The Ford Focus can refer to two different model cars: one released in North America and another released in various locations in the rest of the world. Owners of the Ford Focus have a number of resources available to help them maintain their cars in good, running condition. Everything from basic issues like how to turn on the windshield wipers to more serious questions, like how often the Ford Focus needs to be brought in for maintenance, can be found at these official Ford Focus technical resources.

Owner's Manual

Focus Planet's owners manual archive has links to manuals for the various models of the Ford Focus in Adobe's pdf format. For an owner who cannot figure out how part of the car is supposed to function, the owner's manual should be the first stop. The owner's manual also contains information on basic maintenance and how to report problems or defects to Ford Motors. The owner's manual archive also has warranty information in case the original papers have been misplaced and a recommended maintenance schedule is due. The checklist format of the recommended maintenance schedule is especially handy since it ensures that you won't overlook anything.

Ford U.K.

The Ford Focus U.K. site focuses on the internationally released model. This site is geared toward prospective buyers and has a great deal of information on the Ford Focus' features. This site highlights features like the tire deflation detection system, which monitors the air pressure in each tire and alerts the driver if there is a potential problem. Standard specifications like gas mileage and interior equipment are also listed so that someone who is thinking about buying a Ford Focus can easily compare it to other cars. In addition to the standard Ford Focus, which comes in three different packages, the Ford U.K. site has information on the Ford Focus Sport, which has more high-tech options, and the Ford Focus ECOnetic, an environmentally friendly model that boasts 74.2 miles per gallon.

Owner's Club

For someone looking for more than technical stats, but who don't necessarily want to take their mechanic's word for what is wrong with their Focus, the Ford Focus Owner's Club is a great place to find information. In addition to the owner's forum, the club has links to all matters of car information, pages with detailed technical specs and pricing information on different Ford Focus models. For U.K. owners who are worried about passing the mechanical and emissions test required every three years, the Ford Focus Owner's Club has a tutorial to prepare you for the ins and outs of the testing process.
