Focus 4-cyl

  • 12,000 miles
2009 Ford Focus SE. Bought new July 2009. Multiple problems with power door locks not unlocking from inside/outside w/key, remote, handles. Warranty work, 3 times in past one (1) year on door locks. Latest 7/15/11. Safety concerns of being trapped in vehicle. Constantly being told by Ford techs. Road dust causing malfunction. Have owned and driven many other makes/models of Ford cars/trucks w/ power locks on gravel roads without problems. Only this car has this problem. 1st. Front passenger door had lock assembly replaced.wouldn't unlock inside or outside. 2nd. Left back wouldn't unlock inside or outside. Door lock adjusted by Ford tech. So far both working ok. 3rd. Trapped outside car. Finally unlocked w/ remote after many attempts. Key in outer lock wouldn't unlock door. Now it's the driver door that has to have the lock assembly replaced and is scheduled to have this done.also have complaint of original new tires (hankook P195/60/R15) wearing out and had to replace at 21,000 miles on 7/09/11. Ps. tire pressure sensor is a useless device.
