Vehicle2001 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewBought factory certified at 13500. 1 wk
later safety recall on engine
cable. At 30000 the front brakes and
rotors wore thru. My previous car went
150000 on rotors and brakes. I know how
to drive and take care of a car. Had
them replaced with heavy duty rotors.
Even new brakes squeal like a pig. Part
of the appeal, huh? During ice and snow
the steering wheel will whip out of
your hands when turning a curve. The
next safety recall, the fuel pump.
Causes surges, lags and hey, no power
while going 50 mph. They fixed for
free. The CD player has now died. After
a fuel injection cleaning and tune up I
do get 42 on highway, 28 in city, less
Best FeaturesFirst car with cruise control, I like it and tilt column.
Worst FeaturesA big trunk should have a big opening so you can fit big things in. Make driver armrest longer. Better lumbar support. Need lock on glove compartment. Back seats should fold down. Cup holders too close to dash. Place headlights higher for better light.
