2007 Ford Focus SE Sedan 2.0 from North America
Good value for the money
So far, the only thing that has gone wrong on my 2007 Focus SE is a bad battery (which Ford replaced under warranty), and I replaced all tires with Michelin Touring tires (80,000 mile). Within 2 weeks of owning the vehicle, one tire popped and another one leaked air. I did not like the quality of the tires, so I replaced them. I'm glad I had one of those tire inflation cans, because it was raining hard the day I got a flat! I was not about to change a tire on the side of the highway.
Makes a funny squeaky sound over bumps during cold mornings..... where's it coming from?
Those oil changing places flooded my engine with oil, and my spark plugs were soaked with oil, and I replaced the spark plugs with Autolite Iridium Xtreme. My car runs good now.
Happy Camper... :)
My friend has a banged up 1995 4 dr. automatic Mercury Tracer (or Escort), and he has over 100,000 miles on it with no major problems. I thought, how bad could a 2007 Focus be?
The interior and overall quality build is acceptable for the price, and meets my basic transportation needs. I hear a lot folks complaining about the seats, dashboard, quality, etc... but in this "compact" car segment, the Focus is a good deal. Toyota Corolla's are over priced with similar options (and a smaller engine/car).
I bought it to save money on gas and get reliable transportation that's fun to drive too.
It's my second American car (I usually buy Nissans).
The Focus does the job. I have extras like alloy wheels and sunroof (which I love). I've been calculating my gas, and I get about 33-34 miles per gallon (Automatic Transmission), if I take it easy with the accelerator and drive normal. For those who love to constantly pass up cars on the highway, gun the car during stop signs/traffic lights or love to speed over 65, your mileage will drop under 30!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
