2000 Ford Focus LX 4dr Sedan


Review

Bought the car in 2000. Windshield broke in 5 months. Brakes and tires have always been bad, needing to be changed every 15 to 20 thousand miles. Replaced rotors, calipers, ignition and a tune-up was done at 35,000 miles. The Focus would be a great car if it worked properly, or if at least the dealer/manufacturer would take care of common problems.


Favorite Features

I like how it handles when everything works and it's cute. The gas mileage for highway use isn't bad either.


Suggested Improvements

Just junk the car and start from scratch.

Review

Fuel pump has gone out more times than I can count. Electrical everything goes out more times than Heinz has ketchup...good luck to anyone who buys one of these damn things! Get a good warranty.

Don't even get me started.

Review

Constant brake problems, car feels like it is slowly falling apart under 30,000 miles. Will never buy Ford again!


Favorite Features

Handles turns well.


Suggested Improvements

Better brakes, attention to detail for the interior (adjustable seat does not come high enough, radio stopped working at 20,000 miles).

Review

8 recalls speak for themselves. Plus new tires every 38,000 miles. Car only gets 20 miles per gallon. With its size that's terrible. I am expecting 2 more recalls.


Favorite Features

It has a nice radio


Suggested Improvements

Buy toyota

Review

I have had no problems with the car. Other than the recalls, which are fine as long as they fix the problem, the only negative is that the tires and brakes wear out far too quickly (30,000 miles). Car is enjoyable and has had no need for a mechanic other than routine maintenance.


Favorite Features

The Focus has a large interior which makes it comfortable for even large people like me (6'5").


Suggested Improvements

The interior materials are cheap, the brakes need to last longer, as do the factory tires.
