Bought this 06 Focus when it was 1 yr/50,000km old ... so, I've owned it 3 yrs and put 60,000km on it ...

-alternator (was just past 60k so Ford pitched in)
-driver's door lock actuator x 2 (both times under warranty)
- now PS pump ... which didn't solve the problem ... it's been in the shop for 3 days now, and they've finally figured out that the reservoir has become restricted and is stopping the fluid from flowing ... this one was a pain to solve!!
-front pads & rotors @ about 100km

Nothing terribly major ... BUT ... my last 2 cars were both VW's ... first one got hit @ 275k, last one was gonna cost me some money @ 245k so I sold it. Neither one ever left me stranded and never cost me more than $400 on a single repair ... somehow, I don't think I'll be able to say the same about this Focus. I like it fine, but it ain't no Vee-Dub. As long as it lasts me another year or so, and I can save up my pocket money for an 09 Evo!!!
