Terrible Brakes
By T. Egan on


2003 Ford Focus SE 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


I bought this car from dealership with 17,000 miles (a previous rental) and had to bring back to dealership several times. Back brakes continuously squealing. After 4th time, still noisy as ever. Finally told, well that's just how the brakes are on the Focus. The doors are very hard to open. I've had this car more in the shop than any other vehicle I've ever owned. Very hard to squeeze your hand down on side of seats to get to levers and I have very small hands.

Best Features

Style of wagon.

Worst Features

Brakes, brakes, brakes! Till this day they are still screeching away. Everyone looks at me when I come to stop or go down a hill.
