Great Car that worse than YUGO !
By ankhmaat on
2003 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Clutch gone at 33,000 Front Struts worn out at 65,000 Steering wheel fails to unlock at 45,000 Tinim chain skips and ruins engine at 98,000 3 radios changed under warranty, and never wored right Side mirrrs break off easily and host of little problems. I used to own YUGO and things that lasted forever on YUGO break on FORD FOUCS, incredible ! Coolant tank leaks at 82,500 CHeck engine light on more than 20 times, Radiator and fan and air flow sensor all failed when still under warranty. Well mine was made in MEXICO !
Was fun to drive before things started to break down
The timing chain is the worst feature, and it is not accessible when engine in in the car. To change clutch was over $2,000 or more than Auto costs extra.
