Fun little car
By Randle on


2000 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan


Ford built a fun little car. Only
problem after 36,000 miles is the
annoying transmission squeal driving at
speeds between 63 and 69 miles per
hour. Dealer says this is a design flaw
and completely unfixable. Which leaves
me driving either over or under the
speed limit on my daily freeway commute
to work. This squeal could be a
contributing factor in road rage.

Best Features

Roomy interior including ample leg room for backseat passengers. Comfortable seats with plenty of back support. Great trunk design, very large.

Worst Features

Find some way to fix the squeal in the transmission. Add soundproofing to reduce road noise.
