2009 Ford Focus SEL 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Bought this car with 15k miles on it. Its been one problem after another. It has left us high and dry at least 4 different times where the car wouldnt start at all. 2 times is was due to the fuel pump. The fuel pump went once last Christmas day and we had to stay at a hotel out of town overnight. Then the computer on the car went out not too long ago. Everything was covered by warranty, but what a pain . Then, just yesterday, the car would start but wouldnt shift out of park at the grocery store. Shifter was somehow locked up! It is currently at the dealer and they have no clue why that happened. I will never buy another Ford car. tires wear down very fast also. on 2nd set at 5ok miles sucks

Best Features

We like the SYNC system and the heated seats, but none of this matters when the car is broke down and doesnt run.

Worst Features

Get rid of the model . that would be the best improvement that Ford could make.
