2006 Focus SES Wagon Automatic - Bought new, now 5 years old
By jmiller38 on
Vehicle
2006 Ford Focus ZXW SES 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review
The first 2 years gave me very satisfactory service, and then things went from good to not so good. Had to have a new transmission around 34000 miles (under warranty). Headlights needed replacing at 3 years. Trim clips are lousy. Starter battery died; needed new fuel line and now the alternator went out ($700). Bumper crumples and quite costly to repair. Plastic gears for the arm rest break easily. Costs $500 to replace. Have had all my service done on schedule by Ford and do get good mileage. Bought for safety considerations. My car has had more problems than my friend's 2006 Focus hatchback. I'm wondering when the brakes and/or exhaust will go. Considered contacting Ford directly.
Favorite Features
Mileage is good. Appearance is nice. Paint has held up beautifully.
Suggested Improvements
Too much plastic in high stress areas. Too many electrical issues. What's with the automatic transmission dying so soon?

Sounds Like you treat cars rough. You got 3yrs on a head light? So whats the problem. Don't expect a Hot rod from a budget car.
