The third generation “global” Ford Focus (2012-2018) is known for a few things — primarily it gets a bad rap for its dual-clutch automatic “powershift” transmission, which has dry clutches that judder and shudder like Elvis’ hips, and the 1.6 liter EcoBoost engine is known to cause fires when coolant isn’t circulating properly…but this next car will have neither of those problems because it has had an engine/transmission swap from a Focus ST hatchback. More power, more fun, less shudder, less fire. Win win. Find this 2013 Ford Focus ST offered for $16,500 in Mason, OH via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
