Beautiful, but bad quality

2004 Ford Focus LX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


First week I have purchased it, the
fuel bump went bad and had to be
replaced (about $230, the car
dealership has replaced it). Two more
months and the alternator went bad
($120), so both the alternator and the
battery ($60) had to be replaced. On
top of it all, the wheel got stuck one
day and the whole key set ($200) had to
be replaced. My car has been towed
three times in the first 5 months that
I had it. Also, the a/c, when is turned
on, does take away the performance of
the engine... the car does not go as
fast as if the a/c was turned off.

Best Features

I like the design, in and out. The car is spacious, especially the trunk. The tires are really good.

Worst Features

Seats. Quality of engine.
