I Purchased A 2002fordfocus Se. At 10,956 Miles I Had To Replace The Front Brakes. I Was Billed 256.06 For This Repair. I Also Had A Water Leak That Occurred On The Front Passenger Side. The Leak Was Fixed. The Problem Was Said To Be The Pollen Filter. The Center Console Was Loose, That Was Also Fixed Asap. And Lastly The fuel Economy Is Far From What ford Claims It To Be.

There Is A Line That Went Straight Into The Engine’s Intake That Has Been Leaking Fluid Since 2,000 Miles And Was Inspected By Deler Who Told To Me That It Was Nothing. But The Engine Case Should Not Have A Large Leak Of Fluid That Soon. Finally Now, They Have Done Something On This And Replaced The Hose, As It Was Seen Once More And Knows Of All The Times Reported. I Hope This Is Just Not A Easy Fix Or This Now Hasn’t Caused Any Damange To The Inside Of The Engine Itself, As The Engine Has Been In The Shop For Riding Rough. They Told Me Last Time That The Part Of The Transmission That Was Fixed Would Fix This. I Think It Is Due To The Oil Leak On The Top Of The Engine Case Since It Was New. A New Car Should Never Have A Oil Leak On A Engine Case.

Car Is Stalling And Dying When Stopped. Will Not Idle Properly. Have Replace Both Spark Plugs And Plug Wires Even Though Only Have 36k Miles On The Car. Only Thing Diagnostic Test Show Is The fuel Is Too Lean. I Am Assuming That I Will Have To Replace The fuel Filter Since ford Will Not Include The 2002 Models Even Though They Are Having The Same Problems As Earlier Models. *jb

Driving My 2002 Zx5 fordfocus Around Pittsburgh, With Less Than A 1/4 Tank The Engine Started Stuttering. Then The Car Stalled. I Turned It Back On And Drove About A 1/4 Mile When It Started Stuttering And Shaking Pretty Bad Again. When I Tried To Accelerate, There Was No Power And The Engine Stalled Again. I Waited A Little Before Turning It Back On. It Did The Same Thing Twice More; Once It Stalled When I Was Doing A Left Turn At A Busy Traffic Intersection And The Other While Driving Down A Crowded Avenue. Fortunately I Was Able To Make The 2-hour Trip Back Home Without Any Incidents. I Took It To The ford Dealership In My Town And They Told Me They Needed To Replace The fuel Pump, fuel Filter And Also Perform A fuel Flush. The Total Cost Is Roughly $600.00. I Have Been Looking In The Internet And There Is A History Of Failures With The fuel Delivery Module On 2000-2001 focus. ford Has Claimed That The Problem Was Solved In 2002. My Bumper-to-bumper Warranty Expired This Past January And The Dealership Says That Since My Car Is 2002 The Extended Coverage Program 03n01 Does Not Apply In My Case, Thus I Have To Pay For The Repairs. I Disagree And I Do Not Feel That The Cost Should Be My Responsibility. My Car Shows All The Symptoms Described On The 03n01 Document, Which Is A Quality Issue That ford Should Have Resolved And Clearly Has Not. It Is Unsafe Driving A Car That Can Stall Without Warning Leaving The Driver Stuck In A Dangerous Situation. *jb

I Drive A 2002fordfocus Wagon, Mileage 85,578. Two Days Ago I Had Trouble Starting It. I Did Get It Started But Everytime I Took My Foot Off The Accelerator The Engine Stall. There Was No Check Engine Light Warning Prior To This Or During The Event. I Was Able To Drive My Car Home, But Had To Restart It Each Time I Had To Stop. The Next Morning It Drove Fine But I Took It To A ford Dealer For Diagnosis And Repair. I Was Told It Was A fuel Pump Failure And It Cost Me Over A $1000 For Repair. (parts Lister Were Sender, Gasket, Kit, Tube, Gasket, Filter). In Researching Recalls I Found That Model Years 2000-2001 Were Having This Exact Same Problems And A Recall Was Determined For This. I Do Normal Driving – 70% Highway, 30% In Town. My Car Is Just Over 5 Years Old, I Don’t Believe That Normal Wear And Tear Should Cause The fuel Pump To Fail. It Seems To Me That This Is Some Kind Of Defect In The Original Part Or Assembly. *tr

