2000 Ford Focus SE 4dr Wagon


Review

AFTER DRIVING MY CAR FOR SIX MONTHS I
AM VERY DISPLEASED. UNDER ACCELERATION
THERE IS A BAD SULFUR SMELL THAT
NEITHER THE DEALER OR FORD CAN EXPLAIN.
BECAUSE THE DIAGNOSTIC MACHINES SAY THE
CAR IS PERFORMING PROPER THEY WON'T DO
ANYTHING TO FIX THE PROBLEMS.


Worst Features

MORE LEG ROOM FOR THE REAR SEAT PASSENGERS. DO SOME MAJOR TESTING WITH THE WAGON UP HILLS AND FIX THE OVER HEATING CAT. CON. PROBLEMS TO FIX THE SMELL

Review

My wife loved the car for about a year
and a half. Until all the problems.
We ruined the rotors at about 15k
miles. I guess that is my fault for
not checking the brakes, but I have
never had a car that ran through
breaks before 30k. Since that we have
had well over $2000 in the car in
three years. It has left my wife
stranded twice(which sealed the deal).
Currently, it is still not running.
It's not starting
sometimes. We will see how much this
one costs.
I have a total of 60k mi. Mostly
highway. Since replacing brakepads,
they have lasted well over 40k mi.
Many of the problems that I have had,
are also happening on my father's
Winstar.


Best Features

It does have good power for the class. I think a good turning radius. Is fun to drive for its class.


Worst Features

Stop selling it

Review

I bought this car new. In the 3 years
(27,500 mls) I've had it, it's been
more trouble than my 10 yr old Honda
(+200,000 mls). Things that should work
for a certain amount of time don't. The
latest is the rear power window. The
mechanism failed and now needs to be
replace. This is just 3 weeks AFTER
the wrnty expired. I've also had to
bring it back for recalls - wipers and
backseat latch. The stereo was replace
too.
On the other hand it is fun to drive.
I love all the cargo room with the back
seat down. It's easy to manuever, and
it has some zip to it. It's cute and
good back seat leg room.
Won't buy another, but remember you get
what you pay for.


Best Features

The flat surface when you lay the back seat down.


Worst Features

Use quality parts when manuafacturing a car!

person who was not watching the road.
Impact was apprx 40mph difference.
The passenger compartment held up great,
and with no broken glass at all. The
doors do open now but wont close well.
