CarComplaints.com Notes: You should probably steer clear of the 2012 Focus. Otherwise, you might not be able to steer at all.

The 2012 is the first Focus to offer Electronic Power Assist Steering (EPAS). It's also the first year with massive power steering failure. These things are not mutually exclusive.

And while you wait for your steering to disappear, you'll be greeted with a transmission that shudders, vibrates or won't shift at all.

When I turn on the interior heater, the selector switch that directs the air to windshield, panel, or floor, will not send heated air to the floor. It makes a very loud noise of air being forced through a tight opening, but the heat does not go to the floor and the heater is almost completely ineffective unless the fan speed is set to the highest setting.
