Ford Focus 2008 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Focus here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Ford Focus 2008: Broken window regulator
Have the dealer give you the part number and name of the part required and see if you get it Ford in England or Germany, or even an independent parts supplier.
Ford Focus 2008: Lack of manual cars
More than 80 per cent of cars sold in Australia are now automatics and that share is still rising, fast. When companies are looking to cut cost and complications from their line-ups, it's easy to drop a manual that few people want. Between X-Trail and CR-V I give The Tick to the Honda.
Ford Focus Cabriolet: Does it have problems?
The folding hard top roof is a great idea, but it's also quite a complex and difficult thing to make work reliably. Classic Ford fans will be aware that the company had a folding hard top in its '57 model in America, and getting that roof to work the way it was designed is very hard. Obviously they have made considerable progress in the last 50 or so years, but it is still a very complex piece of gear to get it to raise and lower smoothly, and seal properly. Anyone thinking of buying a car with such a roof should look carefully at the operation of the roof before they buy.
Ask Smithy Xtra Non-dealer service for Ford
Yes, that is a good reason to stick with the dealer, as it’s most unlikely that those upgrades and “fixes” would have been done by a non-factory service outlet.
