Ford Focus ProblemsWorn Motor Mounts cause Vibration
As the motor mounts break down or wear, additional noise and vibration may be noted when the vehicle is at idle. Replacement of the motor mounts would be required to remedy this condition.
In areas of high corrosion rear wheel bearings tend to fail. Ford agreed to replace these failed bearings at no cost. This program was to expire on December 31, 2002. Our technicians tell us it is unlikely Ford will replace any more of these failed bearings free of charge.
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.
