FOCUS = Fix Or Curse Until Stolen
By Jeff on

Vehicle

2000 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan

Review

This car is an absolute piece of garbage. I got it as a commuter car for nothing but highway driving. I drive 60 miles a day at 65 in a straight line. Where do I begin to describe the problems? The interior is cheap and flimsy. The radio dial literally melts in high heat. The car feels like it will fall apart at 65. Awful road noise. The seats seem to consist of a cloth, cardboard, and styrofoam mixture. Reliability is terrible. I had it in the shop for routine mechanical and electrical problems every 6 months. It once shut off on a highway, literally turning off at 60 mph. Do not, under any circumstances, buy this car. Spend the extra money on a civic and save on repairs.

Favorite Features

Got rid of it.

Suggested Improvements

Don't build any more of them. For existing Focus owners, a can of gasoline and properly applied matches should reduce mechanical problems.
