Nice Car with some problems
By L.A. Driver on


2000 Ford Focus ZTS 4dr Sedan


I'm a first-time buyer and I purchased this car used. Within the 1st month, water kept fogging up the headlights (dealer wanted to charge me $300). I've had to replace the brakes twice in 2 years, and the brake pedal squeaks (loudly), had two recalls, and it rattles, and it produces too much brake dust. The interior side panel broke already and the latch on the passenger seat broke so you can't adjust seating anymore. While some of these problems can be rather annoying, I still love the car. I broke the family tradition of buying only Japanese cars when I got this one.

Best Features

Stereo is great, huge trunk space, alloy wheels are great (newer models come with hub caps now).

Worst Features

IMPROVE brake system, better lumbar support for driver seat, more leg space for back seat passengers, and perhaps add a sunroof.
