I Have Had “brake Issues Since Day One Of Owning My 2001 ford focus Station Wagon. From The Very Beginning There Was Moaning Sounds When I Braked. The Salesman & service Dept Told Me “it’s Because They Are New”, @ Around 13,000 Miles They Began To Make More Prominant “moans” I Was Told That It’s “normal”. At 16,500 Miles Severe Moaning & Grinding, Then Not Being Able To Stop Easily, I Brought It In To An Independant Mechanic , Since My Bumper To Bumper Warranty Does Not Cover “normal Wear & Tear Items” Such As Brakes & I Was Told I Would Have To Pay A Diagnostic Fee,also Not In My Warranty, To Determine What The Issues Are,& This Mechanic Told Me That I Was Metal To Metal, I Needed New Front Rotors & Pads, $250.also That The focus Has Brake Problems & Was Not Designed Well. Here It Is 3 Months Later & @19,800 Miles My Back Brakes Start Squealing & Screeching Loudly, I Bring It In Again & The Shoes Are Completely Worn Down & I Needed The Rotors Machined, It Was Another $135 (which Was I Bargain Since I Called The ford Dealer & They Wanted @$300 For That Work). He Told Me That His Shop Does All The Fleet Work For A Neighboring Enterprise Rental Car Office & The focus‘ Are Constantly In There For Brakes. I Called ford‘s Customer Satisfaction Line & Reported The Issue. I Am Mailing A Letter To ford‘s Dispute Resolution Board & I Am Hoping That You Will Help Us focus Owners With Bad Brakes Get Retribution From ford For This Faulty System. Thank You
