2000 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan


Review

I owned this vehicle for just under
four years and 85,000 miles. The
recalls were annoying and I stopped
getting them corrected, which actually
led to one problem. The tires wear out
quickly, as do the brakes. Ford did
replace all the brakes free of charge
after one year. I had the rear left
wheel bearing break at about 70K miles.
I think this was a recall issue. I had
several problems with a bad battery
cable causing the car not to start (or
die in traffic). I think the car
juiced batteries. I went through 3 in
four years. Other than
tires/brakes/wheel bearing, the only
other problem was a broken air hose
(about $125 repair).


Best Features

Large trunk, you feel high in the vehicle so you can see the road and surroundings pretty well.


Worst Features

Arm rests should be standard. The one I got didn't have one. The batteries are "reversed polarity" which makes it tricky to find the correct size at places like Wal-Mart.

Review

I have had several recalls on this car,
It continues to fall apart on me so I
am trading it in for a VW.

When im using the AC it leaks on the
inside of the car! I had that fixed 8
times and it is still not fixed!

I have also had key problems!

Review

8 recalls speak for themselves. Plus
new tires every 38,000 miles. Car only
gets 20 miles per gallon. With its size
that's terrible. I am expecting 2 more
recalls.


Best Features

It has a nice radio


Worst Features

Buy toyota

work done on my car.Its great and
affordable.
