FORD FOCUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on Jan 19, 2003.FORD FOCUS 2003, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with VISIBILITY:DEFROSTER/DEFOGGER SYSTEM:REAR WINDOW . after leaving my auto, i returned to find the rear window shattered, but in tact/in place. there no signs of any impact or attempted entry. the police were called and they said they could not find any evidence of anything striking the window and appeared it might be a faulty window. upon bringing it to the dealer's sevice shop, the manager said he would notify his ford rep of this problem. he said normally they would not do anything but since the auto was so new, he would try to see what he could do. upon investigating if there was a ford recall or similar regarding this problem, i came accross at least one other occassion where the window just shattered and was replaced by ford under warranty. the individual said ford claimed it was due to welding irregularities and such. when i was speaking to the service manager at ford, he claimed that the 2003 ford focus rear defroster was changed and they had given it a higher amp to make it hotter. since it has been about 6 dgrees outside, it could have been hot and shattered when cooling quickly - he did not know and was just searching for answers. regardless, the auto had 440 miles on it and was only about 10 days old when this occurred. it could have been serious if this windowed shattered and blew out while driving, possibly causing harm to any passengers in the back - or anywhere for that matter. i believe this needs to be checked out to prevent any possible harm to anyone. the auto is a 2003 ford focus se sedan..Mileage was 440 miles.

FORD FOCUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on Nov 02, 2003.FORD FOCUS 2003, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:DELIVERY . approximately 2 months ago, i was traveling at 70 mph in freeway traffic, and my 2003 ford focus quit accelerating. there was no prior warning.*ak i began pumping the gas pedal, thinking a fuel line might be clogged, but it didn't seem to help. finally, although somewhat chugging, i got enough acceleration to weave out of traffic and exit at an offramp. i pulled into the first parking lot, put my car in neutral, and let it idle. the engine sounded smooth. after a few minutes, i put the car back in drive and all was fine. i took my car to the san diego ford dealership and was told no problem could be detected. i was advised to let the gas tank go to empty, add stp, and see if the problem ceased. i did so. now, several weeks later, i was driving about 65mph down a dangerous winding grade near my home in morongo valley. again, my car lost acceleration. i began pumping the gas pedal, but the motor just revved. it was as though my car had slipped into neutral. i glanced down at the automatic shift lever, to see if i had accidentally knocked it out of gear. it was still in drive. i began losing speed and had to coast down to the bottom of the grade, where there was parking accessibility. the same as before, i placed my car in park, let it idle for a couple of minutes, put it in drive, and it was fine. i took it to palm springs ford, where it is right now. i received a phone message friday evening, after work, and i was told the car has checked out fine. i had assumed this would happen, because the problem is so intermittent. the service attendant, mike bruni, stated he had documented the problem and i could pick up my car. i left a message on his voicemail, explaining my fear of a collision. there is definitely a major problem that must be fixed, or i feel my safety is in jeopardy. until the problem is eliminated, i am reluctant to take my car home. i see the 2000-2001 focus had a stalling problem also. any relation?.Mileage was 12000 miles.

FORD FOCUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on Mar 07, 2004.FORD FOCUS 2003, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . on saturday morning i bought the car - a brand new 2003 ford focus se wagon. on sunday morning, i was traveling about 50mph when i applied the brake due to the traffic conditions of the moment. instantly, the back end of the car swerved to the right in a jack-knife manner. the car spun around and threw itself onto the shoulder of the road. the front end wound up pointed in the direction of the oncoming traffic. fortunately the car landed in a sandy spot with no damage to the vehicle or to me. it was as if i had hit black ice, except that driving conditions that day were perfect - 50 degrees, sunny and dry with good road surface. in my opinion, this incident may be the result of poor design: that is the rear end of the focus se wagon is too light to hold the road when the brakes are applied at highway speeds, or the brakes failed, causing the car to spin. in any event, this was a near death experience for me. i think that this car is a death trap for me and a hazard for everyone else near it on the road. *ak.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 100 miles.

