Unhappy is it bacK 2 Hyundai??

I had 5 Hyundais in a row, no problems,, I thought I would try Ford, wanted the
Fusion but wifey said try the Focus (2010) - @ 12000 miles, the exhaust is krappy, the engine vibrates, the battery keeps dying, the belt & door Boing has stopped working!!!
Ford are going to look at iT""' --- Hyundai I may well be back...

I have a 2011 and have no issues at 21k miles.

What do you mean "The exhaust is krappy" ?

if the battery keeps dying have you replaced it? have you done a parasitic draw test? isn't a 2010 with 12k still under warranty?

Yes, it's U/Warranty - Battery already replaced once! - exhaust rattles & vibrates like an old truck....

Sounds to me like a weak or broken motor mount, bad alternator, and broken exhaust hangers.

Was the car ever in an accident or dropped from a lift?

The interior bell could be as simple as replacing a fuse.

Its under warranty, so get it fixed. They're really nice cars.

Hi, no accidents of any kind, nearly as clean as when it stood in the showroom..
It's up to Ford to decide what is wrong and what needs replacing etc..
I'm sure it will all be sorted...But I'm still unhappy!

Take it to the dealer and have them deal with all the issues. They will take care of you :)

I had a Elantra Touring for 5 day's..... Was riddled with problems, engine overheated on the first long road trip I took *rad fan failed* Alarm kept doing off at night *door pin issue* and burnt out two headlight bulbs!

Every vehicle has its flaw's!!!!

This is why I would never buy a used car without having a mechanic I know check it out. I don't buy all this certified pre-owned BS.
