My wife had a 2012 sedan. The car felt more upsacale than its competitors. It handled great, had plenty of power, got great gas mileage, and was realy quiet for a small car. In metallic Candy Apple Red paint, it looked fantastic. The problem was the dreaded dual clutch auto transmission.

My wife could not get over the fact that it is an "automated" manual transmission and behaves like a manual. She thought it shited too harshly, and freaked out when she was stopped on a hill, released the brake, and the car would roll backwards before she could accelerate.

I drive a manual transmission. So for me, it worked as it should. However, after researching these "problems" , I fouund out how many people have had to replace these transmissions; sometimes multiple times. We had 46K on ours when we decided to trade it in due to shift characterists and the abysmal realibility of the transmission.

The Focus depreciates quickly due to reputation of the dual clutch transmission. For that reason it can be a teriffic used car value if you know how to drive a manual and are able to locate one with a manual transmission.
