10. Ford Focus
For the 2020 year, the Focus is on its way out. So it’s understandable why there are no major changes to the car. When it comes to compact cars, the Focus has never been anything innovative or special. Perhaps that’s why Ford is giving it the ax. The Focus has routinely been billed as unreliable by Consumer Reports. There are issues with reliability in the transmission and vehicle electrical. The Focus utilizes in a four-cylinder engine that offers great gas mileage, but the trade-off is an uninspiring ride.
Even in the ST trim, the Focus manages to be overpriced in a market that’s saturated with household names such as the Corolla and Civic. The base trim of the Focus plays on the sportiness of the car. And while the Focus does offer more standard features than any other, it’s just not enough. The Focus has gained a reputation for shoddy reliability. With the 2020 model year, the car hasn’t gained any ground.
With the continuing popularity of crossover vehicles, Ford has decided to phase out all of the sedans in the lineup. The Focus is one of the models that’s going to get the ax, which means that the 2020 model year is one of its final. There are better cars that you can get in this price range, and with a better reliability rating.
