I bought a 2012 focus almost a year ago. My power steering is completely out and the warranty ended just before it happened. As a kid my parents had 2 Fords. After the second one they vowed they would never buy another Ford again. I continuously heard good things about the focus so decided to purchase one. I now see why my parents feel the way they do. My 2002 Mitsubishi with almost triple the amount of miles on it drives a lot better.
