2001 Ford Focus SE 4 cylinder from North America
Found On Road Dead stands for FORD Focus!
The brakes make noises all the time.
The blower fan was replaced at 46k.
The water pump went bad at 57k miles.
The power windows work and then stop.
Have had four sets of tires on car due to front problems.
The ignition just went bad so the key does not turn to start the car at 87k.
The gas mileage is fair, but look to overseas cars to be better. Overall maintenance standards are below par for the Focus SE. All the gauges are in good positions and easy to work. The engine is underpowered, but will do around town. The arm rest is in a poor position in the front seat.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

The engine and interior complaints should have been noticed in the test drive.
I also think a garage is screwing you over by not doing their job properly for some repairs. Brakes making noise can be the result of non OEM parts or worn calipers.
