2000 Ford Focus ZTS from North America
Good car for the price
Multiple recalls, but they are expected from a new model car.
Brakes needed to be totally re-done @ 15,000 miles. Not covered by warranty as a "wear" item. Not pleased.
All around a good car, but the brakes issue really bothers me. I would like to know if others have had the same problem.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

My brakes also went bad @ 20,000. Every brake shop suspected that maybe there's something else wrong because they thought that was too soon for brake work.

I had to bring my Focus in for wheel bearings and it has 33,000 miles on it. They told me that I need new brakes and rotors. Everyone I have talked to says that that doesn't make sense.
