Haynes have a very high reputation and I have bought two in recent months. Whereas the technical info is quite good, I have found several points not even covered; "remove this by releasing the two screws on the back" - no screws evident and no sign of how this unit is secured...
Another disappointment is the paper and print quality. I spilt some coffee and the print practically ran off the page rendering it pracically unreadable. In another section I inserted "Post-It" notes in the pages to keep my places, (I was using info on both electrical chapter and internal fixtures), when the "Post-It" notes were peeled off they also lifted the print; not completely but it shows where economies have been made.
So beware, only use the book indoors, no coffee breaks and plain paper page markers...
On balance though, an invaluable help to the home mechanic reluctant to pay high labour charges at some garages for relatively simple tasks.

Over the years I have purchased many Haynes manuals and been very satisfied with them, however, after this one, never again. The paper on which it was printed was of a very poor quality and rather yellow which combined with poor printing quality, made the text, and more importantly, the diagram's, very difficult to see. It was so bad that I e-mailed the publishers with my concerns. The reply I received confirmed the problem, they explained that some years ago they needed to reduce the cost of production and two options were considered. Firstly keeping the good quality white paper but increasing the price of the manual, or secondly, (the option that was adopted), using poor quality paper. He went on to say that they have recently reviewed the decision and returned to the better quality paper.

While his reply addressed my question, there was no offer of an apology, I would certainly never buy one of their manuals again, and while their review of the paper quality may in the long term result in manuals that are of a reasonable quality, because of current stocks held combined with production times, it could be many years before improvements are seen by those buying the publications.

Haynes as always cover everything very clearly in detail, but it is a shame that the paper quality has reduced over the years.

I dont do much in the way of diy car maintenance these days, but Ive always found the Haynes manuals indispensable when it comes to simpler jobs such as brake maintenance and the replacement of external fittings such as lamps and body trim. So I had to have the Haynes for my new(ish) Focus. As always, terrifically informative, though I have to add that with advancing age my eyesight has deteriorated and some of the step by step photographs are far from clear for someone who doesnt have the benefit of 20/20. I think this is something Haynes should be working on.
Very competitive pricing on Amazon, especially in comparison to that charged by the major motoring accessories stores.

Having recently bought a second-hand Ford Focus 2 litre automatic, first registered in New Zealand in 2009, I bought the Haynes manual to better acquaint myself with this vehicle's workings. This publication appears to give a thorough explanation of the various systems and how the owner-driver can best maintain the vehicle safely and economically.

I particularly like Haynes' system of grading the levels of skill and difficulty involved in performing these tasks. However I have real reservations about Haynes producing this manual on such poor paper which renders many of the photos indistinct. Earlier manuals were printed on quality paper which highlighted photographic detail. There is also a problem with the chapter on automatic transmissions. This chapter describes a model of automatic transmission which is not fitted to my Focus. Haynes describes an automatic transmission which incorporates an overdrive which can be selected by the driver. The transmission in my Focus has a manual over-ride function for all the four gears. Yet some of the illustrations in Haynes feature this over-ride function. Confusing; you bet!

I purchased the manual as a present for my husband as we have recently bought a 2009 Ford Focus. He has had Haynes manuals for each of his previous cars and finds them invaluable. This manual - although printed on thinner, poorer quality paper; presumably to keep costs down - is also proving invaluable and he is very pleased with it.

Excellent manual. Contains virtually everything you need to know about your Focus including wiring diagrams. It does not cover the ST or RS engines.
