Focus loyalty

How long do you plan on keeping the focus, in terms of # of years and mileage?

Myself, at least till 2010, so another 3 years minimum...roughly when it hits the 100K miles mark

I say another 2 to 3 years, due to the fact that after three years i doubt i'll find a focus model with low miles that i would like. I dislike the styling of the new focus'. If Ford were to come out with another hatch that looked good, i'm all in. Until then, i'll have to make this svt last...

I am going to try and keep mine till it is paid off. February 2012. I am way over my head on this one. I bought it February 2006, and I still have less then 7,000 miles on it. I also have a 2002 Ranger XLT and a 2003 Honda VTX 1800 "C" Motorcycle. I ride to bike more than I drive either car or truck put together. I was at a gas station the other day. When I came out, a guy driving a Lexus SUV told me loved the wheels I had put on it. He thought it was a BMW when he first drove up.

I'll be keeping mine for a while. There's not much out there that interest me enough to get rid of it.

I'll keep mine for 5 years or less. My car is only worth $2,000 right now, and I still have 3 more years to pay on it. I want to get as much for it as I can.
