2000 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan


Loved car when bought. Still like it, but tired of quirky surprises! Had a cracked AC line 6 months after purchase. It was at dlrshp 3 mths waiting for for the part to come in. Many recalls. Most recent on fuel pump. Car can't be started to move just couple of feet in driveway or critical valve sticks and car won't restart. Dlr says drive around block to avoid problem. Prblm with wires in steering column caused exterior light failure on 2 diff. occasions. Brakes(rotors too) had to be replaced. Crz cntrl would not remain engaged; had to be repaired. Ignition swtch went bad, key would not go into the ignition. Many rpr bills while still making car pymts!

Best Features

Acceleration, sharp steering, good stereo, good trunk space, roomy, reasonable gas mileage.

Worst Features

Install parts and provide workmanship as if Ford was going to pay for any repairs that arise. The consumer is paying for sloppy manufacturing.
