antiques and home decor items on a weekly basis and it is surprisingly efficient in this area!

- Debbie B

Ford Focus Hatchback: The Car for Everyone

I have the Ford Focus Hatchback (2013) and I absolutely love it! The leather bucket seats are incredibly comfortable and it has great space for my family. It is great on gas and I can always count on my car getting me where I want/need to go!

- Kristen P

Ford Focus is Fine. it holds plenty of stuff, just not all people

it's a fine car. the body is small enough to fit in most parking spots, including tight parallel spots, but it still holds a good amount in the truck. downside is the front seats don't have as much space so if you're over 6' it's a tight fit

- Rebe M

Ford Focus: Fast and Efficient

The best thing about the Ford Focus is the gas mileage. You seriously can't beat it. I get almost 30-33 miles to the gallon. The thing I do not like about it is how small it is. I can barely fit people or things in it. I wish it was bigger.

- hallie j

This model year is NOT reliable! Great tech but too many issues with transmission.

This particular model years has massive transmission issues and has required five full transmission replacements in five years. It shudders, has broken down in the middle of a highway twice, and is needing replacement after only five years.

- Christine P

It is great on gas mileage, but I have had a lot of problems with the engine/breaks.

I was so in love with this car whenever I bought it a few years ago, but it's been nothing but trouble. The interior is wearing off, the engine is messing up, and it's basically falling apart and I don't even have 100,000 miles on it yet.

- Ana H

It's a beautiful car with lots of cool features and roomy seats.

I love the sparkly paint and leather seats though those same seats get quite hot in the summer. The navigation system and sound system is great. It's had some issues with the transmission and a few random recalls that are worrying.

- Lori C

Do not buy this car. It is dangerous and Ford knows it and admits it.

The transmission ha been replaced by Ford 5 times. The cultch has been replaced by Ford 6 times. The power steering chip replaced 2 times by Ford. It is part of a class action lawsuit which Ford has agreed that the car is junk.

- Kat D

That the transmissions were recalled and it's one of the worst Fords I have ever owned.

This vehicle is nothing but problems. There was a recall on the transmission and the horrible design of the exposed wires in the trunks that frequently get pinch when shutting trunk and messing up trunk unlock AND reverse lights.

- James A

The car gets great gas mileage.

I love my Ford Focus. It gets great gas mileage in the city and town. The car handles very well on the roads. There is lot of room for storage in the car. I have had problems with the transmission but it was covered by warranty.

- Michael O

This car is reliable and fuel efficient

Honestly I love this vehicle. I love the size, fuel efficiency, style. I think it fits me perfectly and has always gotten the job done. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because I had issues with a transmission warranty.

- Rebekah S

It has a panel in the center of the dasb with all your car information.

I love my little car! I don't know anything about performance, horsepower, things of that nature. I do know that the audio system is great, you can plug a straight USB into the center console and the gas mileage ia fantastic!

- Kristen H

It is a little small but can still fit people better than most think.

I like it because it is a simple car that wasn't terribly expensive. It has what I consider a lot of standard features and a bit extra. It came with Sirius XM that I now love and bluetooth capabilities that I have used a lot.

- Nathan H

Efficient, comfortable vehicle, but transmission issues.

Positives: Comfortable seats, plenty of trunk space, good gas mileage. Negatives: Continues to make a shuddering noise/sensation on acceleration. The air filters somehow manage to get wet and then smell musty, like a wet dog.

- Colleen M

It's a good car for economical travels.

We like our car's good gas mileage. We like that it can use E85 fuel as well as gasoline. It is a pretty comfortable car for traveling. It has great trunk storage. We don't like trying to fit three grandkids in the back seat.

- Johanne W

They should know its comfortable and very updated with tech which is fun.

I love all of the technology. I honestly cannot live without a car that has Bluetooth capabilities now that I have been spoiled by my focus. Also I like the way it looks. It's very sleek and cute. It gets amazing gas mileage.

- Sarah B

Ride is fairly smooth,and quiet.I don't mind going on 2 hr. trips one way to visit and return same day.

Very few problems.Nice riding.Reasonable mileage around 27mpg. Heater works well in our winters,warms up quickly. Air conditioning has worked well and little or no recharges have been required. Maybe once since I got it used.

- David B

It's very reliable. I've had no trouble with it.

My Focus is easy to drive, and easy to park. It's great on gas, and comfortable to ride in. The trunk holds a lot, and the seats fold down to hold even more. I have no complaints and there is nothing I do not like about it.

- Kate R

The car is very reliable.

There is a clutch within the motor that has to be replaced once a year because it causes the car to hesitate. It is a great gas saver and super cheap to fill up. The interior can be cheaply made if you get the base package.

- Marisa B
