2003 SVT Focus with over 100k. Nothing but minor problems.

IMRC broke, drove without it for a few years then took it apart and fixed it with a little epoxy. Cost: Free

There was a leak somewhere in the cooling system about a year ago. Fixed with some radiator stop-leak. Cost: ~$5

Switch to open the hatch broke. Replacement from ebay: $13

Driver's side sway-bar end link died. Replacement cost: $52

Total cost: $70

Not bad for 5 1/2 years of ownership. Of course I saved a lot by doing labor myself
