Failing Ford Focus
By tootnguyen on
2003 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
The focus has proven rather disappointing to own. Mechanical problems and failing interior parts quickly became apparent. The A/C and transmission failed at 4200 miles. Discovery of numerous recalls on a vehicle relatively new to the market is disconcerning. This model is setting automotive records for the most recalls since it's intro. The Ford dealers were rude and overworked fixing other focus recalls. More Focus models were in their garage than on the dealer's lot. Interestingly, The true test of a the build quality is how a car holds up after the warranty expires even if you don't plan to hang on to a car that long.
Suggested Improvements
The build quality of Toyota, Nissan and Honda are generally better than Ford Focus, Taurus, and Econoline Van that I have owned in the past. I recommend better quality control of the air conditioning and transmission in all of the Fords. These were always the first to go.
