2001 Ford Focus SE 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

Review

This car was a comfortable, responsive, and very nice car up until 2006 when at 57,000 miles the fuel system began to cause it to stall intermittently. Since then, with plenty of $$ in repairs to the fuel system and rentals, it still stalls out anywhere - anytime - any speed - very dangerous. Now Ford is telling me that it needs a $1200 wiring harness, which I cannot afford to do after all the rental and repair expenses. The charge for diagnosing this: $181.00. In 2001, I had an immediate repair under warranty for something that caused a tsunami in the front passenger floor. Now it's moldy throughout. A spring broke last year, fixed under a warranty "silent" recall. Steer clear of this car.

Best Features

Comfortable for my back on long trips, responsive, excellent gas mileage until fuel system problems occurred, roomy cargo area, nice looking.

Worst Features

Better all-over quality control.
