Saved My Life, Twice

Vehicle

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

Review

This car has saved my life two times. The first time, I was in a hit and run accident with a semi-truck the same year I purchased the car. The second time was two weeks ago, and the man who ran into me totaled my car. Luckily, my unborn child and I walked away unharmed (mild chemical burn on hand from airbag). In the beginning the car was fantastic but towards the end (103,000 mi) the CD player failed, I had to get my fuel pump replaced (recall), and the electrical system kept failing. I started pouring lots of $$$ into it. I think of this as a blessing that my car is totaled now. It was a good first car, but now I am moving on to something better.

Favorite Features

Gas Mileage+++, Tight Steering, Safety+++, Interior Room

Suggested Improvements

The electrical system is a huge failure. There are too many recalled parts, and those recalls do not cover even 1/2 of the problems. You can find a better car for the money.
