Terrible Transmission

Edmunds.com logo Edmunds.com 8/17/2015 Adam Leibenguth

I'm usually not one to write a review on anything, but I just couldn't get over the terrible transmission on the 2014 Ford Focus automatic. I am at 12.5k miles, and the jerking/shaking between 1st and 2nd gear is consistently getting worse. I first noticed it around 5-7k miles and thought it was just in my head, but a few thousand miles later it was obvious to anyone riding along. From an outside perspective, I must look like a man who can't drive a manual car. The car jerks the worst if I'm starting out from an incline. Once I get to 2nd gear the car seems fine, but living in a city with many stops, it is very uncomfortable. If only I had read some of these reviews earlier.
