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


Bought factory certified at 13500. 1 wk later safety recall on engine cable. At 30000 the front brakes and rotors wore thru. My previous car went 150000 on rotors and brakes. I know how to drive and take care of a car. Had them replaced with heavy duty rotors. Even new brakes squeal like a pig. Part of the appeal, huh? During ice and snow the steering wheel will whip out of your hands when turning a curve. The next safety recall, the fuel pump. Causes surges, lags and hey, no power while going 50 mph. They fixed for free. The CD player has now died. After a fuel injection cleaning and tune up I do get 42 on highway, 28 in city, less with A/C.

Best Features

First car with cruise control, I like it and tilt column.

Worst Features

A big trunk should have a big opening so you can fit big things in. Make driver armrest longer. Better lumbar support. Need lock on glove compartment. Back seats should fold down. Cup holders too close to dash. Place headlights higher for better light.
