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.
Jamie B,

I know that must have been aggravating to have such issues in your rental car. I urge you to test drive a new Focus at the dealer to see how great they can be. Please let me know if I can answer any questions.
