Ford Focus 2007 Problems
No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the Ford Focus 2007 reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.
Can I upgrade the steering wheel for a 2007 Ford Focus to add more controls?
Steering wheel controls are very convenient but, generally speaking, they’re not something that can be retro-fitted. Even if there was higher specification Focus with steering wheel controls as a factory fitment (and the Ghia version of your car did) it’s unlikely your car would have the wiring and electronics to adapt the steering wheel from that model. Even if the wheel could be physically fitted, the functions wouldn’t be accessible to the rest of the car.

Ford Focus 2007: Failed bonnet lock?
I too would be disappointed if the bonnet catch on my car failed, but as your car is seven years old I doubt that you would get a sympathetic hearing. But you might, so even though you have been rejected I would write to Ford Customer Assistance and explain your case for compensation. If you want to take it further you could have a solicitor write the letter for you, or you could consult Consumers Affairs.

2007 Ford XT vibration
It's most likely the brake booster, which is a known problem on Falcons of that era. The brakes are not completely releasing. Adjusting the rod between the brake master cylinder and the booster, or replacing the booster can fix it.
Ford Focus 2007: Clunking over 20km/h
No, it's not normal. You need to have a mechanic determine what is causing it. It sounds like it's coming from the driveline, but you first need to determine what it is before you can fix it.
