2006 Ford Focus Diesel Manual Hatchback by not too happy • 4th October 2012
Bought a 2006 1.6 tdci focus in january 12. Had quite a few problems with it. Spent approx £500 in 9 months and has been very hard on diesel, which I wasn't expecting. Had to get a new starter motor a few weeks ago and its now running better and is definitely easier on fuel (no idea why a new starter motor would make it run better though). Up until this I could happily have taken a box of matches and a gallon of petrol to it, just to be shot of it, but I'm slightly happier now its running better. Would think very carefully before buying another Ford.... I'm basing the review on the first 9 months experience.. Maybe in another few months if it keeps going as well as it now the review would be a lot higher..
