2001 Ford Focus Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2001 Ford Focus

Warped front brake rotors may cause the steering wheel to shimmy when the brakes are applied. Our technicians tell us the brake rotors and pads should  be replaced to correct this concern.

Ford has recalled certain 2000-2005 Focus vehicles in states that use road salt because corrosion may build up at the pawl pivot area of the rear door latch.