FORD FOCUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on Jan 15, 2003.FORD FOCUS 2003, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with UNKNOWN OR OTHER . after leaving my auto, i returned to find the rear window shattered, but in tact/in place. there no signs of any impact or attempted entry. the police were called and they said they could not find any evidence of anything striking the window and appeared it might be a faulty window. upon bringing it to the dealer's sevice shop, the manager said he would notify his ford rep of this problem. he said normally they would not do anything but since the auto was so new, he would try to see what he could do. upon investigating if there was a ford recall or similar regarding this problem, i came accross at least one other occassion where the window just shattered and was replaced by ford under warranty. the individual said ford claimed it was due to welding irregularities and such. when i was speaking to the service manager at ford, he claimed that the 2003 ford focus rear defroster was changed and they had given it a higher amp to make it hotter. since it has been about 6 dgrees outside, it could have been hot and shattered when cooling quickly - he did not know and was just searching for answers. regardless, the auto had 440 miles on it and was only about 10 days old when this occurred. it could have been serious if this windowed shattered and blew out while driving, possibly causing harm to any passengers in the back - or anywhere for that matter. i believe this needs to be checked out to prevent any possible harm to anyone. the auto is a 2003 ford focus se sedan. thank you, michael maleto.Mileage was 0 miles.

FORD FOCUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on Oct 25, 2004.FORD FOCUS 2003, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with STEERING:COLUMN LOCKING:ANTI-THEFT DEVICE . i recently purchased a used 2003 ford focus from menlove dodge toyota in bountiful in late september. verything was going fine, until one day my wife comes home an hour late from work saying that the keys for our car would turn in the ignition, she had to enlist the help 2 other co-workers & finally got it started after an hour of trying it. o i went out to take a look at the ignition and sure enough the key would not turn until after a bout 20-30 tries. so then i got to thinking, with this car having less than 50,000 miles on it i should have it looked at. after talking to other people & doing research on the internet, it appears to be a very common problem, which ford apparently fails to acknowledge. this is a very serious problem as what if you were driving on the freeway & your car stops running, your going 65 mph, the steering wheel locks because the key wont turn to the on position again. i called to get a quote on getting this fixed and was told it would cost me in the ball park of 200-300 dollars for a defect that is obviously a know problem by ford. have found a message board that other for focus owners have posted information on with the same complaint. my felling is, with so many ford focus owners out there with the same problem, ford needs to step up and admit there is a problem & issue a recall on these ignitions. here is the url to the site i referred to: http://www.autowhiz.com/messageboards/message.php?id=1784&page=1*ak.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 36915 miles.

FORD FOCUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on Apr 16, 2004.FORD FOCUS 2003, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION . we bought a new ford focus in december of 2002. in march 2004, with about 20,000 miles on it, the ignition switch started to act up. when inserted into the ignition the key got stuck and would not turn on several occasions. after spending about 20 to 40 minutes of wiggling the key and knocking on the steering column it would finally turn. we brought it to the dealership in april after being stuck at night for almost 2 hours on a deserted parking lot. the ignition cylinder was replaced under warranty because the mechanic himself was not able to turn the key. yesterday, on 25 feb 2005, the same problem started up again. the dealership checked it out but we are off warranty, so we will have to pay for it ourselves. it is a very frustrating thought that after spending all that money, it may happen again in several month. after reading all the complaints of other focus owners regarding the same issue, we are very disappointed that ford does not make any allowances to get the problem fixed permanently. we have owned our cars usually up to 10 years or so and never had to replace an ignition cylinder before on any of them. *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 38430 miles.

(504) 485-2646. while the car was at the dealership, i searched the internet and learned from one website that there were at least 137 other people who had the same problem that i had. i found a second website with another list of people who were sharing their experiences of the faulty ignition cylinder lock. two people who posted onto the website mentioned the po5. i understood from them that the car could have been fixed for $24.58. the car had to be under six years old and under 75,000 miles. the staff at the bohn ford dealership was very considerate and understanding of my situation; however, when i requested a po5, they told me that while they were sure that i qualified , their office was not authorized to apply for a po5 at this time. my total bill came to $396.69 to drill out, code, and replace the ignition cylinder lock; and to cut, erase, and program two pat keys. the ignition cylinder lock problem on the ford focus can be traced at least as far back as 2001. therefore i urge you to begin a recall on the ignition cylinder lock. *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FAFP33P43W.

