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


The only reason we bought this car was because it was 0% interest. There have been many parts replaced because the metal used was cheap. It's been in the shop every year since we've had it. I am not happy with this car. The extended warranty only covered 1 part any time we've had problems. The warranty seemed to do nothing for us. The ignition and fuel are the biggest problems. It's loud from the noise outside especially on highways. There isn't much leg room in the back seats. The stereo system is TERRIBLE. We replaced our ignition and key 3 times! Loud muffler. This is a noisy, break down car. I'd suggest against getting one. Ford never helped me at all with any problems.

Best Features

Gets great gas mileage. It's compact, easy to park in tight spaces. There's a lot of trunk space.

Worst Features

Better stereo system. Make it not as noisy when you drive on highways. Use better metal on the parts, especially the ignition and key. More parts covered under warranty. Make the muffler quieter.
