2001 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I bought my Focus new. I am also very good with the maintenance. Nothing but problems from the start. Rotors and brakes were a problem from the manufacturer. Then came sensor troubles. Too many recalls. Next was the 4 times I had to have the stereo replaced due to a battery that was going bad..it took 4 tries to figure that out? Then went the air compressor at 36,000 miles only to follow 2 months later with the evaporator core in the air conditioning. ($1,000.00 each!) Next went the faulty alarm system. Lastly, if you turn the radio up loud enough, you can't hear the horrible vibrations! The worst part is the fact that the car has NO value!! Going shopping for a Honda now!

Best Features

Nice amenities, when everything works. Great power options. 6 disc in dash CD changer, 16" tires and aluminum rims., sporty looking.

Worst Features

Build a better car that has lasting parts in it, and a great goal would be a car that will retain some value!
