2005 Ford Focus ZX4 1.9L from North America
I hope I haven't paid extreme prices for a lemon flavoured Ford!
Rubber Seals, such as around windows, as well as side mirrors, "bleed": streaks reappear almost immediately after washing.
Developing problem with "Squeaky Wheels"; obvious brake grinding: and this with such low mileage!!! Very disappointing!!!
What appeared at first to be a solid-running performer is starting to have serious problems with the brakes and / or wheels. The engine and transmission are superb, but the rest of the car is showing signs of shoddy workmanship!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Sometimes brakes can make a squeaking noise from dust buildup, and it isn't necessarily a sign that anything is wrong. My car does this sometimes, especially with light brake pressure like rolling up to a stop sign. Even though the disc brakes squeak a little, I can check the pad wear and they look brand new with no hint of grooving of the rotor. I have seen spray cans of a product called 'Brake Quiet' that you can spray on your rotors to suppress this dust and stop the squeaking.
