I had the bad luck to rent a 2012 Ford Focus from the Enterprise rental car in Morristown, NJ. The car had 3000 miles on it, and, I later was told, had been in the shop six times for transmission problems. I was told this after I drove a horrifying hour through rough shifting and terrible shaking, only to have the Focus finally give me the dashboard readout "transmission failed, seek service immediately," or something like that. When I shifted into reverse it sounded like something was going to fall out the bottom of the car! Luckily I was able to switch to another rental car. But I will never buy a Ford Focus if that's the kind of junk Ford is selling.
