I've had good luck with my 2000 Focus ZX3, aside from 4 or 5 recall notices. Recalls are annoying, but none of the problems actually occurred with my car.
Other than recalls, I haven't had to take the car back to the dealership.
tilt/telescoping steering wheel, CD player
The automatic power door locks are an annoyance. Too much road noise
