Ford Focus 2012: Is it good on the highway?

I'm looking for a 4-cylinder car around 2012 to travel on freeways to work everyday for a 60 km round trip. I've heard mixed messages about the Focus. Any help would be great.

The Focus is a good car with a serious flaw; it has a dual-clutch automatic transmission that gives trouble. I would happily have a 2012 Focus with a manual gearbox, but I wouldn't buy one with a dual-clutch auto. I'd be looking at a Japanese or Korean brand and going for something like a Mazda 3, Honda Civic or Accord, Hyundai Elantra with a good record of reliability.