FORD FOCUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on May 24, 2004.FORD FOCUS 2003, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . i currently have a 2003 ford focus, which in general has been a pretty good car to me, if you take away the worries i've had about stopping! the brakes have squeaked since about 6 months after i got the vehicle (brand new) and when i took it in they said the pads and the rotors were gone. not surprised since i had grinding and squeaking, but yet amazed that the car was so new with so little miles and the brakes are already having an issue. when the car was finished, it didn't squeak or grind for a couple of days - but then went right back to grinding and squeaking. i talked to another girl with an 03 focus with the same issues. why can't all of us with the 2003 ford focus get together and complain together? i am still worried everytime i drive it that one day it won't stop or something. this should not be an issue, for i pay for this vehicle every month and it should be serviced correctly. i also encounter many ford engineers in dearborn michigan that say they have heard many reports such as this. can i ask why nothing has been done about it? they say that the newer models have better break systems... how does that help the 2003 model owners?????? something should be done about this. *jb.Ford Focus 2003 problem was reported in FLAT ROCK, MI.

FORD FOCUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on Oct 14, 2005.FORD FOCUS 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE . for the past 3 months i have had a problem with the engine of my 2003 ford focus zts stalling and sometimes cutting off completely. this happens under normal driving conditions and happens infrequently. it is very dangerous because the car can shut off while attempting to pull out across traffic or while in fast-moving traffic lanes. i have taken the car to my local ford dealer where they have experienced the problem first-hand but been unable to fix it. it has been there a total of 4 times, and this one with be the fifth. every time they have seemed to isolate the problem but it always seems to resurface within 48 hours. so far, the dealer has replaced: oxygen sensor, fuel pump, fuel modulator, and a transmission sensor. jiffy lube has also replaced the fuel filter. although none of these parts have been covered by my extended warranty, the dealer has been kind enough to compensate me for approximately the last three repairs from them. the car is still not fixed and i plan to take it back today. i am very frustrated because this is a car with 40,000 miles on it and rated very good by consumer reports. i have also checked several online forums and people are having the same problems but no one seems to know how to fix it. i feel like i have purchased a "lemon", but the nc law does not apply since i bought it in virginia. the virginia lemon law does not help either because it applies if the vehicle was serviced at the dealer it was originally purchased. i also feel like this vehicle should be part of a recall but ford has failed to acknowledge the problem (there was a recall on 2001 models for the same issue). any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated. *jb.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FAFP383X3W.

FORD FOCUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on Dec 26, 2005.FORD FOCUS 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION . starting approx. 7 month's after i purchased my brand new 2003 ford focus from jack byrne ford in mecanicville, ny i started to have problems with my car starting (feburary of 2004). i would place the key in the ignition and attempt to start the car. upon turning the key in the ignition - nothing would happen. the radio would turn on and so would the heat blowers and i would also get some dinging. but, the car failed to start. i have since brought the car to the dealership approx. 4 - 5 times. each time i had gone through an episode of the car not starting and then when it finally started i brought it to the dealership. the unfortunate part is i should have had it towed to the dealership so they can see first hand - how the ignition doesn't turn over. this has happened to me about 2 dozen times. each time ford would return the car to me and it would run for a couple weeks problem free. then sure enough it would start again. anyhow, this past weekend i was at a friends house with my two children - ages 6 and 3 month's. the car would not start. thank god i was at someone's house and i wasn't stuck out in my car in december in the cold with my children!! i appreciate that ford was kind enough to look at my vehicle and attempt to make a correction - but after researching this problem i feel like more should be done about this. i mean i bought a new car so i wouldn't have to deal with things like this. i would hate to feel like i wouldn't ever want to own a ford again. i think they need to rectify this situation and correct this problem. i would write a more aggressive letter - but at the moment the car is starting - so i am not feeling hostile!! please assist.*jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Ford Focus 2003 problem was reported in STILLWATER, NY.

