2000 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan

Review

I owned this vehicle for just under four years and 85,000 miles. The recalls were annoying and I stopped getting them corrected, which actually led to one problem. The tires wear out quickly, as do the brakes. Ford did replace all the brakes free of charge after one year. I had the rear left wheel bearing break at about 70K miles. I think this was a recall issue. I had several problems with a bad battery cable causing the car not to start (or die in traffic). I think the car juiced batteries. I went through 3 in four years. Other than tires/brakes/wheel bearing, the only other problem was a broken air hose (about $125 repair).

Favorite Features

Large trunk, you feel high in the vehicle so you can see the road and surroundings pretty well.

Suggested Improvements

Arm rests should be standard. The one I got didn't have one. The batteries are "reversed polarity" which makes it tricky to find the correct size at places like Wal-Mart.
