Tire Problems Persest
By Riverrat on


2008 Ford Focus SES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Bought new in May 2008--gets great mileage, about 36-38 on the highway but has a serious tire problem, we replaced tires at 15,600(cost nearly $500), also had the front end relined, talked to service manager at our Ford dealer and he told us that we were about the tenth person to come to him with the same problem--he was unable to do anything under warranty, even the reline job wasn't covered now have 31,000 miles on it and tires are shot--daughter has a 2003 Focus and they have to replace tires yearly(wish she had told me about it before we bought the new one)

Best Features

Dashboard night lights color

Worst Features

needs outside temperature gauge, need to redo heater system so that driver's feet don't freeze while the passenger roasts, CD player overheats and skips(problem that a lot of previous Fords have(no it's not the CD scratched or like, you pop out the CD and it is extremely hot)