FORD FOCUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on Dec 28, 2005.FORD FOCUS 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION . yesterday i was unable to start my car. i put in the key but it would not turn. there was no warning, no clicking, no difficulties starting my car in the past. after several hours we finally got the car started and took it into the shop. they told me that it was the tumbler and the cost of the repair would be $226. not only did the dealership charge for the damaged part and labor but also to run the diagnostic test in order to find out what was wrong. it cost $79.00 just to have the diagnostic test. i was also informed that this is a common problem in this car. our car only has 38,000 miles on it! my husband called ford customer service number in order to find out what ford was doing to rectify the situation. he was informed that at this time all they could offer was a 12 month warranty on the new part but would not pay for the repair. i have had time do some research and find that there are many complaints of a similar nature. there where quite a few that had to replace this part more than once and in a few cases twice in one year. i consider this a safety issue. this situation could leave individuals stranded. there is no warning! i consider myself lucky because i had just returned from a trip over the mountains for the holidays. i could have been stranded anywhere that i may have turned off my car. it would have cost me to have my car towed to a town with a ford dealership, let alone the cost of lodging and the expense of missing time off work. *nm.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 38000 miles.

FORD FOCUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on July 18, 2004.FORD FOCUS 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . my calipers have failed twice on my 2003 ford focus sedan. i bought it new in 2004 as a end of model year and have lots of brake and acceleration issues. my brake light comes on all the time when i am driving. the car won't accelerate and makes a loud revving noise. i have about 27k miles on it and the calipers failed at 10k and the second time at 22k. it was covered under warranty but the ford mechanics said they didn't know why it has happened. so the reason it fails has never been repaired but they replace the calipers. how they have failed to repair the brake lights from coming on was to replace the parking brake (but didn't fix the problems). the brakes make a squealing metallic noise and i was told that was 'normal' by the mechanics. after bringing it to the dealership over 10 times i was told by the mechanic to bring my problem to ford co. when i said the car is not safe and that i want it repaired or for them to buy it back they said i was 'doing' something to make the calipers fail. i was also told that they would not cover it under the warranty! *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 10453 miles.

FORD FOCUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on June 27, 2006.FORD FOCUS 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION . i have a 2003 ford focus, which has had several problems with components. as a manual transmission, the car has had several instances where the gears would not enter properly, even while fully engaging the clutch. then on 6/27/06, the ignition refused to move--wouldn't turn or anything. i had to hitch a ride to work from a co-worker, who went out of their way for me, then call winner ford (dover, de) to find out if the chip in my key had gone bad, or what. they informed me during the conversation that this was a very common problem, and that i was unfortunately 1 month outside of my warranty. i asked why it was not recalled or covered, as there were so many problems with this piece, and she had no answer. i had to get towed, which caused damage to my car, then was informed that this work would cost over 200$ to fix the problem, with only a 1 year warranty on the part. when asked, the tech who worked on my car informed me that the same piece would probably go out again, and again, over the course of my ownership. i am now seriously considering trading in this car. this is a very serious concern, for both safety, and the honesty of the dealers. a dealer on site explained to me that these cars had been having this problem for quite some time. i am not one to sue over spilt milk, but some notification would have been nice. i'm a graduate student, with a very large bill for these classes, i cannot afford to dump 300$ (after towing) into a car that holds no resale value, and will probably show many more issues throughout the rest of my time with ford. i have no intention of ever buying a ford again. *nm.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 26000 miles.

