Delivering an outstanding mix of style and substance, the 2013 Ford Focus enriches its fundamentally solid and efficient basic package with the availability of class-leading technologies, including My
The avant-garde kinetic design cues of the 2013 Focus won't please those with less adventurous tastes in styling, but an equally significant consideration involves its comparative pricing. While the F
The Ford Focus has a robust structural foundation and features European-style suspension tuning that imparts a clear measure of fun to the driving experience. Even the base Focus S feels comfortable yet confident and responds quickly and predictably to all driver inputs. Although ride compliance suffers a bit as you move up through the model hierarchy – and particularly on Titanium versions fitted with the optional 18-inch wheels and 40-series tires – the Focus still merits above-average handling marks across the board.

"I bought my Focus new thinking I wouldn't have problems with it until I had it for a few years...I was wrong. I had my Focus serviced 14 times in a little over a year, 6 times for cruise control issues, 4 times for door leaks which are still not fixed, the Focus emblem fell off, the fake metal looking panel on the steerling wheel peeled and had to be replaced and in doing so they had to replace my airbag, a "computer update" which was apparently a type of recall on the transmission and finally an oil leak...Ugh!! I knew buying this car the shifting wouldn't be as smooth as any other automatic because its a rebuild transmission from a manual...the car shudders horribily while I'm doing errands in town and rolls back on the slightest hill when stopped which was suppose to be fixed by the computer update. Needless to say I'm NOT happy AT ALL with car. I want to get rid of it sooner than later. The only positive thing I can say about this car is that I get an average 35 MPG (I drive 80 miles a day) and its comformtable to drive. The buttons on the steering wheel makes listening to music easy and the interior is very nice...other than that I would recommending getting a different car."
