BiffTannen Purchased: June '12
Miles - 17,500

Overall, I'd say 8/10. I had to compromise a bit & go with better MPG's due to my insane drive to work. I wish I would have had time to find a manual but it wasn't in the cards.

My only need would be for AWD (of course I would lose MPG's). There were 2 small snow storms this past month & I was not overly impressed with the car's performance in the snow. Too light & it needs better tires. I also wish there was a TC button.

Welcome to the forum, KatFocus! I want to lend a hand with getting you to love your ride by escalating this up to your regional customer service manager. Please send me a PM with your full name, current mileage, best daytime phone number, dealer details, and VIN.

Can't say I love the Focus

Can't say I "love" my Focus....
Too many little problems. This car has been to the dealer more times in the 10 1/2 months I have owned it, than my previous car did in 10 years

If the Ford "Quality" was really that .......

I sent you a PM as well. The call was honestly a waste of my and the gentleman's time. He was very good costumer service wise but really had no way to help me other than suggesting I take it back to the dealer. I appreciate you trying though

To those having a concern, I want to offer my help by arranging a call from the customer service managers for your region. If you havenít already done so, please PM me your full name, best daytime phone number, VIN, dealer name/state, and approximate mileage.

Flybigrc,

For help with SYNC, I highly recommend getting in touch with Jaclyn (username: FordIVTteam) on the In-Vehicle Technology team; sheís great!

To talk to someone on the phone, the In-Vehicle Technology (IVT) team can be reached at 1-800-392-3673 (select #1 for English, #2 for Spanish, and then select #3).

2013 Focus ST Happy

I really like my 2013 Focus ST3. My only issue is with the updating of the Sync and Nav system. I need to perform an update but I am having difficulty getting the download off the Sync Site.

The car runs great, I am getting about 27 mpg using premium and in the small amount of snow we have had in St. Louis the Focus with winter tires has been a good driver.

Only, things I wish it had are:
  • a Heads up Display
  • Touch Sync had a hard drive you could save songs to, like my girl friends 2012 Ford Escape
and I wish that Ford rebates were good for the ST so I would have gotten a better price.

If you've monitored the Fanatic site for long you know there are some with issues and others who have practically no issues, but you get that with about any car you'd own and this one is no different.

Absolutely love my Focus, to me it's one of the sportiest cars on the road.
