This is a LEMON

2003 Ford Focus ZTS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review
This vehicle performed superbly right up until the 40,000 mile mark. First of all, the Pirelli tires are horrible and will need to be replaced between 35-40k. Secondly, I had to replace the brakes and rotors because they were shot. Third, I had to replace a transmission part that caused my engine to skip (thankfully covered by the extended warranty). Lastly, and most important, the engine stalls in the middle of traffic with no warning. I have taken it to the dealer but they can't figure out what is wrong. I used to think "buy American" but in the case of cars, IT'S NOT WORTH MY LIFE or yours either! Do yourself a favor and STAY CLEAR of this one!
Favorite Features
The exterior styling gives the car a upper-scale appearance. However, remember the old saying that you can't judge a book by its cover!
Suggested Improvements
Ford: Why don't you actually MAKE a car that is as good as you claim! You need to recall this model to fix what you have done (regarding engine stalls). Also, "thumbs down" to Consumer Reports magazine for giving this car a high rating. If they only knew.
