I have a 2008 Ford Focus with just over 50,000 miles that keeps stalling while driving and then won't start. It started at 30,000 miles. I have had to have it towed twice to the dealership and drove it in a third time. They can't find anything wrong with it. I also have the problem with the ignition locking up. The car isn't even paid for yet and now I have to pay for towing even though it's covered under warranty, because they can't find what is wrong. The dealership suggest replacing many different parts because it MAY be what is wrong. I got onto a couple of blogs about this and find it is an ongoing problem with the Focus. Thousands of people have had this happen and have had many parts replaced (at considerable expense) only to find it did not help. Ford seems to know there is a problem but are not doing anything about it. My concern is that I have been stranded several times already. I have a 4 year old car that is undependable. It has caused me hardship as I need to make sure I have a backup plan just to go to the store as I never know when I will be sitting on the side of the road broke down. It has caused a hardship that I have to find alternate transportation while this car is back in the shop. Not to mention now the towing fees. My hope is that Ford will fix this car before it's too late and I have an accident due to the car quitting while I am on the highway.
