A fun to drive hunk of GARBAGE?!?!
By David in Oregon on


2000 Ford Focus ZTS 4dr Sedan


At 24 months and 12000 miles the
transmission came apart inside, Ford
kept it 3 weeks.
Four months later, same thing, dealer
kept it for 3 weeks. Interior trim
has come loose, one seat belt would no
longer latch, another seat belt could
no longer be pulled out. Dealer
repairs are iffy at best, replaced ALL
the seatbelts with the WRONG COLOR
(black belts, grey interior? BARF!)
The recalls did not bother me, its a
new design, but the multitude of other
problems anger us both. With only 7
months left on the factory warantee,
we are thinking of getting rid of this
