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


The first two years I had the car it worked great. I had no problems with it. Then it started having problems. First, the radio went out. Then I began to have brake problems. Then my water pump and related components began to develop holes. Now the brake pads have worn down and the alternator has just about gone out. In the last 2 years, my car has been in the shop 5-6 times. Additionally, I used to get really good gas mileage. Now, it's below average and my driving habits have not changed (perhaps due to the alternator). I've had other cars that maybe went to the shop once in their whole lifetime.
