Was working fine (power, mileage) until motor started to stall (and die) in the middle of the freeway (not fun). Ford dealer has no clue. Had 4 recalls performed, including a fuel delivery module replacement, and none solved the problem. Had to rent a car for 1 week while Ford tried to find the problem. In the end I bought a Toyota. Ford Focus 2000 is NOT a reliable car.
Size, horsepower, hatchback, interior space and comfort, design, audio sound quality.
Too many problems (electric system stinks: sensors, battery, onboard computer).
