Issues with door latches, and truck latch.

2008 Ford Focus S 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Bought a 2008 Focus Automatic(why doesn't Edmunds have the automatic as option for review?) brand new. First winter the passenger side door lock froze. 6months into ownership of it the carpet came undone from under plastic door trim on both sides of car. Same issue with "09" too. 2 years in the trunk door latch is blown. We had to rig it so can open from pulling a rope threaded though the fold down back seat. Asked it to be repaired when had it in for service and idiots at shop failed to do anything to it. Haven't taken it back. 5yrs old now and back door on passenger side will not latch. Going to have to have it repaired when have the money. Issues with alignment on it and the 2009 too.

Best Features

Fav features of 08 Gas mileage.

Worst Features

Suggest that they stop being so cheap with the carpets. Having two focus have same issues with carpets coming undone it can't be a fluke. Have heard others have same issue too.
