Focus SE 2.0L

I can't believe Ford let this POS roll off the assembly line. Everyone who works at Ford should feel ashamed to work for them.

I am really not sure what is wrong with my car but by reading others peoples experiences I think my engine may be getting ready to go out.... =(. It is make a loud noise and shaking really bad, I think it may start dying soon while I am driving or at least that's what I am afraid is going to happen... I really hope this is not the case because I am depending on this car to last me through college.

When first got car, there ws a problem with the gas line, car stalled like gas did not reach exelarator, recall on that, the the spring coil was another recall, and now this engine mess, what happen to cars lasting for ten years-does that not apply in the world we live in-no wonder the car dealerships are going under. my car was a used car, and i loved this car at first, then came all of the problems. My car is paid for and i cannot afford to buy another car at this time-if there is a class action suit i wish to be included.

My car started to vibrate really bad at any speed. One of the motor mounts was worn all the way down and another was wearing. Thanks to Ford the part cost over $150 because they wouldn't spend the extra penny to build a durable car.
