2000 Ford Focus Sony Limited 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought this car after a deployment to Germany, where I got the chance to drive a Focus on the Autobahn. German model had a Turbo-diesel and four wheel disks, which aren't available here but made the highspeed rocket ride more controlable and economic-topped out at 220 km/Hr, approx 140 MPH. Great car! Mine makes noises when going over dips and bumps in the road. There is also a "clicking" noise that comes from the gear box while idling in neutral. Ford build quality leaves much to be desired, and even though I like the Focus I won't get another one.It's still a fun car, fair to good all around. Good stereo, but alas not the best of the Xplode line either.

Favorite Features

Suspension firm, corners well and gets great mileage on the highway.

Suggested Improvements

Ford needs to actually build a car that won't die at 100,000 miles, or earlier. The quality of parts and build is cheap, lowest bidder mentality. I wish that Ford was really "Quality #1" instead of "Quantity #1"
