2000 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan
Review
Bought brand new, now at 118K, at the time there wasn't many options for a small wagon. Reliability has been AWFUL. O2 sensor is always malfunctioning ..check engine light can only be off for a week or so, learned to live with. Many expensive parts; ABS sensor, calipers, wiring, wheel bearings, front suspension. Now tranny starting to act weird, also many recalls have been tiresome (lost track, at least 10 of them). Perhaps Ford has worked out the problems, they now offer longer warantee, (we had 3 yr, 36k mile), but I don't appreciate paying to be a tester. Interior is cheap, stereo is cheap. Cup holders, WHO CARES? (they are bad though). Seats are like boards.
Favorite Features
Space, I am 6'3" 230 lbs, and can sit comfortably. Lots of cargo space in the back. Reasonably quiet for a small car once you get some decent tires on it. Handles great in snow with studded snow tires, will go anywhere.
Suggested Improvements
Make it work like it should. I don't mind cheapness in a cheap car, but it needs functionality and reliability. Too bad Ford doesn't understand what's important for someone buying this class of car.
