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