2003 Ford Focus ZTW 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

Review

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.

Worst Features

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.
