Hey all,
I was thinking the other day that as I rack up the miles on my car and approach 30K. What the highest amount of milage someone has been able to get out of a focus? Yours or other people's foci included...

This is also tremendously interesting to me, as, by my depreciation chart (I'm waiting until I can buy one for under $2,000), I'll probably be driving Foci from 150,000 to around 200,000 miles.

stickshifter is putting miles on at an alarming rate. I don't think he's broken 50 yet, but his car is two months old

Mine is 2 months old, 3400 miles and has been in for the AC CD Player Paint and a broken Seat Belt. Minor things, but enough to make me nervous. Husband said last night it's ok to trade it in and take the loss ($) just from hearing about all the problems they have. (Mazda Protege5 is just calling my name!!)

The MP5 is a great car. Id love to get one. but what problems are you talking about. Mine is an early 2000. I went thru about 10 recalls and new cylander head design. I was worried about it too but 88K miles or great driving has put me at ease. you are still way under warrenty and with no sign of mechanical trouble, I wonder what you are fretting about.
I wouldnt take a loss unless the car left me stranded more than once. thats just me though.

82,368 since December 4, 2000, (I bought it with 14 miles on the OD)
Mechanical repairs: fuel pump, ECU, EGR valve
Cosmetic repairs: Front & rear bumpers, drivers door
All recalls are done & up to date. Original brakes & clutch.
Still running strong with no signs of wear or "tiredness". Getting around 28-29 mpg on average.

I'm only at 42k miles here but 30k of those miles have been at 5-7psi with the dreaded SFMS(5th injector) as my only tuning/fuel management. It's been driven very hard. Been on the rev limiter in 1st and 2nd gear many times(auto-x).

Only problems so far: Fuel pump and DPFE sensor. Both replaced by Ford with the turbo still on the car.

Ive put on 33,000 miles in 14 months with no major problems,
a few little ones like a broken catalitic converter and the ignition locked up, but other than that it seems preety reliable.
