1999 Ford Focus LX 5dr Hatchback 1.8 petrol from UK and Ireland
Only an occasional opening of the rear hatch at speed due to a faulty interior release switch; pain in the neck! 5000m so far so it's early days yet.
Generally a fairly good car but not as good as I expected. It consumes more fuel and is much noisier than I thought it would be especially in respect of road/tyre noise. The 1800 Mondeo is MUCH better.
CD player is excellent.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
