2008 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.

Warped Front Brake Rotors Can Cause Steering Wheel Shimmy

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.
