Won't buy a Ford again
By Dissatisfied Owner on
2003 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Bought my car new and was fine until after I passed the "Lemon Law" limit. I only have 61000 miles on my car. I've had nothing but problems with my car! In the shop constantly. Transmission went out, had radio replaced 6 times, now have an after market radio paid for by Ford, alternator and cellunoid went out, blower motor went out, mold in my A/C x 2 and getting poorer gas mileage. It makes the weirdest noises that my local dealer can't always find the cure for. Never did get the gas mileage it claimed to get. I purchased the extended warranty and was so glad I did! I'd be in the "Poor House" now if I hadn't.
It is rather fun to drive, otherwise.
Better quality control. Engineers from Detroit were supposed to have checked out my radio issue and couldn't find a problem
