Great car

published

I have owned it for 5 years and only had one issue which was the water pump slowly leaking. It wasn't a big issue as it was only a few drops occasionally so I had to top it up about once a month. Other than that it's been fantastic. I also have a heavy foot so It gets driven hard more often than not. It's great on fuel as I drive about 100ks a day so going from a Falcon to this has really cut the fuel bill. Also it's a manual so doesn't have the auto issues. I would recommend this car to anyone as long as it's a manual not auto and it's technology for the year is absolutely great.

Purchased in for $10,000.

Good car but early issues with vibration & cylinder deactivation - dealer downplays the issues. Avoid!

Reliable Little Family Car

published

I use this car every single day - she's been on road trips from Melbourne to QLD and back and not skipped a beat.
Bought second-hand through Grays Online at only 80,000kms she's been a fabulous family car for us. All of the interior is great and hasn't cracked or come apart.
Only thing I would say is that there's a metal plate in the boot that means that when you pull the back seats forward it's not completely open so if you have a large item you want to fit in the boot and flatten the back seats you may not be able to fit it in.

Purchased in for $4,600.

Great drives smoothly

published

Use car daily going to work I get it regular services.
The only thing I don't like is if your are going through a school during holiday season and you are doing the normal speed limit it will start beeping and sending caution until you slow down if you do not slow down it will brake suddenly so I have to go 40 even during school holidays so avoid and school zones

Does the job without issues... very happy!

published

I drive my car doing lots of country miles (when not in lock down) and the little Foci does it with easy and economy!!! I drive the car every day and have done a couple of runs from country SA to Sydney (when not in lockdown)... and it was very surprisingly good on the open road getting 4.8L/100k average each time and the added ability to just hit the loud pedal and zing past trucks and traffic. I am 110kg and the seats were comfy and supportive, infotainment was excellent, GPS was clear and precise and took the best route everytime!!! (Navman GPS has been drawered) I have only had 2 services and they are capped. No issues at all so far... Over all it has power, economy, comfort and tech.

Purchased in at Stillwell Ford for $23,000.

Hidden gem

published

This review is for a 2020 ST Line . I have had this car for 6 months and enjoyed every moment of the drive . I have owned well over 30 cars and I would rate this as the best of them all ( so far ). I am retired and do around 25k a year . This is an auto . I research everything to the nth degree and had pretty much decided on a Kia Cerato GT . The second drive of the Kia left me a little underwhelmed , so I went next door on a whim to give the Ford a go . I was blown away ! I signed up for it straight away . A few days later the Kia rep called me to see what I had decided . When I told him the Ford was way better , he said " yes ,I agree"
It is the best car in this class by a mile. Just go and drive it .

transmission clutch shudder

published

Have car back into dealer this week as slipping in gear then not being able to get reverse gear. This will be the 7th or 8th time the same problem has been fixed and quite frankly I'm am over it. I travel on my own a lot and never know if or when this problem will happen again it's quite frightening. Car manufactured December 2012 and I purchased it in June 2013. I love a lot of thing about it except for gearbox.

Purchased in for $21,000.
