2000 Ford Focus LX 4dr Sedan


I had this car given to me by my dad and he said it was a good car. Well it might have been a good car when he had it but it seemed that from the time I took hold of the keys everything fell apart. First 100 miles struts break $600. 300 miles power steering pump $300. 500 miles wheel bearing $500. 1000 miles Transmission slips estimated $2000. luckily someone hit me and totaled it (no one was hurt) it always started rough. for your own sake don't buy it. if you do and keep it driving for a year you will put more repairs into it than it's worth. i bought a Grand Prix GT with the money much happier with it. more power + less repairs = happier customer

Best Features

gas mileage good stock stereo ok rear leg room for a small sedan trunk size outside looks fun to drive (when you can drive it)

I own this car since past five years (bought it in used condition @ 150,000 KM) & now its odometer reads 227,000Km. This car has really eaten away my salary. I live in the middle east. Probably it was not designed for such countries like ME. It was gives problem at least once in a month. I got its timing belt replaced, multiple times AC has been fixed. Transmission system was repaired last month. Now it keeps switching off when driven above 50KMPH. I would never suggest anyone to buy this car specially in ME.
