Ford Focus CC convertible owner reviews

"Despite respectable handling, a spacious cabin and an electrically-operated metal folding roof, the Focus CC fails to serve up the tasty dish its ingredients promise."

I have had several times when engine just went into limp mode and then restarted. I have just suffered a complete engine stop on route to south of Spain and car had to be recovered ( Green Flag were very good). The garage replaced a split hose on the engine after a week waiting part from Germany. Cost 380 Euros. Off we went again, but after two hours we stopped at filling station for a comfort break and then it wouldn't start. It would turn over but not fire and after waiting 30 mins for the computer to reset it would still not start. Help arrived with local breakdown truck. The driver tried to start car and said it sounded as there was no fuel but the gauge said half full. We recalled Green Flag, again very helpful. After recovery, the garage mechanic pulled off the engine cover and looked at the fuel pipe between the pump and injector and there was what looked like air in the pipe which he then disconnected blow through with a diesel pump, reconnected and the engine started at the first turn. Cost 35 euros cash, great ! Good old fashion country garage. So we arrive at our destination in Murcia and following morning car starts first time and off we go shopping and on return I open bonnet and check the fuel line and there were 3 small air or water bubbles once again in the line !!!!!.
Reliability

Except for the above fuel problem the car has been very reliable on our twice a year trips to south of Spain.

Excellant motorway performance

As the CC has a heavy hood and we drive at 75mph !! all the time in Spain I think 46 to 48 mpg is very good

1/ All 4 alloy wheels have corroded. 2 were resurfaced under warranty, one outside warranty with a small contribution from me, and the 4th showed signs after about 2 years but as each time the wheels have to be sent away to Ford for at least a week, I gave up. 2/ The car has been in twice under warranty for a leaking roof seal but this has now developed again (I keep a beach towel in the boot to catch the drips) 3/ Passenger side window switch failed. 4/ Rear view mirror "Auto anti dazzle" failed
Running Cost

2 out of 5

Consumption runs at between 29 - 30mpg. On a long motorway run this may reach 35 - 37mpg. I have had many larger 2 litre cars, including carltons, omegas, Volvo S60s and X Types and all of them were far more economical.

It's a nice car, good shape and doesn't look funny. It's better than voxhaul... It's a reliable car and drives pretty fast. It fits my height so i don't have to cramp up in it. I would always go for ford focus, especially st.

The car has been a complete disappointment. When the fuel got down to the last third of the tank (between 69 and 129 miles showing on the trip computer), the car would just stop running (no fuel getting through). Put in some fuel (5 ltrs from the aa), and the car would restart (after being bleed). This has happened 6 times so far. Now the car is in the dealer with a leaking roof. The engine of this car was seiged on the car's first service, when returning the car to my home. I had a courtesy for 4 weeks whilst they rebult the engine. I have had a total of 10 weeks with a courtesy car. Not good!

Up until a year ago the car was great and very reliable but since then there have been several breakdowns due to mechanical/electrial problems which have tarnished my views on the cars reliability. The last 2 breakdowns were alomist identical electrical issues due to water ingress which have cost me over £500 to fix each time. Despite it being a recurrence of the essentially same problem it took 13 days to be repaired last time which was a serious inconvenience.
