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

Review

This was one of the first cars I had, and it was very fun. The SOHC I-4 was very stout but I would have liked to have a ZETEC instead. There are a few drawbacks to my car. The factory stereo was good, but it had problems reading CDs so I had to get an aftermarket one. I had the car from 74k to 78k and around 77k, I had some issues with the idle. It would die on me at idle. Probably had bad fuel. The alternator couldn't handle the extra power of a 300 watt amp and a 50 watt CD stereo. Not enough amps. Overall my Focus was a great car and extremely fun to drive, but it lacked power in the top of the RPMs. That would have come in handy at the drag strip.

Favorite Features

Stock speakers. Steering wheel. E-brake

Suggested Improvements

High amp alternator. Brake rotors that won't kill my pads. Exhaust manifold leak.