FORD FOCUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on Aug 12, 2006.FORD FOCUS 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION:SWITCH . my complaint is about the ignition cylinder locking up on my 2003 ford focus. the ignition locked up on me as i was leaving my mother's house august 12, 2006. when i inserted my key i found that it would not turn at all and the steering column had locked up as well. leaving me stranded, i called a tow truck who towed my car to the local ford dealership in which i purchased my car. the tow truck driver told me i was the fourth focus he had towed that week with this same problem. this happened on a friday night, so i had to wait until monday morning to find out what was wrong and get my car back. this left me stranded all weekend, which meant i missed work all weekend. i am very upset that i had to pay for this to be fixed on my car, especially knowing that ford has known about these faulty ignition switches for years. my main concern for this problem and reason i am so upset is that ford has said this is not a safety issue and will not issue a recall on the problem. i say to them that this is a safety problem. what if your car stalls out on train tracks and you can't get it to start up again? i think that would be a safety issue. what about if you live near the coast and you have to evacuate due to a hurricane or some other natural disaster? what if this problem happened to someone in new orleans during katrina? are you going to tell them it is not a safety issue? are they supposed to wait for the ford dealership to come and drill out the ignition cylinder before they can evacuate? i think that ford should be ashamed of themselves and they should do the right thing and issue a recall on this problem. i know i will never be buying another ford again. *jb.Mileage was 57038 miles.

FORD FOCUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on Jan 11, 2006.FORD FOCUS 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION:SWITCH . the key insertion cylinder (located next to the steering wheel): it will eventually lock into place and will not turn -- making it impossible to turn the key and drive. the safety hazard: when my 2003 ford focus lost power and needed to be restarted on the road, the key insertion cylinder locks into place, making it dangerous to turn the wheel -- because the steering wheel locks when the key cylinder is in the "key insert/begin" position. there are several horror stories, on the internet, about ford focus vehicle owners who have been stranded because of a faulty key ignition cylinder; or their car will not turn off because their key is stuck in the start position. ford dealerships will only cover this item if it warranted, but neglect the product design and refuse to consider a product recall. this typical item cost over $250 with labor. eventually, even with a new key cylinder, the problem will start to exist again, costing the consumer and creating a serious hazard for our citizens on american roadways. the problem is current in my vehicle and i am authorizing the national highway traffic safety administration to use my vehicle as an investigative tool. *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 42000 miles.

FORD FOCUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on Mar 22, 2007.FORD FOCUS 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with VISIBILITY:POWER WINDOW DEVICES AND CONTROLS . the driver side rear electric window of my 2003 ford focus ls has malfunctioned & failed to respond to switch control. motor function seemed to still be intact but the window didn't respond to the electrical switch on the door panel. this resulted in the window being stuck in a half down position but could be pulled back up manually with little resistance. 1 week later the passenger side rear window exhibited the exact same symptoms. after calling a few local dealerships/repair shops, i was informed that the window(s) had probably come "off track" but they could not be certain without inspection. i received an estimate of $200 just to look at the problem, the estimate did not include any additional fee's that may incur thereafter. i contacted triumph auto glass to repair the problem and was told by the technician that this is a very frequent problem with the ford focus model & that he has ran into this problem several times in recent months. he wasn't able to repair the problem at the time, but he was able to identify the problem as he had ran across it numerous times. he stated that both regulators for the window motor's had failed & estimated the repair cost to between $500-$600.00 ! i was not able to afford that expenditure at this time & opted to glue both back windows shut in the up position. so now i have essentially no rear windows (at least windows that function) & there is damage to the carpet & upholstery from the elements. not to mention the fear of possibly having the car broken into or stolen. i did wish to make you aware of this issue as it seems to be quite frequent. i have checked your site & several others for the ford focus & was unable to find any recalls or bulletins for this problem. but it's a big problem & a serious safety issue that needs to be addressed by ford and i am obviously not the only one affected by this mechanical failure. thank you for time and attention to this matter. sincerely, mark williams .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 66051 miles.

