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
