WORST Car I EVER owned. by Blu-ray on 03/02/2012. Trim: 2003 Ford Focus ZTS, Owned 9 years.
Pros: I loved the styling and the look.
Cons: Unreliable, always in the shop. Traded it in with 73K. 9,200.00 worth of repairs from the end of the 36K warranty until trading it in on another car! WORST CAR I HAVE EVER EVER OWNED. Car ate through tires. I had to buy new tires ever 20K on this car. Ford could do nothing about it.
Overall review: I use to buy Fords because I've always bought Fords. After this Ford I will avoid them. This car left a very bad taste in my mouth and a big hole in my pocket. It was always going into the shop for one thing or another. Total A/C replacement before 45K miles, Manifold, Trunk release, power windows, stereo, radiator, every sensor on the vehicle at least twice, water pump, alternator (twice, both from Ford), starter, ignition coils, battery cable that shorted out, headlights every so many miles, valve seals, and Transmission was the last thing and that's when I traded. NEVER AGAIN WILL I BUY A FORD! I bought this car for just under 20K. With interest on the loan and the 9,200 in repairs I should have gone for a pricier Camry or other car. Forget this car. DO NOT BUY EVER! Everytime I turned around it was in the shop for repairs because something was wrong with it. And no I didn't race, drive erratically, or drive the car roughly. I'm a very safe, cautious, and sane driver.