FORD FOCUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on Mar 25, 2007.FORD FOCUS 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . i have a 2003 ford focus that i bought brand new and drove off the lot with 60 miles on it. not long after we purchased the car, it started to act as though the transmission was slipping when changing gears. we have always kept up on the recommended maintenance and no one has ever been able to find a problem with the car. about 3 weeks ago we were driving around the neighborhood, not on a busy street thank goodness, when the car shifted very hard as we slowed down for a stop sign. when we attempted to begin driving again, the car would not shift out of first gear. we promptly took it to a transmission shop where they have been working on it for nearly 3 weeks. they have pulled the transmission out to rebuild it twice and have still not found what is causing the problem. the mechanics have even taken it over to the local ford dealership and they cannot figure it out. i now have a 4 year old car with 53000 miles on it that does not run. if that had happened while we were driving on the highway we certainly would have been hit by a car behind us. this is not normal wear and tear, there is a serious problem with the transmission or the computer system. if this car ever actually gets fixed, i will certainly not feel safe driving it as the performance of the car is unreliable and there is no telling when it will suddenly quit working again. *tr.Mileage was 53000 miles.

Ford Focus 2003 Equipment Review #10193884

FORD FOCUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on June 10, 2007.FORD FOCUS 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with EQUIPMENT . i had no event that lead to the failure of the (ignition) in my 2003 ford focus zx3. i was on my way to work at 10:30 p.m. and i stopped to put air in my tires at a local gas station. when i got back in to my vehicle i put the key in the ignition and tried to turn the ignition over but it would not move. i turned the steering wheel while trying to turn the key because i thought maybe the steering wheel locked up and yet nothing happend. i walked a mile back home and got my spare key and returned to my vehicle and tried it again and it to failed to turn the ignition. i had the vehicle towed to a local repair shop and i had to miss work that evening. it ended up costing me $336.28 to repair the ignition switch/tumbler. i looked online for other ford focus owners who have had the same problem and found over 30,000 other owners just on one website that have had the same problem with there ignition. i found plenty of people that have had to replace the ignition more then two to three times in there ford focus. this is a problem that ford denies having on there ford focus. the ford focus ignition is made in germany by a company called huf. the ford focus is the only ford vehicle that has the huf ignition used in it. that is very ironic considering that the only ford vehicle with numerous ignition problems is the ford focus. ford needs to correct this problem at once. ford also goes on to state that this is not a safety issue. i beg to differ, for just one example out of many that i could describe, i live in las vegas where the heat can reach over 110 everyday of the week in the summer. if the ignition broke while i was on the side of the road any where outside of las vegas i could be stranded and if i had no water i could easily die within hours. this is a safety issue and i could list a number of saftey problems that could come from this ignition problem..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 32765 miles.

FORD FOCUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on June 22, 2007.FORD FOCUS 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with STEERING:COLUMN . i purchased my 2003 ford focus zx3 just over a year ago and have recently had trouble with the steering wheel locking up. after jerking the wheel around a bit i've always been able to get it to start until today. but today when i went to get in my car and go to work no amount of jerking or twisting would get my key to turn and my car to start. before calling for a tow i decided to check for info on like and what do i find? that this problem has been going on in the zx3 since 2000! and nothing is being done about it! so now i'm going to have to drop over $300 on a fix for my car and from what i read i'll probably have to do the same thing again next year. why is the being allowed to go on? if ford cares so little about the people that drive their cars that they can't find a long term fix to a well documented problem than you can be sure that this will be the last ford i purchase. *tr .Ford Focus 2003 problem was reported in ROYAL OAK, MI.

FORD FOCUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on July 05, 2007.FORD FOCUS 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION:ANTI-THEFT CONTROLLER . (1)from the time i bought the car 1-1/2 years ago, the ignition switch would sometimes freeze, disabling the car from being started. at first, i just had to turn the wheel in the car and then the ignition switch would work. (2)about a month ago, the ignition switch completely froze. i had to have the car towed to my home. i was told by one of the tow truck men who came to tow my car that this ignition switch was a factory defect in almost every american-made car. (3)i wrote to ford in detroit and filed a complaint. they did not even grace my complaint with a response. i then got an estimate of the cost to repair from the service director at capistrano ford. he told me it would be $260 to $280. i had to wait until this month as i am on social security disability income and had already allocated my money going out for june. on july 3 i was finally able to have my car towed to the dealer. when i spoke to the service manager, he informed me that i was quoted wrong on the cost of repair and that it would be $403 to repair. i complained, reached the director of the service department again and told him of my complaint regarding the higher pricer. the service director told me he could knock off $70 of the bill by taking the cost out of his technician's hide. i disputed that as being unfair, and told him that ford (in detroit) should be paying for this, not his technician. he told me he would try to knock off even more of the cost. later in the afternoon, the service manager called to tell me my car was ready. when asked how much the charges were, he told me "$50 bucks!" he told me they had decided to charge the service to ford in detroit and did the work as a courtesy service with a $50 deductible. again, this ignition switch is known by tow truck people to be a factory defective part in just about every american-made car. my car is only 4 years old and has less than 25,000 miles on it. please recall this ignition switch on every american-made car. *tr.Mileage was 24282 miles.

