: One and only owners
03-21-2009, 12:30 AM
Well i am the one and owner of my car, bought it new from the dealer and still have it today. So i was thinking how many other foci owners are one and only owners? [drinking]
now it is obvious that if you have a 08 or 09 your pretty much going to be the one and only owner. i want to know about those of you who have a 06 or older. [smackbum]
name off the type and year of focus, and if you would ever sell it. [thumb]
2001 Sedan LX
I never want to sell my car, ever.

2002 ZX3, drove it off the lot of 32 Ford with only 10 miles, 9 of which I put on it test driving it. I will drive this thing until it drops or falls apart which ever comes first. Only 63000 miles on the clock too so I think it will last me awhile at least I hope it does.

You can count me in this one! We bought my 06 new from the dealer. I put the second mile on it test driving it. Its now got 71k miles on it too! Not all driven by me, some by my parents. But a lot by me.
Mines an 06 ZX3 SE, 5 speed, with extra options... Power everything, cruise control, Street Appearance Package, sunroof, leather steering wheel (now my added options) 09 EAP lookalike rims, heated seats, new stereo, st gauge cluster, and some more small things.
And would I sell it? Yes, if the right car came along. Wish it was a sedan foci, never was a hatch lover. Guess I have to get used to it. At least its not bone stock...

Bought my 2001 ZTS new from a dealer. Now with 110K miles.
Will I ever sell it? Most likely not... Mostly because it won't sell for much money, but it still runs pretty well as a daily driver. Also, out of the 4 cars in this family, this is the only 4-door car so it comes pretty handy at times.

Still got mine, bought it in 04. Plan on driving it till I have enough money to get myself a new much better ride. Even if I get a job soon I may still wait a few years to save up money, not to mention turn 25 so insurance goes way down. Unfortunatly if my focus keeps having problems over and over I might have to ditch it :(. I hate my car, but I love it and would drive it into the grave if I could.

my is a 06' SES ZX4 w/S.A.P. i will not sell it. once its payed off im thinking of getting ford flex
03-21-2009, 05:12 PM
the amount of money i'd get for it by selling isnt much, plus what i spend to keep it is so little.
03-21-2009, 05:26 PM
Im the only one with an 2.3 Stroker Turbo engine in a SVT [:D]

03-22-2009, 03:49 PM
Picked it up in Jan of 03, zx5. It just passed 170k miles and hope to see more. It's my DD of 100 miles. I'll keep it until I can't fix it or just doesn't make sense to fix.
03-22-2009, 09:28 PM
^ I really hope mine keeps running that long!!!!!
03-22-2009, 10:40 PM
I am the original owner of a 2003 Black ZX3. I bought it new and don't plan on selling it. I put a lot of work into it and it still is running strong with 98,000 on the OD. I love it. I'll drive it until it won't run any longer or it's too costly to keep up. Since it's now a second car for myself, it'll probably be on the road another decade hopefully.
03-22-2009, 10:58 PM
eh, wish I could have bought mine new.... I'm just like MLB..... I just can't afford it. Of course..... I did just turn 17 yesterday.... hahaha.
Eh, my brother bought the '03 foci sedan that is now mine 2 years ago. It had about 50k on it and yesterday the clocked turned 98k. haha. It's definitely been driving since I've had it. LOVE IT TO DEATH. I WILL DRIVE THIS THING FOREVER!!!! AHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!
03-23-2009, 07:46 AM
Bought mine on March 15, 2008. 38,000 miles on the odo. I hope to have it for many years to come.

Bought my ZX3 new off the lot on Sept 14, 2001... It was "patriotic" [thumb]to support the US economy after 9/11.
Of course the NEXT WEEK, Ford offered 0.0% financing! [smackbum][smackbum][smackbum]
I'm currently at 105k miles. Perfect condition, never wrecked, never any problems, so I'll probably drive it until the wheels falls off..... [driving]

Got my 07 in March of 07 with 14 miles on the odometer (10 of which were put on during the test drive). Now, it's got almost 48k miles on it. It's been through a lot - one major accident that resulted in $10k worth of body and suspension work back in December of 08, several major road trips.
If you asked me in the first year of owning this car if I'd ever sell it - the answer would be yes. I absolutely hated this car. It was constantly in the shop and disappointed me. In the second year I put a wicked number of miles on the car, had the wreck, and came to see the car as a family member and not just a car.
I'm planning to hang onto it as long as is feasible. Even if I move on to something different as my DD, I think I'll still hang on to my focus. It brings a smile to my face every time I drive it. It's only two years old, but it's got many more years, miles, and smiles ahead of it.

04-11-2009, 11:00 AM

04-11-2009, 12:23 PM

04-11-2009, 10:37 PM
'04 LX. Most likely won't sell it since the resale value is not worth it to me.
