A Car i have always searched for in performance and wanted to own, but has had failures upon first owning and driving this car, the engine management light appeared on the dash dail, it was diagnosed as the lamba sensor (02) and had to be renewed and repaired, then 1,2,3 selection on the heating was not operating only working on the number 4 blower in which i had to pay £120 to fix, aircon and climate was not working, resitor had to be renewed and replaced, now repaired and working, but on a recent journey up the motorway from plymouth to bath, the engine management light appeared on the dash and had to drive it back to plymouth with this light on, after resting the car up the light was no longer showing, so feel these number of problems with this car has let me down in my driving experience on a nice looking car with good power and performance

It's getting a bit long in the tooth now, but I would definitely get another one if we were getting another hatchback. We need a bigger car so are getting an estate. I have the 2ltr Ghia version hb and it is a cracking car to drive, plenty of pull and fine on the motorway, nimble around town. Enough gadgets, comfy seats, not a bad boot. I was surprised when we tested it as I was very sceptical about the Focus, but as soon as put my foot down I was converted. The body work has stared to rust a little lately, around the front doors and it's starting to look a little scruffy, and we've got a problem with the engine overheating.

The new ones are supposed to be even more impressive, but I have done he Focus now, time for something bigger and better.

This is the second Focus I have owned, first was 2001Y plate mark one - that was a fantastic car in all respects (best I've owned). Thought I was making the right decision moving to next generation Focus - how wrong I was! Although there is more room inside and in the boot there is no comparison in driving experience and build quality/finish.
Both of my vehicles have been serviced at the scheduled intervals - reliability was never an issue on my old model, to date on newer model I've had the cylinder head replaced after 30k and power steering pump replaced at 40k (last month)!
You see 2001Y plate Focuses still around looking superb - the paint & finish doesn't bear comparison.

Suitable size for my needs with good visibility. Controls etc are easy & straightforward to use. More spaces could have been provided inside the car to hold things. Also, the handbrake is offset towards the passenger's seat (for left hand drive cars & not changed for right hand drive?) One 'design fault' would be the way the tailgate, if opened quickly when wet, will allow water to fall into the boot instead of draining away down the pillars. A wet tailgate therefore has to be opened slowly! Otherwise, it is a comfortable car with good boot space and leg room front & rear. The rear seats fold down & back easily when needed.

Had one issue with the push button start. car saying steering lock engaged, when it wasn't so would not allow the engine to start. had to get the aa who disconnected the battery and earthed out the cables prior to re connecting it. this solved the problem but when I took it to ford to have the reason checked they could not find a problem. (I had a similar problem with my previous ford mondeo button start). Not had to buy spares yet except the small strings which lift the parcel shelf when you open the hatch. I have had a couple of these snap and they cost over ł8 each to replace which I thought was a bit expensive.

I had an old BMW (12 years old) which had never gone wrong so it was a bit of an eye opener when the steering rack failed just after we purchased it. A year later the alternator failed and was very difficult to replace due to garages lack of knowledge. One persistant problem is that the tailgate leaks and im told that it's a common problem (readers comments please!!). The steering rack was fixed under warranty but the alternator well, it was expensive and the lack of knowledge regarding fitting thedrive belt from idependent garages left me relying on the main dealer whom to be fair came up trumps

Focus ST (mk2). Amazing car for the money, build quality also excellent for the money. Is so well behaved and easy to drive slowly, and exhilerating when pushed. Frustrated with Ford's after sales / warranty - took 4 months to fix a clutch hydraulics problem - back and forth and on and on... all covered though. Very thirsty motor, more than I'd expected, but all is forgiven as it's such a joy to drive. Would definitely buy another.

No problems, starts first time, regularly serviced regular oil changes keep everything checked and in working order. The car is a very thirsty motor with regard to petrol consumption and a full tank does no more than 310 miles at the present time but this being worked on. tax bracket for this car is quite extortionate being at ł275 last year for 12 months which puts it into the same category as many more higher powered vehicles.

Not as reliable as expected and costs far more to run than Ford would have you believe. It is the first of the 'New Focus's on the road, I had to wait month's for delivery. It is useless in the snow.

Pretty bulletproof really. Things that have gone wrong have generally been minor - and not so much the car's fault, as just a fact of driving in the UK (eg the suspension breaking almost completely, thanks to the awful state of our roads).

Generally quite good, no problems with the engine. the wheel bearings had to be changed twice within 3 years. no problem with electrics except the speedo sometimes plays up.

The Focus is a decent package but is flawed by an underpowered uneconomical engine range. However, it is still one of the best suspension set ups which is pleasing to drive.
