Ford Focus problems and owner complaints

Ford Focus problems and owner complaints are varied among 2013 - 2017 model years. This website provides information to consumers that can be used to alleviate the problems they may be experiencing with their Focus, and/or legal remedies available to them under state lemon laws.

These owner problems and complaints may include:

  • “CHECK ENGINE” warning light illumination

  • Loss of power, hard-start, engine “stalling”, no-start and other engine operational issues

  • Suspension and brake problems.

  • Air conditioning system problems.

  • SYNC / MY TOUCH malfunctions or failures

  • Tire Pressure warning light is illuminated, or SRS/airbag warning lights for its safety systems.

  • On the 2013 - 2017 Ford Focus, PowerShift automatic transmission problems (this is actually an electronically shifting/ controlled dry clutch gearbox). Transmission engagement and shifting problems on 2013 - 2017 model-year Focus. Manual transmission gearbox/clutch problems.

  • Steering/power steering/ alignment/pulling problems.

Ford Motor Company, and its authorized Ford dealers are aware of the various problem(s) with the 2013 - 2017 model-year Ford Focus compact. Many dealers are performing “software updates” to the engine and transmission systems on the 2013 - 2017 PowerShift automatic models, as well as software updates and recalls on the SYNC/MYTOUCH systems. Many 2013 - 2017 owners are receiving letters extending the warranty on the PowerShift automatically shifting transmission for the clutch, seals and software updates.

Here is what some dealers are doing in an attempt to correct the issues with these vehicles:

  • “Clearing” DTC’s (Diagnostic Trouble Codes)

  • Updating software to the engine and/or transmission computer

  • Contacting Ford Technical Support HOTLINE.

  • Performing TSB’s (Technical Service Bulletins) or NHTSA mandated Safety Recalls.

  • Contacting/referencing Ford “Oasis” online shop information system, and following “Oasis” topics repairs.

  •  Awaiting further instructions from Ford Technical Support HOTLINE for problems that cannot be remedied by the above, or simply that Ford Engineering has the issue “under investigation”, but with no current fix available.
