Used Car of the Day: 2014 Ford Focus Titanium Sedan

We're doing something a bit different for the UCOTD today -- we're focusing (sorry) on a 2014 Ford Focus Titanium sedan.

In a way, this is a bonus UCOTD, since we ran this news story earlier, but we're keeping with our daily cadence.

This Focus makes our cut because it has just 36K miles and the price is ... well the seller is open to offers.

The seller points out it could be easily made into a ST-style Focus sedan, and that the car has only had one owner. It has the Titanium handling package, a moonroof, tinted windows, and upgraded audio.

The seller claims it has been well-maintained and it has run winter tires during snow season -- and it's a Minnesota-based car.

Finally, there are a couple of open recalls that have yet to be done.

Check it out here.

    A shame about the Focus. A playful and willing chassis let down by a terrible transmission. The Class Action lawsuits for this transmission are legendary.

    These cars hit rock bottom in value by the mid 2010s when the DCT related lawsuits came in droves. Too bad because other than that poor transmission and limited legroom, these are very good handling and well equipped vehicles with decent build quality and materials.

    We can all be very positive it was the DCT fiasco what ruined this nameplate for North America rather than the shift from sedans and HB to CUVs.

    The only upside is manual transmission vehicles were also affected by the low resale value, which make them an excellent buy.

      We owned a 5 spd 2012 Fiesta sedan we only paid $3K 3 years ago and only needed a battery, a window regulator, ball joints and 5K mile oil changes. Sold it 2 months ago for more money than I paid for back in May 20'. Our plan was to replace it with a Focus but we just couldn't find a +2015 with a 5 spd in decent condition

    Shame about the DCT. If this had a manual it would be a great daily driver.

    Bless Mazda for sticking with traditional 6 speed automatic. If only Ford was as intelligent as Mazda.
