2000 Ford Focus SE 2.0 from North America
Great value for under 17,000 with taxes and all
This car is in perfect shape except for the damn squealing brakes! The sound is almost ear piercing when you are braking. I have talked to many other Focus owners and it is said to be normal.
I keep it in showroom shape and is clean as a whistle. It doesn't have the Zetec engine but I still can make those tires squeal like a pig!
It handles great on turns, is unusually roomy and is such a pleasure to ride. I'd recommend it to anyone who is in the market. Give it a try. I even added a 3000 dollar stereo system to mine to make it sound great as well as look great!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
