2001 Ford Focus Street 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Another gremlin in the electrical system is blowing the resistor that controls the A/C & blower. Other gremlins have been blowing out tail lamp bulbs every 3-5 months. The dealers are useless. The car is on its 3rd set of brake pads & rotors in the front. The car arrived with the power lock controls not plugged in. The wheel bearings have been replaced. The air bypass control valve has been replaced. The dealer's collision center took a month & many return trips to fix minor rear end damage. The dealer closed the hood with the prop up & tried to return the car the corner of the hood sticking up ... other minor problems. Gee, only 40 months old & 57k miles. Better buy that Honda or Toyota soon.

Best Features

Love the handling, ergonomics and styling, wish it was more reliable.

Worst Features

Wrecking ball dropped from 10 storys, Ford buying the car back so I can purchase a Honda or Toyota.
