2001 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Mom & I bought "foci" & regret it.
Iíve replaced my ignition @30K mi;
my mom's was replaced twice @ the same
mileage. My check engine light is on &
dealership didnít fix the trouble; they
reset the light. A week later the
warranty ran out & the light came back.
I wonít take it to Ford due to
disappointing experiences @ 2 shops in
2 parts of FL. My mechanic said
this trouble could cost 150-500
depending on if itís a leaking hose or
a defective valve. My mom's is having
this problem (still under warranty)&
the dealership said it didnít cover
this & it would cost her 300+ to fix.
The fabric on the seat has worn all the
way through in places-IĎm 120lbs
What company would market such a lemon
& expect returning customers or
referrals? Iím 20, I'll never buy FORD
again. I don't recommend Focus. The
only good thing is that the reps @ Ford
Credit are helpful & understanding &
there are payment methods(on line/
The only way to improve this car is to
gut it and start over. If FORD wonít
offer quality products, they should at
least offer a warranty that covers
their poor "craft"manship.
