2001 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I did my research and felt I was getting a great car. Been in the shop about seven times since new for various problems - numerous rumbles, rattles and squeaks from front and rear, hesitation/stalling at 35-50 mph, broken rear seat, peeling tint, poor mileage, ... These defects have yet to be completely corrected - defective car or incompetent technicians?
I wanted to like this car.
My last of many Fords.
