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

Review

Purchased a used Focus in early November 2002. By Thanksgiving, it was in the shop for a belt, plugs and wires. By Christmas it needed a new steering rack. (Can I just say no car with less than 150K miles needs a new STEERING RACK???) I fear what will happen next with this car. Also, the car has ABSOLUTELY NO VALUE once you drive it off the lot -- three long, long months of ownership has devalued the car by nearly $4000. Now I can't even trade the thing away. Gas mileage is nothing special - I expected more from a car this small. Overall, I should have kept my '95 Nissan Pick- up. They have about the same gas mileage, and I would still have 4WD.

Favorite Features

I don't have any. My advice?? Read Consumer Reports and act accordingly.

Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage - a car this small should get better than 23 mpg. Improve the overall reliability and maybe Consumer Reports will have something good to say about this car.
