Purchased As New
I purchased a brand new 2008 Ford Focus. A few months later I was involved in a collision. The air bags AND the seatbelts failed to work!!!! The two most important things had manufacturer defects. If you also bought this same vehicle.. I would suggest taking it in and having it tested. You'd hate to be involved in a serious collision only to find out the hard way that your seatbelts didn't lock and your air bags didn't deploy. And good luck getting Ford to take responsibility for their defective vehicle that they sell you. Here's an exact quote of what the Ford manufacturer told me... "I'm sorry that you were in a bad accident and that your seatbelts and airbags didn't work, but I can't hep you." Thats the service you get. They only care to take responsibility for their defects if you are killed. I highly suggest you do NOT purchase this vehicle. If the two most important things (seatbelts and airbags) are defective.. think of everything else that can be wrong. They at least need to do a recall. This same defect could be in many many of the new Focuses but no one will know until they crash.
