Car Stall problem #4
The vehicle having this issue was a 2000 Ford Focus. Twice since we purchased this car, it has stalled. Once at start-up, and once entering a busy 4-lane road. Both incidents occurred after the car had sat turned off for 30 minutes following being driven at high speeds (45-65 mph) for at least 1 hour. Both times the car ran rough following the stall. The car has been in the shop twice, but the mechanics can't find a problem. Talking on the phone, one representative told me that Ford has been having trouble with gasoline additives causing the Focus to stall, but when I mentioned it at the dealership, everyone denied knowledge of this statement. While I was at the shop, another Focus owner reported the same problems. This car was bought so that we had a safe and reliable vehicle, it has been neither. This issue happened on 03/24/00.

Car Stall problem #6

Car Stall problem #7
The car was a 2000 Ford Focus. The VIN of the problem Focus is 3FAFP3131Y_. This engine problem is constant since the time I bought it. Engine vibrates from slight to severe when at an idle. Sometimes when coming to a stop it threatens to stall, but does not, but vibrates and shudders constantly. I've taken it several times to the dealer and no help or solutions have been made. I'm afraid that this will turn into a safety hazard for me and other drivers, because it is getting worse and could end up stalling.
Car Stall problem #8
The vehicle is a 2000 Ford Focus. Car stalls out multiple times per day while driving, causing the power stearing to go out and all of the dash lights to go on, scared for my safety. Contacted saleperson and dealership owner with no help offered by them. It was May. 2, 2000 when this car stall issue occurred.
Car Stall problem #9
The vehicle involved is a 2000 Ford Focus. Vehicle has stalled 9 times and has been in for repair, but Ford is unable and unwilling to detect the problem. They cannot "duplicate" the stalling therefore it does not exist. Although I have stalled on the interstate, while driving 70 mph and on city streets. I refuse to take my child in the car with me because I am scared we will be rear ended. I have contacted the az atty general's office and was told that Ford refused to mediate the situation and the stalling problem does not exist. The atty generals office stated their workload is too heavy to enforce the az lemon law and I would have to hire an atty. As a single parent I cannot afford to hire an atty and still pay my car payments, which Ford expects me to do, yet they will not honor their product and admit this car has a problem. I bought a new car so that I wouldn't have the repair cost of a used vehicle and I bought a Ford because they had been in business for a long time and I thought they were safe and realiable. The failure date was Tuesday, Aug. 1, 2000.

Car Stall problem #16
The car involved was a 2000 Ford Focus. The first time that this happened I was traveling at 50mph. My car began to lose power and become hard to control, then it stalled leaving my coasting trying to find a safe place to pull over. I took my car into the dealer and they replaced the fuel pump and several other parts. The second time it happened I was again traveling at 50mph, when again I lost power to the car and was left coasting. I believe that this is a serious problem and a very unsafe problem when you have a car with power steering and you loose power it makes it eatremely hard to control the vehicle as well as a car that just coasts. I would like to see something done about this serious defect in these cars. This issue happened on 07/19/01.
