my focus experience.
my problem started the day i got the car from the dealer, on the way back the driver side power mirror won't go up and down, only left and right. since it was a friday i couldn't take it back til monday. had them checked out and it was a faulty mirror, they replaced it. fair enough.
few weeks later i started to notice that there is no air coming in to the car at all, even at highway speed. back to the dealer again, had them checked and found that the cable or whatever that carries the air to the airvent was not in position. had them fixed it on the day. few days later problem is back. took it back and fixed again, going good until now.
few months later there was this heavy rain in sydney one day, noticed water on passenger floor, and actually can see the water drops into the car while parked. took it back and had it looked and they said its been fixed. the other day it was rainning again and noticed the leaking again, took back once more and they had it for two days, the day i got it back they promised that it is now as good as a submarine. since it doesn't rain that often i can't find out if the problem is still there until its rainning again...
those are the 3 major problems i've had, not to mention rattles in the door, loose door handle on the driver side, steering wheel unstable while doing above 100km/h, any slight movement of the steering wheel at that speed it feels like the car is going to fall apart. and not to mention the lack of power even though the computer has been reflased, so that i was told. anyways, its soon going to have its 15k service. will let them have a look at the rattle and wheel balance or alignment.
i brought this car to get away from my old problematic carmary, but it actually given me more problmes then the old one. back to the dealer for 6 tims in 6 months, and this is a brand new car. i wonder what more problems i'll be facing later.
i really love this car, the way it drives is superb, apart from doing 100km above. had a aftermarket bodykit fitted, looks so good that i rather sit and look it than to drive it... this is my first time buying a new car, what an experience.
