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


My Focus seems to be the opposite of the usual. I have had quite a few problems with it in the first 36k miles, but after that no problems at all. The things that failed were: - hood was repainted because someone at the dealership dented it, - dash was replaced because of weird squeaks in hot weather, - alternator failed and was replaced, - rear wheel bearing seized and was replaced, - engine computer was reprogrammed - engine hesitated in the 2k-3k rpm range. But I had no problems after 36k miles. I do all the maintenance on the car. Stock tires lasted about 32k miles, and front brake pads lasted about 35k miles.

Best Features

Good suspension and handling. Good looks.

Worst Features

Better quality of the dealerships. For example, when the rear wheel bearing was replaced they messed up the brakes (left a piece of plastic in the brake). As result, the brake seized few months later while I was driving
