Have not come across any issues! If you have the Mazda LF-DE engine in your Ford Focus you most likely will not have trans problems. If you have the seconds generation Focus with an engine ranging from the 1.8 to the 2.5 you will have the Mazda engine, anything smaller is a rehashed first generation Zetec renamed Duratec. As for auto transmissions only the first generation Focus had some trans problems which were addressed in the second generation and was also a Mazda transmission. So if you have the first generation Focus you may have problems on the horizon!

I was just wondering if Ford Focus Sedan 2010 was reliable as a first car, as well as does it use up alot of petrol?

These are tremendously unreliable cars. The Powershift transmission (dual clutch) has a design defect and Ford is extremely unhelpful at fixing it. In fact there is a class action lawsuit about it about to go live. More information at my blog: [link removed]
Buy a Mazda3 or a Hyundai i30 instead.
