Dark grey 2015 ford focus se.

I love being able to have my phone connected to my car via Bluetooth or USB or jack. My favorite quality would be the rearview camera as it is really helpful when trying to parallel park or simply making sure I do not hit any cars when backing up. My biggest issue with my car has been the automatic transmission, as around 11 and 16 mph, if you do not accelerate at a certain threshold the car shakes as it shifts between gears. Aside from the transmission concerns, the only other performance issue I have noticed is that the car does not perform well when there is heavy wind outside. When I am driving on a highway and there's strong wind I can always feel my car being pushed across the road and feel like I have less control. Other than those two concerns I feel like my car is completely safe, as someone who drives an hour to work and back, it has been incredibly reliable and has really nice interior features for an affordable price.

Very stylish in the se hatchback edition with the rear spoiler and 17" rims.

I really like the style, the looks, and the options. My 2015 Ford Focus is an se hatchback with all power equipment except for power seats. It also has a power moonroof and hands free phone system coupled with Bluetooth and auxiliary plug in for listening to my favorite music. The only qualm I have had with my 2015 Focus se is the "cvt" transmission. It wants to hesitate, pulsate, or tend to slip I guess. I bought it with 39, 000 miles and it wasn't really doing much until after 50, 000 miles. I have been told it may still be covered under Ford's warranty up to 100, 000 miles. I am now at 73, 500 miles and should probably go ahead and take it in to be checked at my local Ford dealership. Other than that I am extremely pleased with my overall service and comfortability in this car.

Safety issues due to the gears sticking when trying to pull out in a hurry.

This particular year of the Ford Focus is not the best. We had an older Ford Focus that was awesome. We thought buying a newer year of the Ford Focus would be awesome as well, however, there has been several recalls on this model. We had to have the double clutch replaced not once but twice. Even after having this repair the car still continues to stick in gear. When you begin to go after being a stop light or are slowed down in traffic it takes a while to kick into gears. We actually were in a lawsuit over this vehicle and did receive part of a settlement from Ford. As far as looks, comfort and gas mileage, it is well worth it but as far as reliability, I would not recommend this year of the Ford Focus.
