Ford Focus Reliability

You won't find Ford Focus reliability information like this anywhere else. Actual repair frequencies, not just vague dots. So you can tell how much the Ford Focus truly differs from competing car models in reliability.

These stats have been promptly updated four times a year, to much more closely track Ford Focus reliability as the cars age. Others tell you how reliable the Ford Focus was a year ago, when the cars were a year younger and had 12,000 fewer miles on them. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Ford Focus has been recently.
