2002 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I bought this car in 2002. I drive it to a nd from work, less than 10,000 miles a year.
The car is the worst car that I had.
Water occasionally leaks into the cabin, which smells of mildew.
Shocks needed to be changed (front) at around 60,000 miles.
Brakes re-done around 75,000 miles, first the hydraulics of one of the drums then the main pump.
Car is not very stable and tends to skid around unless you use premium tires.
Latch in the rear hood kind of broken after 20,000 miles.
Disks of front brakes needed to be changed after 50,000 miles.
