Ford Focus 2012: Is it good on the highway?

Answered by CarsGuide 24 Mar 2017

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.

There's nothing you can do about it without repainting the car. As for the scratching I would recommend regular polishing to give the surface maximum protection.
