Hi, My name is Chris. I have a 2000 Ford Focus Se. My Brake disc heats a little after
about 5 minutes of slow driving. Please let me know if this is a problem or not.

they will get hot to the touch with very little braking. if the wheels will spin fairly easily when jacked up, you're probably ok. if they feel restricted in their turning you will need to do some further investigation.
