i was taking the south i-75 exit ramp to east m-59 and experienced a stall out at the bottom of the ramp - where you merge with traffic going 65 mph. this is a wide, sweeping right hand turn. i drive the route often, and had experienced hesititation on previous occasions, but this was the first time the car stalled. the tank was 1/4 full. after rolling to a stop under the i-75 overpass bridge, i placed the car in neutral and it started. i proceeded without further incidence - counting my blessings i had not been rear-ended. i took the car to my regular mechanic, and he replaced the fuel pump which is located in the tank. he showed me how the filter was designed and became easily clogged. he also said that ford had other complaints on this situation, but there was no recall. i believe this to be a design defect that must be corrected, or i will be relacing the fuel pump in another 30k or so miles. it's not only the $300, but the thought of being rear-ended that should concern ford motor company, as well as the authorities.

2001 and up ford focus fuel pump & gas tank recall request. the fuel tank is made from a material that frequently flakes off and clogs the fuel pump very often. i have had 3 fuel pumps replaced already, and my car has less than 21,000 miles. due to the inferior design of the tank and fuel pump, the pump clogs too easily, then burns out leaving the car stranded. the design of the pump has a fine mesh screen before the larger screen so the large mesh screen is simply useless! the small screen clogs up from large flakes that would have been caught by the large screen if the pump had not been designed by retards.*ak

i am writing to you in regard to a host of problems i am currently experiencing with my 2001 ford focus zx3.these problems include, but are not limited to: (1) gears not shifting properly and signs of locking up during driving -- and brake grinding sounds; (2) continuous "flickering" of headlights and dashboard panel lights; (3) air conditioning and heating systems not functioning properly; (4) large pond of water (during heavy rains) in floor on front passenger side; (5) problems with fuel module and fuel monitor; and (6) transmission failure in progress. transmission failure in progress -- ecm codes erased by dealership -- fuel monitor and bad running condition very evident. he further stated the fluid is burnt very badly, he cannot service the transmission at this point and that this vehicle is going to go downhill from here. in other words, the 2001 focus that i purchased from town & country ford, inc. only nine months ago is not drivable and it will cost at least $2,000 to replace the transmission. this is clearly a defect. it has to be! i cannot afford to repair this vehicle and make payments on it at the same time.

i have had my car for one year and five months. i have replaced the fuel pump a month after purchase, twice within two months. my gas lines have fallen off the car, causing the neighborhood to be filled with fumes. stalls while driving, not matter the speed,dealership said they fixed the issue, still ongoing. car hesistates to go at times. often the inside of the car smells like gas. hard to put car in reverse and other gears, often pops out of gear. recently replaced clutch cable, tech says the clutch is fine. replaced the brakes and rotors after being told they were fine, two weeks later the rotors were gone. brakes continue to squeak. windshield is not sealed, you can hear air blowing in while driving. had a burning smell from under hood was told there was no problem, only to get a recall, and my cables were melted. brake lights always out, when i replace one the other goes out. i have contacted ford motor company, and dealership, both tell me i have to keep getting repairs. i asked ford motor company to buy the car back, and they refused. i feel this car is not safe, i hate driving it.*ak

i have upon more than one occasion had my 2000 ford focus zx3 stall and or die on me. this happens mostly on on-ramp and off-ramp situations, many times the car will shut down while entering the highway at 40+ mph this is a serious situation, stalling without warning will one day get me killed. just as well, i had the car at ford to discuss the situation, they said nothing was wrong and sent me on my way. i am still having issues with this stalling and stumbling, and would like some kind of recall or tsb put out. i think ford should replace all of our fuel tanks and fuel pumps. to this date i know of 5 other focus owners, both sedan and coupe (zx3) which i own, have had these same problems.

while driving down a freeway off-ramp, my 2001 ford focus zx3 started to buck and hesitate, eventually stalling and causing a dangerous condition due to sudden decceleration and loss of power steering and brakes. luckily the vehicle had enough inertia to coast down the ramp and eventually i was able to pull it into an emergency lane using the remaining assist left in the brake booster. there, i attempted multiple times to restart the vehicle and it finally started. it had a half tank of fuel so low fuel level was not the cause and i had only driven 163 miles since the last fill-up so i knew the fuel guage was operational. i attempted to drive to the nearest gas station to fill up just in case and as i as about to turn in the car died again. it restarted after multiple attempts and i waited a long time for traffic to get as clear as it would on this busy road. then, as i attempted to turn in, creeping forward and fearing the worst, the car died again, but luckily i had not yet begun to impede oncoming traffic. if i had been, an accident would likely have resulted. after multiple attempts, the vehicle did start and i pulled in, filled up, and drove home uneventfully to do some research. on the message board at focaljet.com i read about other focus consumers encountering a similar problem with a defective fuel pump and some sort of degradation of a material lining the fuel tank causing the condition i experienced. i feel it is a safety concern of high priority and should be brought to ford's attention immediately. i am angry that my life was put in danger running the most mundane of errands and i will let them know about it tommorrow.
