2007 Ford Focus ZX4 S 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I bought this car new in the fall of 2006.
There are design flaws in the low profile tires, resulting in blow outs and bent rims in Ohio winters.
The car suffers excessive road noise.
It also is built with inferior Chinese metal.
The stabilizer bars were recently repaired, and all of the undercarriage heat shields were replaced.
Total cost?
The heat shields should have been recalled, as almost every Ford owner I know from this year to now has the same issues with the heat shields.
They are made of cheap, inferior Chinese steel.

Best Features


Worst Features

Go to a thicker tire. Reduce road noise. Use American steel in manufacturing process, or at least, steel that is more durable. I would recall all these vehicles for their heat shield issues.
