      I had a 2002 Ford Focus SE Sedan. I got it in March of 2003 from a Ford dealership in Edenton, NC. I had always heard bad things about Ford cars but this was a great looking car. It was kind of classy but yet sporty. Not to mention it was $12,000.

      I soon learned what people were saying about Ford cars was and is true as well as the fact you get what you pay for. I had not had the car long and I started having minor problems. There were only 30,000 miles on the car when I got it. I kept the oil changed and the car matinanced like it should

      have been.

      When I hit 90,000 miles that is when my car started having real problems. My check engine light started coming on. I went to a small automechanic place that I trust and has always done a great job in the past. They said they could not find anything wrong with it and turned the light off.

      They also told me then I need to take it to a Ford dealership and have them look at it. So I did. They could not find anything wrong with it either. After taking it to the dealership, the check engine light came on again and my car started making a ...

      • funny sound.

        I made an appointment to take my car in again to have it looked at but the day before I stopped at a gas station and that is when it officially died. I called to get my car towed. The dealership called me later telling me that I needed a new engine because a rod came off inside of the engine. I immediatly told them I kept the oil changed and the car matinanced which they had record of because that is where I always took it.

        The smaller auto mechanic place was when I had the car before this one. They said that it was just the engine, nothing I had done or hadn’t done.

        I could not have prevented this. I told them to go ahead and get a new engine.

        So they did. When I got the new engine I again had problems, almost right away. At that time my transmission started acting up as well. I then new I would never get a Ford again.

        Also it was time for a new car. I have heard others with the same car as I had have major complaints as well. More so with the transmission than the engine. Mine was with both.

        I do not recommend this car to anyone. I really do not recommend Ford period for that matter. Hondas are great!
