2001 Ford Focus LX Estate 1.4 petrol
Good, honest, and reliable, without setting the world on fire
Ignition coil went at around 50000 miles. Apparently it is a common fault.
Radio is giving trouble. Not sure if it's the radio unit itself or the antenna.
This 1.4 petrol estate is a very practical and reliable car. Loads of space when the back seats are let down. Reasonably economical and very reliable.
This model a bit bare on the extras however. No air con. and no CD player. Why car makers think people nowadays need a cassette player instead of a CD player is beyond me.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
