Throw away car
By sherman on
2001 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Bad motor problems, Too mini plastic parts on motor. Pullies, stat. housing. radiator. Electrical problems, burned up factory installed wiring harness, alt. went out and you cannot replace it in the drive way, it needs a lift to remove from the bottom. Plastick core support? power window motor went bad. Rear view mirrors will brake off if bumped in any direction. Transponder key broke in half. Upper timing belt cover cracked and making noise. I have spent nearly 2000.00 fixing a car I bought for 3000.00. KEEP away from this car.. Looks good, very bad quality. It will suck you dry 100 bucks at a time.
The car looks real nice
No way to improve this car, If it has less than 25000 miles drive it until something brakes, and sale it. If you think this is an exaggeration Just search the net on trouble with this car, you will find a ton of stuff.
