I've had many issues ... But I still love my SVT ...

The costs have been well over the Thousands and has put me in a bind once or twice ... but one thing is for sure ... when you fix an issue ... and takes a long time to go out again. I didn't go through fixes til I hit 125,000 miles ... so it was time to start fixing the usual (Brakes, tranny, clutch, tie-rods, cv joints, shift-linkage, engine flooding, ecu, intake, header replacement*pothole*, wheels galore, tires ... etc etc.)

And I Still love the Car.

On my 05 ST the back rear door speakers blew up twice under warranty Then they went again a third time. SO I replaced them with some polk audios. I guess I was kickin the beats to hard. Other than that nothing wrong at all ...

Nothing bad...a wheel bearing, brakes. When its real cold outside its hard to get into gears from time to time. But i've heard thats just the fluids being cold.

Leaking thermostat housing, noising front sway bar links, broken front springs and difficult shifting into 2nd gear.

Power Steering is lame on the focus

A Ford focus 2009 model was just purchased for me. It almost feels like a car without power steering. It's unresponsive when I turn the wheel and does not have a good car feel to it. I test drove several foreign cars that drove much better. The focus feels kind of like its in between not having power steering and having it. Its hard to turn the wheel compared to other cars and not at all a pleasure to drive. I would never have spent my money on this car. I'm very disppointed in it.

Couldn't you tell that when you test drove it? Some people actually like to know what is going on in the real world? Buy some big old Caddy and plow through.
