Ford Focus hatchback (2011-2014) review: owner reviews

"The Focus is great to drive, full of technology and very refined, but a small boot means it’s not the most practical five-door around."

My car was great to drive when I first bought it second hand few years ago. Then it was one thing after another. For ages my car went into limp-home mode and the fault was traced to the high pressure fuel pump. The car was just out of warranty. Because of the work over the top of my engine a coolant pipe and the tank split. Both been replaced and the pipe was modified. Since then it has had two recalls both software messages for low coolant and slipping clutch. It has had the clutch replaced under warranty. Still to this day it's losing quite a bit of engine coolant. I can't wait to get rid.

In the time I've had the car, the front drivers electric window motor went, the heater control has been replaced twice, and one engine sensor has been replaced. The brakes discs / pads have been replaced, but it's got the original clutch and exhaust . Not bad for a car of it's age.

Most spare can be purchased from various dealers but they may need to be 'flashed' by the dealer which makes things expensive. To change a rear light bulb needs a special star shaped screwdriver bits to remove the rear light cluster which is a very time consuming task when it is at night time & raining.

Overall I am quite satisfied with the car, but it has the problem that the leads/plugs are immediately below the washers and keep getting clogged up with water, I have now had to replace the coil pack twice in three years. This is a real bug.

Being Ford, they are not too expensive for maintenance/spareparts but am finding fuel costs are quite high.

Fuel costs are high but parts can be reasonable due to commonality of vehicle.

ONLY HAD A PROBLEM CAUSED BY CONTAMINATED FUEL, WHICH BY THE FUEL SYSTEM DESIGN WAS EASY(ISH) TO FIX MYSELF. a FEW MINOR ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS (BLOWN BULBS AND INSTRUMENT LIGHTS ) WHICH WERE PROBABLY TRIGGERED BY A REAR END SHUNT!

IT HAS STARTED TO USE A LITTLE OIL/ SMALL QTY, BUT THE ENGINE HAS NOW DONE 111000 MILES. FUEL ECONOMY IS A LITTLE POORER THAN I WOULD LIKE AND CAN FALL TO 33MPG!!, HAS NEVER ACHIEVED THE ADVERTISED FIGURES, EVEN WITH CAREFUL DRIVING!
