Either way, 7,700 miles is nothing...I did that in the first 3 months of ownership. Many of the people that are having big problems have also had their car 20k, 30k, or 40k miles already. Some problems immediately manifest themselves, while some hold out for quite awhile. We're just talking about our experiences.

But I hope for your sake (WizeGuyDezignz) that your clutch is perfect and that never have to go through this.
Right, and couldn't any make or model have an issue at 25k miles, 40k miles, etc? Does every single Focus have a problem at those mileages? If so, you would hear more about it than on a Focus forum.

My transmission could go out tomorrow for all I know. Or maybe it will be fine for over 100k miles. Who knows is the point that I'm getting at.

But yes, I hope I never have to go through it!
