2000 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan


The Focus is a piece of JUNK! Car has
been into dealership 19 times 15 of
then have been recalls or warranty
purposes. Have had 9 recalls already!
Car has 59,140km on it. Rear axle
assembly has been done, both front
stablizer links replaced, brake
calipers froze, car shook at high
speeds. Springs were not properly in
control arms, caused clunk. Clutch
spring done twice. Car stalls
occasionally, still not fixed. Car
RPM's fluctuate when stopped causing
car to shake at stops. Two wheel covers
replaced, wiper arms had to be
tightened. Rear wheel bearings and
seals replaced. The list goes on and
on. Stay away from the focus it is
nothing but hassles.

Best Features

-40-60 rear split seat -pen holder -decent amount of interior room -very little road noise

Worst Features

Interior light, you can't see anything in the back seat, very annoying. Trunk light not bright enough. The arm rest in the front should come standard on the car, the front seat sits too low to see in the rear view mirror properly
