hey guys, im very interested in purchasing a used Zx3. there are a few around my neiborhood that im looking at, and the prices are right. the only thing im not sure of is the life expectantcy of the zetec engine? I dont plan on many engine mods past the usual intake, exhaust, ect. and i am very religious about oil changes and the like. I cant really afford to be buying another car any time soon (college student) and i wanna know if this is a wise purchase for me!?!

thanx for any help...

On Focus, the problem is not from engine but from other parts like wheel bearing, DEFP, Fuel pump, TPS, tranny. Those are some of the common on Focus.

Don't get me wrong, focus is a good car and I have 80k miles on it and the only real problem I have fixed is the fuel pump. But if ur going to get one, see if you can get late 01 model. And make sure you get one with SOME warrenty left and make sure all the recall have been done.
