Focus LX

  • Automatic transmission
  • 28,000 miles

Again my car only has about half the mileage allowed for the year it is. I have had to replace the fuel pump and some other things in relation to that. I am starting to think now that I have almost gotten my car paid off it is going to start acting like a "disposable" car. Meaning it was only meant to last as long as the loan. Then it might as well be disposed of because it is going to start costing more money than it is worth.

Focus SE

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,000 miles

Last year I had a problem with my Focus suddently shifting very hard while in low gears (I have an automatic), then sputtering and quitting while driving or parked. This problem went on for months as I took the car into the Ford dealer and outside mechanics, but noone could seem to duplicate the problem. Finally ford decided it was the 02 sensor causing "sticking" and also that this caused my fuel pump to go bad because it was working too hard. Then my battery died. When it rains, it pours with this car... and no one has any answers. Not only does this car have every problem under the sun, but many times, the engine electrical system is "locked" and can only be accessed by a Ford dealer... WTF?!
