Ford Focus Titanium 2013 : What is the average fuel consumption?

Answered by CarsGuide 19 Jul 2019

The claimed average for your car is 6.7 L/100 km. It would be higher if it were driven around town – 9.4 L/100 km – but a less – 5.2 L/100 km – if only driven in the country. But remember that these so-called claimed figures are a guide only and not necessarily what you might get from your car.

2013 Ford Focus Trend transmission failure

Answered by CarsGuide 8 Dec 2017

The trade-in value is appallingly low; it should be around $7000. If you haven’t already talked directly to Ford then do so (13 3673) and explain your concerns with the car, and request a better deal. If that fails to get a satisfactory response then go to the ACCC or VCAT.

Problems with gearbox on 2013 Ford Focus

Answered by CarsGuide 10 Jul 2017

If only it was that easy. I assume that it’s not giving you any trouble now, but if it is you could get it repaired under the warranty. If it’s not I don’t see you have grounds for a full refund, even though that model has a poor reputation for its transmission troubles. If you had done your homework before buying it you would have found lots of reports on the troublesome transmission.

2013 Ford Focus transmission issues

Answered by CarsGuide 9 Jun 2017

I can only assume your car has the dual-clutch automatic transmission. If so the bearing problem could conceivably be related to the transmission issues.

Focus clutch shuddering

Answered by CarsGuide 12 Aug 2016

There are no hard and fast rules unfortunately, so you are relying on your skills of negotiation and Ford doing the right thing. I think you should get your money back, but that's being unrealistic. Ford has been doing deals to buy cars back, and that would appear to be your best bet to get out of the car. The dealer would probably offer you $14,500 to $16,500 as a trade-in, but your car is worth more like $18,000-$20,000 as a private sale, which is the minimum I would be trying to get Ford to pay.

There are known problems with the double-clutch gearbox in the Focus and there is a class action under way from some unhappy owners. But I have had success for several CarsGuide readers in getting their cars right.

What's a good SUV that's easy to get into?

Answered by CarsGuide 6 Jun 2016

The CX-3 is the best in the baby class and gets The Tick. It’s not great for value and could be a bit small. You should also check the latest Subaru Forester, which is much improved.

Focus transmission problems

Answered by CarsGuide 6 May 2016

Is it fair? Yes, I think it is, but do I think will get a full refund, no I don't. I reckon what they've offered you is not a bad deal, it's one I would accept to get out of the car and get on with your life without any further anguish.
