Steer crazy

Asked by Sarah Martin

ON OCCASIONS the steering of my 2002 Ford Focus has locked while driving. My dealer said the steering column was faulty and needed replacing, but that Ford would not cover the complete cost of the work and I'd have to pay $1000. I asked if I could pick up the car without having it fixed, and was quickly told I could if I signed a waiver. I have spoken to head office and it was less then interested.

WE CONTACTED Ford on your behalf and it said that, after consulting your dealer, it would cover the full cost of replacing the steering column. Ford said it was the first it had heard of such a problem with the Focus and would refer the problem to its European counterpart for investigation.
