Ford Focus 2015: How reliable is it compared to competitors?

Is the 2015 Ford Focus car a good buy reliability wise? How does it compare to the Mazda 3, and the Toyota Corolla? I'm looking for something reliable, but have heard that there are issues with the Focus.

Ford changed from the LW model to the LZ in 2015. The LW had a dual-clutch automatic, which was very problematic and should be avoided; the later LZ had a regular automatic transmission and has none of the problems that beset the LW. In short the LZ is worth buying, and can be compared to the Mazda3 and Toyota Corolla for reliability.
