problem #2

Apr 012018

Focus SE 1.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 12,000 miles


The leak has been fixed 3x by Ford and the still the car has the problem and gets mildew and mold smell. It is just a Lemon. It drives beautifully as to the ride, but overall it is just VERY POOR BUILD QUALITY. I would not recommend any Ford Focus or Fiesta Models going back from 2013 to present time. They both share many of the same components and have the same problem Consumer reports says both of those cars and well below average for all model years. Why give yourself these headaches. And the transmission problem they have is something that cannot be permanently be fixed and you will be replacing the clutch frequently from damage from the overheating transmission for the life of this car. It is just not worth it. You're even better off with a reliable used car from another manufacturer.

Focus SE 1.0L

Occasionally water drips into the passenger side of my car. My guess is it is air conditioner condensate, but I'm not sure.
