I know Ford recommends 7500 miles oil change for a 2009 Focus. I own one. However, I learned over two years ago that some '09 Focus owners were having problems with their tires wearing unevenly. I asked my dealer's Service Manager about the tire rotaion. He recommended every 5000. So, every 5000 miles I have the oil change AND tires rotated. In the past I have used Pennzoil. On my Focus I am staying with the Ford blended oil and Ford Oil Filter. I have just about 26000 miles on my Focus. It seems to running pretty good.
