A coworker of mine has the same generation regular Focus. He has had numerous issues with the electrical wiring in the car. His car maybe has 100k miles? The 10-spd automatic transmission on the Focus and Fiesta is probably one of the worst in history along with Nissan's CVTs, but that isn't an issue for an EV.

Ford cars always make me leery from what I've heard of them, but I haven't owned one so I can't speak from that angle. Many manufacturers with sub-par cars make excellent EVs (Nissan Leaf vs other CVT Nissans, for example). I've heard good things about the Cmax, but haven't read much about the Focus EV. I'd surmise they're pretty similar aside from the Cmax still having a gasoline engine.

Are you dissatisfied with the Mirage already?
