2001 Ford Focus SE 2.0 Zetec from North America
New front rotors @ 80,000 km.
Fuel pump sprang a leak and had to be replaced @ 110,000 km.
Front coil springs and struts @ 110,000 km.
Lots of tires (they last about 40,000km).
Lots of rattles and squeaks.
Ignition switch @ 70,000 km.
Heater motor @ 90,000 km (still squeaks).
In spite of the problems I have had with it, it is a good car. I live in a place where it gets to be -45c, the roads are terrible and I drive the hell out of it!
I have had GM's and Chrysler's, and FORD has treated me the best out of all of them. This little car has been a work horse for me, and still continues to start if I can't plug it in, in the winter. Remember, this is the cheapest car they make.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
