Not entirely happy

2001 Ford Focus LX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
It has basically been a decent vehicle, but I've already had to replace the rack and pinion and the cv joints. Not good for a car that new. It's not like I go off roading in it. I'm pretty sure I won't buy another Ford. The Focus was my first and will be my last Ford. It does get good mileage for gas and runs well. I'm just not impressed with it. Not a good car for taller men. Almost impossible to fit a baby car seat in the back. The seats aren't comfortable either. They slump you forward.
I do think it's a cute car. It's great for shorter people. Good stereo sound for factory stereo.
