2003 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

In the shop twice for transmission problems before 12,000 miles. Took 1/4 tank of gas and 2 hours to go 23 miles up hills recently while traveling on vacation.Thought the transmission was going to fall out. Back again last week for same transmission problem that was "repaired" 18,000 miles ago, only had to pay $100 deductible even though it is under full warranty. Afraid to drive up a hill because I am out of cash and cannot afford another $100 should it have to go back in the shop. I will never again have a Ford product and this one will be gone as soon as I make the last payment. Hello Toyota.

Favorite Features

Only 24 more payments and then it will be outta here. (Should it last that long!)

Suggested Improvements

I spoke with a lot of people with problems with the Focus. Every used car lot has at least 2 for resale. Recall them all and give people their money back or a fair even trade. And how can you charge a "deductible" on a warranty? Nope, never again will I purchase a Ford product.
