Focus 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,000 miles
Purchased 2003 Ford Focus in September, 2003. There was not even 3,000 miles on this car. My husband drove it 2 blocks to the store on Saturday, February 7, 2004, went into the store to get one item and only in the store 5 minutes, came out and my car was on fire under the hood of the car.
