2007 Ford Focus ZX3 SE 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I bought my ZX3 brand new in May, '07. Loved it. Great on gas and heavy power for its engine size and rating. I could smoke many Cobalts and others in its class. Don't know about a Dodge Neon or Cobalt SS. Everything was awesome until about 7 months into ownership when it developed problems with the fuel system. When you'd fill up with gas it wouldn't want to crank. It was at the dealership I know of 8 times for this issue from the beginning of '08 to July '09 and the problem has recently recurred. I used to be a very big Ford fan recommending them to everybody. This ownership experience with this car and this dealership has put an end to that.
Sound sys. CD plyr. interior design. Great Engine and performance.
Better BUILD QUALITY and Ford's much needed capability to resolve issues with their products.
