Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Focus 2006 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Ford Focus 2006: Air compressor failed too soon
I don't think you could claim against Ford for the compressor, the car is now six years old. I would take it to an air-conditioning specialist and have them check the compressor to see if it can be repaired rather than replaced. Likewise the brake rotors, 40,000 km is not uncommon in a European car like the Focus. Again I would seek out a brake specialist and see if you can get some better aftermarket rotors to fit.Show more
Putting the F back into Focus
The easiest way of fixing it is to buy a new badge, which will come with double-sided tape already applied and ready to affix to the body, but if you don’t want to do that just use some double-sided tape, which can be bought at hardware stores or office suppliers. Using glues would damage to paint.Show more
Quality of Ultratune service
It's always a concern when using a non-factory service outlet that you could miss out on recalls or updates issued by the factory. My feeling is that non-factory service outlets are capable of doing the basic servicing, but I'm not convinced they keep up to date with the changes that take place, sometimes automatically by carmakers and their dealers without any advice to the wider community. But I would also say in your case that as your car is out of warranty that you could have it serviced at a non-factory outlet without too much risk of losing out in any way. I would also suggest that you discuss your concern with the outlet you are considering using.Show more
Ford Focus: Can it run on E10?
The Barina will run happily on E10 and I doubt the dealer's advice about the "emission light". Ford, on the other hand, recommends you use the higher octane rating premium fuel, hence the advice not to use E10. Your Focus will run on E10, probably without any trouble, but it will run better on premium unleaded.Show more
