Ford Motor - 2012 Focus
FERNDALE, MICHIGAN -- I bought a 2012 Focus SE in August 2012. Lousy mileage, poor transmission. We traded in a 2008 Civic w/80,000 miles. Focus quality doesn't even come close to the Civic. The mileage with the focus is 26/28 at best and is driven very conservatively on freeway's and mileage really stinks. I have an 2002 Intrepid that gets as good or better mileage. Very sorry we got rid of the Civic. After first of the year we will be trading in the Focus on a Dodge Dart. Ford has mass produced the Focus to be a "throw-away" vehicle. Trade-in for this 2012 Focus is 9k to 11k with only 7,600 miles on it. How very pathetic, Ford, shame on you. Shades of the Escort and Pinto have returned in the Focus!!! Never another Ford product, EVER! Wish we could start a product reimbursement claim from Focus owners who are as dissatisfied as we are.
