Out of Focus

Vehicle2001 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewThis car was a comfortable, responsive, and very nice car up until 2006 when at 57,000 miles the fuel system began to cause it to stall intermittently. Since then, with plenty of $$ in repairs to the fuel system and rentals, it still stalls out anywhere - anytime - any speed - very dangerous. Now Ford is telling me that it needs a $1200 wiring harness, which I cannot afford to do after all the rental and repair expenses. The charge for diagnosing this: $181.00. In 2001, I had an immediate repair under warranty for something that caused a tsunami in the front passenger floor. Now it's moldy throughout. A spring broke last year, fixed under a warranty "silent" recall. Steer clear of this car.
Best FeaturesComfortable for my back on long trips, responsive, excellent gas mileage until fuel system problems occurred, roomy cargo area, nice looking.
Worst FeaturesBetter all-over quality control.
