well, last night I hit 150,000... my car let me know it too..

so i was gitty because i got my car to 150,000 with blowing it up! stock clutch and everything. i've generally prided myself on the fact that i haven't had to change any parts. with the exception of my alternator... all the time due to my amp. so it's my fault

well i'll be damned if my car didn't roll over to 150,000 miles last night and the alternator started squeeling big time! LOL

one of the bearings in the alternator seized, but it didn't stop producing power or anything, so i figured F it i'll drive home. i got home no problem at all. sooo now i'm gonna go change my alternator

what a PITA. i guess this time i'll actually take pictures for a how too.

150k miles is a big feat for a Focus? My 97 mustang made it to 150k no prob... and I know for a corolla or a civic 150k is considered the "middle life" of the car lol.

I sure my Focus lasts well past 150k into the 200k like a car these days should. Ford engineers can't let the civics and their tremendous life span show them up!
