2004 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Purchased this car in 2004 Brand new off the lot in May of 2004. In Sept. of 2004 I had a work injury that required alot of surgeries, so I did not get to drive the car that much.
To date it has barely 39,000 miles on it. It is the biggest peice of junk ever made!!!!!!! I will NEVER buy from Ford ever again. I had to spend 4,500$ at 28,000 miles for a new transmission, I have had to replaced the ignition because the damn thing locked up every 5 minutes, I have to replace the tires....and they couldn't be ordinary, they had to be some special kind of tire that cost 3 times more and complete brakes, all on a car with less then 40,000 miles. I have put almost 7500 into this car, it is horrible

Best Features

The cd player, electric everything and AC

Worst Features

The ignition switches-you KNOW they lock by themselves and yet you continue to ignore 1,000's of complaints The hatch could go up easier, its heavy You could have put standard tires on the car instead of special size The brakes began to squeal at 1,500 miles..Ford told me "All Focus's do that"
