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


Purchased a used Focus in early
November 2002. By Thanksgiving, it was
in the shop for a belt, plugs and
wires. By Christmas it needed a new
steering rack. (Can I just say no car
with less than 150K miles needs a new
STEERING RACK???) I fear what will
happen next with this car. Also, the
car has ABSOLUTELY NO VALUE once you
drive it off the lot -- three long,
long months of ownership has devalued
the car by nearly $4000. Now I can't
even trade the thing away. Gas mileage
is nothing special - I expected more
from a car this small. Overall, I
should have kept my '95 Nissan Pick-
up. They have about the same gas
mileage, and I would still have 4WD.

Best Features

I don't have any. My advice?? Read Consumer Reports and act accordingly.

Worst Features

Better gas mileage - a car this small should get better than 23 mpg. Improve the overall reliability and maybe Consumer Reports will have something good to say about this car.
