Zippy, Fun But Extremely Frustrating
By KCM on


2000 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan


Loved car when bought. Still like it,
but tired of quirky surprises! Had a
cracked AC line 6 months after
purchase. It was at dlrshp 3 mths
waiting for for the part to come in.
Many recalls. Most recent on fuel pump.
Car can't be started to move just
couple of feet in driveway or critical
valve sticks and car won't restart. Dlr
says drive around block to avoid
problem. Prblm with wires in steering
column caused exterior light failure on
2 diff. occasions. Brakes(rotors too)
had to be replaced. Crz cntrl would not
remain engaged; had to be repaired.
Ignition swtch went bad, key would not
go into the ignition. Many rpr bills
while still making car pymts!

Best Features

Acceleration, sharp steering, good stereo, good trunk space, roomy, reasonable gas mileage.

Worst Features

Install parts and provide workmanship as if Ford was going to pay for any repairs that arise. The consumer is paying for sloppy manufacturing.
