2006 Ford Focus Problems

rear door latch broken

The rear driverside door would not stay shut. We tried everything but the latch would not latch. We ended up taking it to our mechanic and he had to replace the entire latch mechanism. This should never happen considering that this door is hardly used and the car only has 37000 miles on it.

Broken motor mounts

All 3 motor mounts are broken and repair is expected to be around $800.

Bought my focus wagon new in 2006. I had the latch on the hatch replaced in the first 6 months after losing stuff twice out the back on the road. Replaced the brakes and first set of tires around 30k miles, replaced another set of brakes at 50K and 2 more sets of rear tires before hitting 100k miles. Changed the shocks and struts around 50k miles. Needless to say, I'm not happy with how For...
My car is only 4 years old and I've had to put in a new water pump, brakes, power steering pump, and now I'm told one of the motor mounts needs to be replaced (plus tires but that is to be expected).
