Be careful when buying a Focus
By Irriserv on
2008 Ford Focus SE 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Overall the Ford Focus is a nice fun to drive small car with nice looks and great MPG. The build quality seem ok however there are design problems and areas that Ford cut corners to save money that you will pay for. One of the most noticeable areas is they left off the spare tire. So if you get a flat reach into your wallet and expect to pay for a tow. The other areas that we have found is that the defective door latch that will keep you from getting in the car is still a problem since the first focus. Also there is no seal on the break cable so it will sound like an old buggy if you drive on dirt roads. Nice car but I wish I bought a Toyota instead. I would have saved hassle.
Roomy for a small car Good MPG
Door latch problem. Squeaks too much if you drive on dirt roads No Spare Tire Poor dealer service and Ford Customer Service.
