Review

I think the Focus is a great car for
the money. Looking at some of the
other reviews made me realize that
people get, what they pay for. I have
only had one problem with my Focus,
and luckily my Brother is a Ford
technican, and advised me the fuel
pump was being recalled. In a little
over a year I have about 50,000 miles
on my Focus and am still loving it!!!
Ford did a great Job!


Best Features

Sony stero system, 6 disc cd changer, leather seats and wheels!


Worst Features

Make the back end a little lower! Can't see to back up!

Review

After reading some of these reviews I
felt as if I needed to submit one to
defend this car a bit! I'm not an avid
supporter of any car make, rather a
person who buys a car out of
necessity! I drive alot! I've owned 7
new cars in the past and believe it or
not,the Focus has been the best!
Recalls don't bother me as long as the
problems are corrected. This vehicle
has 112,000 and still runs perfect.
There may not be the same amount of
zip when I first drove off the lot,
but the Focus has been very good to
me. There have been no major repair
expenses other than brakes, tires, and
a set of spark plugs and wires! So,
don't believe all of the hype!


Best Features

Style


Worst Features

The fuel economy isn't as good as Ford claims. I average around 22MPG between city and highway!

Review

I owned this vehicle for just under
four years and 85,000 miles. The
recalls were annoying and I stopped
getting them corrected, which actually
led to one problem. The tires wear out
quickly, as do the brakes. Ford did
replace all the brakes free of charge
after one year. I had the rear left
wheel bearing break at about 70K miles.
I think this was a recall issue. I had
several problems with a bad battery
cable causing the car not to start (or
die in traffic). I think the car
juiced batteries. I went through 3 in
four years. Other than
tires/brakes/wheel bearing, the only
other problem was a broken air hose
(about $125 repair).


Best Features

Large trunk, you feel high in the vehicle so you can see the road and surroundings pretty well.


Worst Features

Arm rests should be standard. The one I got didn't have one. The batteries are "reversed polarity" which makes it tricky to find the correct size at places like Wal-Mart.

Review

I have had several recalls on this car,
It continues to fall apart on me so I
am trading it in for a VW.

When im using the AC it leaks on the
inside of the car! I had that fixed 8
times and it is still not fixed!

I have also had key problems!
