The Expensive Economy Car
By Jennifer L. on
Vehicle
2000 Ford Focus LX 4dr Sedan
Review
This car has a lot of interior space for a compact car, and leg and head room are a feat of engineering genius. I have no complaints about the simple, ergonomic and functional accessories. Fantastic handling and manouverability, a tough little exterior, and great fuel economy. Problem is $500 rotors that can't be turned and need replacing every 10k miles. The brakes never make a sound so you can't tell when the pads are worn. Why build an economy car with BMW rotors? Remember when Ford used MacPherson Struts on the 1980 Ford Fairmont? The logic of this escapes me. Also if you have a chance, look at the FordFocusBrakeProblems.com site.
Favorite Features
Lots of leg, head, and trunk room. Organization of interior seems natural and intellinent. Good sound systems, and the 5 speed has great pick-up for a four-banger.
Suggested Improvements
Rotors! Consistency! Lose some of the cheaper nobs, give it better interior material (that cloth looks like a rug design in a daycare center) and make it a car that a person over the age of 20 would feel good in.
