My focus is an 2003, love the wee car great to drive and would like to keep it a good while longer as ive spent a good few pound on it and its goin great.
What bugs me is the amount of bubbling paint and rust popping up in various places. A new bit on the front wing, along the bottom of the doors and under the rear arches is coming away very badly.
Is the focus just known for this or what, cos most of my previous cars have been older and they dont rust this bad?

Have something to contribute?

The focus is generally good for lack of corrosion.
Maybe you've just been unlucky.?
