What Our Members Are Saying about the Reliability And Durability of the 2015 Ford Focus

2015 Ford Focus Reliability And Durability: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2012 4dr Hatch 160-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed automated manual FWD
Had a clunking noise in first 1000 miles that required front struts to be replaced. Clunking noise appears to be slowly reappearing. Starting to occasionally hear a low groaning noise when transmission shifts between 20 & 30 mph. full 2012 Ford Focus review
2015 Ford Focus Reliability And Durability: Neutral
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2014 4dr Sedan 103-horsepower 1.6L I4
5-speed manual FWD
I backed into a GMC people carrier. Massive damage to his front end. Mine looked like it just came off the assembly line. Not even dust on the clearcoat. full 2014 Ford Focus review
