My Ford Focus
By Europop2500 on
2003 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Bought it w/ about 87k on it. 1st thing to replace it was the radio, couldn't read very well w/ the lines through it. Trunk latch doesn't work properly. To close the trunk I have to pull the safety lever in the trunk. It had fairly new tires on it when I bought it, they are already bald 7k miles later. A dome light towards the rear seats would be Nice, @night I cant see a thing back there. I get about 22 mpg all town. It would be Nice to put the rear seats down from the car, not just the trunk. The ignition cyl. Went out, Ford charged $270! Rip off. Only the drivers door has a keyhole and when its colder than 32 degrees the keyhole freezes and u cant get the key in, or turn it. I've tried many options
zippy, fun to drive, decent trunk space, gets 31mpg on hwy.
Fix the trunk latch, radio, put a light towards the rear seats, tires don't need to wear out that quick. Put in a ignition cylinder that works, put a keyhole on passengers door and design key hole so water wont freeze in it. I've tried different lubes, penetrators, and lock deicers w/ no real solution
