Are you considering buying or leasing a new Ford Focus? You might want to reconsider. As you search for your next sedan, examining the vehicle’s reviews are just as important as checking its price and payment. Before you decide to purchase a new Ford Focus, take a closer at its history of recalls and complaints.
Ford recently recalled nearly 1.5 million Ford Focus sedans for issues with stalling. The recall affected the 2012 through 2018 model-year Focus vehicles. In addition to this issue, the Ford Focus has been the subject of consumer complaints for many years.
The Ford Focus has been described as having a range of issues like hesitation and jerking when starting from a stop, power steering failure and concerns with acceleration according to carcomplaints.com. Many drivers have also complained about the high-costs associated with getting these issues fixed.
If you want to avoid engine and transmission issues, we suggest you steer away from a new Ford Focus. Volkswagen has excellent, German-engineered sedans like the redesigned 2019 VW Jetta and upcoming 2020 VW Passat. Volkswagen also comes with America’s Best Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty. That’s double the basic coverage offered on most vehicles! So even if an issue does arise, you’ll have peace of mind knowing it’s covered. Check out our current offers on the Jetta.
