Would Not Do It Again
By Robert on


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


Nothing but problems with this car since I purchased it new in 2002. General frame problems at first - the front passenger floor leaked excessively, had to be repaired.Twice it has overheated, needed temperature gauge replaced, and of course the entire cooling system needed flushed. Within the past few years I've had approximately $2,000 in repairs (including problem above, as well as transmission problems, motor coil problems, all in addition to regular routine maintenance-tune ups, oil changes). Mostly the car has been used to drive to/from work, and around town, very few long trips. Now-138,000 miles,and it's basically dead (unless I fork out another $2k in repairs). Fed up!

Best Features

Comfortable, good mileage, large trunk.

Worst Features

Build a better car. My escort before this last over 150,000 miles and counting, never had a problem.
