Ford Focus 2009 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Focus 2009 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Will a 2004 Ford Focus 2.0 manual clutch plate work in a 2009 Ford Focus?
Although both the Ford Focus from 2004 and 2009 were both offered with a two-litre petrol engine, those engines were actually different in terms of their mechanical specification. With that in mid, it’s very unlikely that the clutch from the earlier car would be compatible with the later version. A quick search also revealed that the replacement clutch kits for each version of the Focus you’re dealing with carry a different part number which is a pretty good indication that there are differences between the two.Show more
Ford Focus 2009: Locked in park, now won't start
The most likely cause is a faulty neutral/park start switch that prevents the car from starting unless it’s either in Park or Reverse.Show more
Ford Focus 2009: Is it a good car?
The Focus is a great driving car, but there are serious issues with its dual-clutch automatic transmission, so serious you should avoid it, or buy a manual. Consider others like the Mazda3, Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, Kia Rio, etc.Show more
Ford Focus 2009: Using too much fuel
Ford's claimed economy for the Focus manual is 7.3 L/100 km, which is a blend of city and country driving. The claimed economy in a city driving situation, which sounds like it could be like yours, is 10 L/100 km, while the claimed figure for country driving is 5.6 L/100 km. I would suggest you take it on a long trip and measure the economy in that situation before doing anything else. If it comes close to the 5.6 L/100 km claimed figure you could assume the car is running ok. If it doesn't come close then you assume something isn't quite right and investigate the problem. I would suggest you also give it a good hard run to blow out the carbon that's probably accumulated in the combustion chamber, and see if that helps.Show more
