Although the Focus is a fun drive
(even the wagon), the image of poor
quality is well deserved. At less
than 1 year old (15000 miles), the
paint has started to flake away on the
plastic bumper cover and a short in
the wiring left us without any
external lights except headlights.
Basic servicing is horrible given that
the oil filter is on the back side of
the engine and impossible to remove
without oil dripping on the CV boot,
down frame members and all over the
Move the oil filter to the front side
of the engine.
