Ford Focus 2001
Ford Motor Company
Safety incident date:
Sept 08, 2003
Location:
Las Vegas, NV

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
