The front rotors were shot on my 2002 ZX3 after 30K miles, but the chinese replacement rotors lasted another 100K miles.

All 4 wheel bearings, front rotors, rear drums replaced at 137K miles due to wear.

The transmission developed synchro issues around 75K miles, I had a used replacement transmission installed along with new clutch/pressure plate/etc. At 138K miles, bearing in transmission started to fail. Replacement cost was close to remaining market value of the car, so it became a trade-in.

I still recommend the Ford Focus as a good buy to anyone looking for a reliable new or used car.
