By Ignition defect on


2003 Ford Focus LX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Ignition replaced 3 times. Exhaust pipe that connects to engine replaced twice. Mechanic said it will have to be replaced again and again because it is a known defect. Brakes replaced too many times. Now engine rattles. My mother has the same car. Same problems. It has been in fender benders twice and a guy driving a stolen truck ran in to the front end and no dents! The other cars had the damage. That is one great thing about the car. There is not a lot of room in the back seat.

Best Features

Seems to be safe when hit by other cars.

Worst Features

Ignitions, brakes, exhaust tube They might have already made the improvements in the newer models.
