An okay small sporty car with minor issues
At 50,000 valve gasket leak - easy fix $15.
Transmission cooler went too; not so easy. $260 dollars at a dealer.
My fog lights and cruise control no longer work; living without it for now.
Tires are expensive when need changing with 16 inch rims.
Other than the things that have gone wrong above, and the typical brake issues, my Focus is very reliable.
It could do a little better on gas however because I can only get 250 miles on a full tank with mixed driving. Maybe it needs a tune up.
I love my Focus's styling; very sporty in the Pitch Black, and surprisingly on hot summer days it still has a new car scent.
I think it handles really well; it feels like you're driving a bigger car and the sound system has A lot OF BASS! It's a 2001 and people ask me if it's new. I would recommend a newer one with less miles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
