2002 Ford Focus SE 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

Review

I bought this car used a year ago. I liked the look of the car, the format, and I have heard good things about it from Euro owners. After owning it for a year I have discovered cosmetic problems and handling problems, as well as build problems. The carpeting doesn't match the contour of the body so it is pulling away from the trim, and actually tearing. The rear suspension is dangerous, skipping across bumps instead of absorbing them. There are lots of rattles caused by poorly fit plastics. The transmission is okay, but could shift more smoothly - it seems to be hunting for the right gear sometimes, with reluctance to downshift (you have to 'punch' the pedal)

Favorite Features

The appearance and carrying capacity.

Suggested Improvements

Better rear shocks. More room for the rear seats. Head rests for the rear. Better transmission. I'm concerned about what I've heard/read about limited tire availability due to odd size, making tires
