2000 Ford Focus LX 4dr Sedan


Review

I have driven my car since I bought it because I was a single parent and could get free labor to fix it and could not afford to buy a new car. This car is really bad. It is great because it still runs but it had to have 2 ignition switches, countless brakes, rotors and tires every 20,000 miles. We have lifetime brakes now and it is eating them too. It had to have a new motor at only 90,000 miles in 2005. It dropped a valve seat. New oxygen sensors twice. It now shakes and rattles the dash sounds horrible.


Favorite Features

Handling and gas mileage.


Suggested Improvements

Everything else.

Review

This car is the best car I've ever had. I bought it used, and it was a rental before it went up for sale. Sounds like a horror story right? WRONG! This car is fantastic. I love it. It is beyond reliable. I've had it going on 2 years, put 13000 miles on it, drive it every single day, and it just gets better and better. I've only had to deal with a thermostat, 1 recall, one old dead battery and 1 old dead battery cable. Even with those problems though, it would get me where I needed to go, no matter what. I love it, and I haven't read any good reviews so here's one. Best Car Ever! And adorable to boot! Main points: uber reliable, and if something does go awry, VERY simple to fix.


Favorite Features

Adorable body, super reliable, simple to fix, and well ... he's my little buddy and I love him! Best car ever!


Suggested Improvements

It rattles a little. But, not real bothersome for me.

Review

I bought this new after having a great experience with a '93 Escort. There have been many recalls, transmission leak, ignition column broke, a hole in a PVC tube (at least this is what the dealer called it). Normally, I like to keep my vehicles for 100k miles, but it's broken down 3 times this year already. I will never buy a Ford again. The resale value is terrible too.


Favorite Features

None.


Suggested Improvements

Unless you like getting getting your car repaired, buy something else.
