Quality of brakes and water pump on 2003?

I know that the water pump and brakes were serious problems on previous year foci. Were these problems fixed by model year 2003 or are they still using the same old parts that were so prone to failure?
Thanks, Ragtopgeek

Don't know about that. Wife has a 2001 wagon with 75000 KM and haven't replaced either. Murray
