2001 Ford Focus Owner Comments

problem #1

Focus 4-cyl

So many problems don't know where to start, ok lets talk about the doors. We bought the car new in 2001 and almost immediately started experiencing difficulties. The trunk wouldn't latch and the door light would be on or it would latch but wouldn't come open we complained to the dealer they would "adjust"it. However, the problem would be back in a day or two, and it was getting worse. The doors started to jam, and fly open while moving. Took it to the dealer and they told us to call Ford company complaint line and they said it was a mileage problem, and they explicitly said they would not help. We have called the dealer and the Ford Motor Co. Many times and they are no longer helping, even though the mechanic at the dealer said the doors had internal damage. Please understand this has been an on-going problem and the last time our 9 yr.old would have fallen out of the car had he not been wearing his seatbelt. Oh, yes then there is the seatbelts, brake lines, door knobs, brake rotors, fuel pump, wheel bearings the list goes on we have a lemon please contact us to help.
