Hi there. Unfortunately, without inspecting your Ford Focus to determine what’s causing the vehicle to have difficulty it’s not possible for us to give you a good recommendation. However, I can say that several 2010 - 2014 Ford Focus’ have major transmission issues that have resulted in several dissatisfied customers with Ford. You might want to contact a local transmission shop to have them inspect your car’s transmission and determine if it’s worth keeping or selling your vehicle.
