2004 Ford Focus ZTS 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


I purchased a focus ZTS in 5/04 it has
been serviced 4 times once for a recall
on the heated seats & 3 times with a
fuel gauge problem their seems to be a
softwear problem our 1st problem
occured after filling the tank the
gauge stayed on empty the dealer said
ford told them to clear the computer
memory & put in a new code the 2nd time
we again filled the tank this time it
read 1/2 tank the dealer replaced the
sending unit the 3rd time the gauge
stayed on full after 150 miles then
after 200 miles the gauge read between
full & 3/4 when it should have read at
half tank because when we filled up it
took 8 gal with a 14 gal tank now they
say the float wasnt set properly on the
sending unit

Best Features

although we like the style & handleing were now so sure we want to keep a car that has been in for service 4 times in 2 months

Worst Features

perhaps ford should improve its quality and do something for its customers whom have experienced problems when we spoke with our dealer & expressed our concerns over the issue with reguards to trading it in I felt they didnt offer us any better deal or discounts
