Ford Focus 2012 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Focus 2012 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • I need a new front driver's door for my 2014 Ford Focus, will a 2012 or 2016 Ford Focus door work?

    Ford used the same body on its Focus from 2011 until the model was replaced in 2018. On that basis, the front door from either of the cars you’ve listed should fit your car perfectly. You don’t even need to worry about finding a door from a sedan or hatch as opposed to a two-door Focus, as Ford didn’t offer that model in Australia in a two or three-door (which would have had longer doors). Even the sportiest Focus, the ST, was a five-door hatchback. Ford did give the Focus a mild facelift in 2015, but the styling changes were restricted to the front and rear, with the doors not altering at all.

    Finding a second-hand door shouldn’t present too many problems the Focus sold in reasonable numbers and many ended up in recycling yards. You might even strike it really lucky and find the door in the same colour as your car which might negate the need to have it painted.

  • Ford Focus 2012: Does the manual gearbox have problems?

    The auto had serious problems with the Powershift dual-clutch automatic transmission, so serious that it’s a car to avoid, but of course those problems don’t affect cars with a manual gearbox. The manual is a good little car that can be bought with confidence.

  • My dealer won't give me the value of my car

    I assume that the value Ford has put on your car isn’t to your liking. The trade-in value of your car is $4300-$5700, and I would guess Ford’s value is somewhere in that range. All you can do is to try and negotiate a more satisfactory deal.

  • Is a 2012 Ford Focus affected by the Powershift dual-clutch transmission problems?

    Not all cars with the Powershift have been affected, but many have and it’s impossible to say yours won’t be at some time. If the deal with your dad is a good one, and it seems as though it is, then it’s probably worth taking the risk. If you can feel any shuddering when you drive it then it’s likely you could have a problem; if you don’t then you could be in the clear. It’s not really dangerous to drive it, but it is annoying.
