These symptoms can certainly be connected to transmission problems, but they can be related to other vehicle issues, too. If your transmission did need to be replaced, according to Kelley Blue Book, you could expect a fair 2012 Ford Focus transmission replacement cost to fall somewhere between $4,700 and $5,100.
Your actual 2012 Ford Focus transmission replacement cost could vary depending on different factors, like:
  • The cost of the replacement transmission
  • Labor costs in your area
  • How long the transmission replacement takes
It’s quite possible the issues you’re describing might not necessarily require a transmission replacement. If all you needed was a transmission fluid change, you could expect to spend far less—usually about $80 to $250. Regardless, it would be a good idea to take your car to an auto shop so a mechanic could take a look at it for you.
