Here's a partial list in order of
importance: cruise control (3 times),
Horn (twice), water pump exploding
($350), on-board computer system
($750), engine lights consistently
staying on keeping me from passing
emissions ($1000) and the worst of them
all: the engine mounts breaking and my
engine falling out! This ran me
another $1,000. Also, I had two minor
wrecks at less than 15 MPH. The damage
due to those was amazing as the shoddy
workmanship really showed. I couldn't
have made a worse choice than the Focus.
Nice sound system for factory. Large
trunk. It's a fun drive for its class.
You just have to make a car that
doesn't fall apart! It's awful how
American automobiles can't compete in
the entry class of cars. Incidently,
I just bought a 2000 Accord.
