I recently had a customer that no longer needed one of their sedans. They turned it in and very shortly after, it's replacement arrived. So I picked it up to use in our office. It is a Kona Blue 2012 Focus. Since I picked it up on July 5th, I've put 965 miles on it (it had 3 on it shen I got the keys). 2 seperate 3 day trips. Overall I really liked the car. Seats have good bolstering. Ride is a little stiff, but that doesn't bother me. Controls took some getting used to, but that fell into place quickly. Good size trunk for the size of the car (sedan, not 5 door). It did a lot of idling in some locations due to the heat, and the DIC is showing an average of 35.4 mpg. Accelerating is pretty good, but you can feel the A/C pulling some power (one day it hit 115*). So that had to be tolerated. Did have 4 in it at one time, and the rear seat passengers didn't complain about room (although in looking, it is not much, would advise for adults on long trips). Lights and visiblity were very good. I really liked the side mirrors.
Complaints, there is no inside release for the trunk. I felt this was odd. The 6 speed has had complaints of a "studdering" on take off. I felt this some, but might not have noticed or though about it much if I didn't know about it already. Ford say's it will go away by 1,000 miles (stating the dual clutch has to set in), well it's at 965 and still there..... So we will just have to wait and see. Came with front mats, but apparently the rear ones are optional.
This is pretty much a base model, so it wasn't loaded. But it had PW and locks, cruise, CD, remote entry, auto, fogs, etc. Overall, it was a nice car to drive around in.
