Sad, but the Focus really soured me on all Fords. What hasn't gone wrong on this car? Despite the recalls just since I've had it, the $2400 transmission put in at 70K, the extra $1000 it will take for MORE O2 sensors, fuel gauge sensor, etc. and the additional $1,000 I've put in since I've had it (if you add it all up, it's about what the trade in is worth), I've had it with this car. Once one thing goes, everything goes.
Exterior styling, roominess on the inside, and great gas mileage!
More reliability! You buy a cheap car because you don't have the money to keep shelling out on repairs. My Chevy Cavalier (voted worst by most owners) had one repair in 10 years. Quite a comparison!