I Purchased A Used 2002fordfocus In Fl. While Driving It To My Home In Tn, I Experienced Stalling At Hwy Speeds. I Changed The fuel Filter And Continued On My Trip. It Stalled Again And Wouldn’t Restart. I Had It Towed To A ford Dealer That Diagnosed The Problem As The Alternator And Battery. I Replaced Them Both. The Car Started And I Began My Travel Back Home. Upon My Return Home, When I Would Utilize The Car, I Would Experience Stalling Under Varying Conditions. I Took It To A Mechanic Who Could Not Find That Problem, But Did Replace The Thermostat. Typically The Car Would Run For Several Hours Before The Stalling Would Begin. I Could Usually Allow The Engine To Cool For Approximately 20-30 Minutes And The Car Would Start. I Could Drive For Approximately 15 Minutes Before It Would Stall Again. My Latest Experience Happened At Hwy Speeds. After 30 Minutes Of Travel The Car Stalled And Has Not Restarted Since. I Contacted ford Who Informed Me That My Car Was Not Part Of Their “recall (s)” Due To Where It Was Assembled. I Find It Very “coincidental” That My Car Is Experiencing The Exact Problems That The “recalled” Cars Experienced. Is There A Course On Action That I Should Take? *tr

Faulty Ignition Cylinder Lock, Fails Without Warning. I Had It Replaced 12/15/07 And It Is Now Defective Again On 4/6/09. I Had It Fixed Last Time For $200, But It Can Cost Up To $400. How This Isn’t A Safety Issue Is Beyond Me. Then Again The Pinto’s Exploding Gas Tank Wasn’t Deemed A “safety Issue” By ford, Either. *tr

My 2002fordfocus Zts Suddenly Stalled In Heavy, Fast Moving Traffic. I Had To Wrestle The Car To The Curb Without Power Steering Or Power Brakes While At The Same Time Avoiding Traffic. I Took It To The Shop And They Said The fuel Pump Has Failed And Needed Replacement. Total Cost Estimate Is Nearly $800. This Is A Common Problem In 2001 And 2000 Models And This Part Is Even Covered In An Extended Warranty For Those Years. However, The 2002 Is Not Covered. I Think That This Should Be A Safely Concern For ford But I Think They Are Doing The Bare Minimum. I Will Never Buy Another ford Again. No Wonder They Are Having Such Difficult Times At ford! *tr

2002fordfocus Bought The End Of March 2009, Now Sits In Driveway, Because ford Will Not Fix fuel Delivery Module Failure, Because Of Vin# Not On List As Being One Of The 671000 Units Affected. The Car Is Doing The Same Thing As All The Other 671000 That Were Affected, Surging, Loss Of Power, Stalling, Hesitation. We Were Going Down The Road, Changed Lanes And It Started Doing This, Now I Have Had 3 Mechanics Work On This Car, No Help Replaced fuel Pump, Battery, fuel Filter Etc, No Luck. It Starts When It Wants Will Run Then It Starts Losing Power, Stalls. We Did Expect Problems With Used Car, But Not One That Should Have Been Included In A Recall And Fixed. If Accident Happens Because Of This Problem ford Will Be At Fault. *tr

2002fordfocus Exhibits Engine Hesitation When The fuel Tank Is Below 1/4 Full. There Are Acceleration Problems And The Car Has Completely Lost Power On At Least One Occasion While Driving On The Highway. This Began To Happen With 80,000km On The Car And Now Always Happens When Driving At Highway Speeds With Only 1/4 Tank Of Gas.

I Was Lucky It Was Early On A Sunday Morning And Traffic Was Light. If I Had Been In Heavy Traffic, This Sudden Failure Would Have Posed A Grave Safety Risk.
