Owner of my first Ford, 2012 Focus SE/Sport Package! This is the first car to make me smile while driving it since owning my 2000 Trans Am back in 2002. Couldn't be happier. :)

I haven't seen anyone bash the 12 Focus, but I can see that the styling would be fairly polarizing...

Look around at some of the threads in this forum about the 2012 DCT/Powershift transmission or about MFT. Yeah, lots of bashing going on.

seems to border on self-loathing for buying such a pile! But I do see the point of those who have legit issues...having a brand new car with a blender for a transmission would be a major bummer...Imagine gettng her home, then going out that night to get some Ice cream, and....gggggggrrrrrrrriiind! No issues on mine other than the door seals tend to pop off if your coat catches em. Other than that, no issues here.

I love my Focus. It is my first American car and they did it right. Guess us happy owners are out driving rather than posting.

That does make sense. I would gripe too if that happened. But I don't have MFT, so there's only the transmission for me to gripe about, which actually doesn't suck nearly as much for me as I've been told it should.

I have an SE with 5 speed manual. My trade was a 2010 Subaru Legacy with CVT and I hated that transmission. But then I have always preferred manuals. No car is without some issues, I hope Ford figures out how to make software improvements with the automatic for the sake of the people having issues.

Just bought my 12 Blue Candy Titanium last night. Loving it, my first Ford. Traded in a Nissan Juke and I'm looking forward to getting better MPG and getting familiar with all the technology the car has.
