Not for the long haul
By Nrmltowngrrrl on


2000 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback


This was my first car ever, and it will
be my last Ford. Looks cute and is fun
to drive, but quality is poor. Stuff
keeps breaking: clutch master cylinder
(at 20K), ignition switch (stranded at
40K; not fun), brakes (at 45K), cd
player/radio cuts off for no reason
(even after being sent for fixing),
leaky radiator (66K), wiper speed is
never right, makes weird crunching noise
over speed bumps, brakes always squeaky!
Plus, dealership service is not helpful.
Takes forever to get recalls fixed,
sometimes they don't even order the
parts. I can't wait to get rid of this
thing and would not recommend the Ford
Focus to anyone.

Best Features

Looks sharp and handles well, fuel economy is a plus.

Worst Features

Higher quality craftsmanship, please! Why can't Ford make cars like they used to?
