2001 Ford Focus Ghia 1.6
Good car to drive, almost all things to all people
Multi Disc CD player failed however this was replaced under warranty.
Engine died a couple of times when approaching a roundabout. The ECU was reprogrammed at the first service and has not happened since.
Trim over pollen filter (lower edge of windscreen n/s) distorted and let water into the passenger compartment. This was replaced at the second service at my cost, however after the third sevrice the replacement trim is distorted, and will require replacement yet again.
Generally a very good car which is good to drive, I find it comfortable with reasonable space.
The car has been let down by the poor performance/fitting of the trim panel that covers the pollen filter, once this panel is removed it appears even Fords own servicing staff cannot get it to correctly seal when it is refitted.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