(i will bring it in hand when i have the car serviced in 2 days.) meanwhile, another person at the service desk hinted that i may be able to tap it with a hammer so that it will turn and could drive to the dealer and not have to be towed. sure enough, a tap of the hammer allowed me to turn the key. i will leave the key in the ignition through the weekend and am struggling with the thought that a replacement from ford will be another defective part. whether my warranty covers it or not, i don't want another bad ignition switch! from all that i have read, it seems that a locksmith would replace it with a better quality device than ford dealers service departments are using. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Ford Focus 2003 problem was reported in CENTERVILLE, MA.

Ford Focus 2003 Electrical System Ignition Review #10207290

FORD FOCUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on Oct 27, 2007.FORD FOCUS 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION . after fueling, my daughter tried to start the car (2003 ford focus wagon), but the key would not turn. we got the car to the dealership where we purchased it, and the key cylinder had to be replaced by a locksmith. the total cost of the repair, plus the towing, cost over $200.00. meanwhile my daughter's car was stuck at the gas pump, where other customers wanted to fuel, but could not do so. i'm glad my daughter had not run over a nail, like i did the other day, having to pull over to the side of a busy interstate highway, and then have this problem occur. depending on where this kind of thing happens, this could be a very serious safety concern. not only with the vehicle, but with the place the vehicle is stranded when it occurs. i have found out that ford has known for quite some time about this problem, but they refuse to recall cars to fix this problem, and continue to use this defective part in their ford focus vehicles. the extended warranty i bought was the most expensive one, and yet it covers everything but the ignition switch, it seems. unless ford decides to reimburse me, i will never purchase another ford product. this is the fourth ford focus we have purchased. if i don't find satisfaction with this problem, it will certainly be the last. on top of all of that, my focus has had squealing brakes since the day i bought it, and ford has refused to repair this, as well, saying that it's "normal." no way this noise is normal. i'm fed up with ford at the moment. *tr.Ford Focus 2003 problem was reported in GRAY, GA.

FORD FOCUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on Sept 09, 2008.FORD FOCUS 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION . i own a 2003 ford focus and had to spend $360 to have my ignition cylinder replaced as my steering wheel had locked and the key unable to turn and start the car when the car had just worked fine the previous day. luckily, it was still warm outside and i was not stranded in a remote place in a storm or in winter where harm could befall someone. i couldn't figure out what was wrong or what i needed to do, but i couldn't unlock the steering wheel. i even called the ford company who stated there was not anything they could do except that it should be taken to a dealer. i called a ford dealership whose service director did not seem surprised by what was wrong with my steering wheel, even saying that probably the ignition cylinder would need to be replaced and that the part would usually cost $350-400 to repair. he said that he had replaced quite a few for the focus. then i went online and found out that many people have had this same problem, over and over again, some having replaced this one part 4-5 times. for some reason this part has never been recalled even though it is a serious engineering flaw with possible serious ramifications in stranding people unexpectedly and without warning. something should be done and so i am turning to you to make the ford company own up to their design flaw concerning its car, the ford focus concerning its ignition cylinder. when the locksmith came and replaced the cylinder he demonstrated why the part was defective. it has something to do with the tumbler mechanism in the cylinder. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 66000 miles.
