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

Review

Here I have a 2003 Ford Focus wagon with 52K miles. Decided to go on road trip; had to be towed twice. Started smoking, Ford dealer said it was battery. Then it died again; this time alternator replaced. Made it home and was told the a/c compressor is going. Real nice at this low mileage. In repair shop at least 7 times since I bought it. All about the brakes and rotors. No one could fix them right, still squeaked loudly. Final answer from mechanic that all Ford Focus's do this. Give me a break. I went to brake specialist and they fixed it. Doors sound like tin. Can't open left side passenger door. Just a piece of junk. The money I've spent on this car I could have had a wonderful vacation.

Best Features

Comfort of seats.

Worst Features

Do something about brakes, doors, continuous problems. Ford needs to hire EXPERIENCED MECHANICS! I've gone to Ford dealerships in NY, Georgia and TN and they all know nothing.
