Asked by Dave Torkington
Your reader Gordon James asked about replacing his Holden Cruze SRI 1.6 Turbo hatch and definitely not wanting CVT or dual-clutch type automatic. Why not a Ford Focus? The auto is no longer a Powershift, from my understanding a six-speed conventional auto and just what he is looking for. I have a Fiesta 2012 manual and have had no issues with it over 67,000km so far. I think it's just the Powershift transmission in the Focus and Fiesta that's a problem, the rest of the cars are fine and they drive well.
