How long.....

Alright plan to buy an 04 zx3 tomorrow with 35k miles... I have owned nothing but imports.... Cept when I was sixteen had a gmc truck... I have loved the imports till i wrecked my last one without full coverage insurance and now I have to buy another car and that one i am still pay on.... Anyways so this is how I have landed here... The car is base everything 5spd... I dont know if there is a real answer to my question its more of opinions and personal experiences....

How many miles can I expect this to run without major issues if I do not run it into the ground?

I dont know anyone with a focus and the few that I have known to have one didnt treat theres very well and just one day it was gone... Never put much thought into it...

If I could get some opinions I would be very happy....

Thanks in advance,
Jon

No reason it couldn't go 150k miles with proper care and some reasonable repairs here and there.

Should last you fairly well as long as you take good care of it, do all the regular maintenance.

If it's got the 2.3 liter engine, so much the better.

dont know if I will be owning that one after all.... Everything ran great.... Felt comfortable... After the test drive the sales guy looks on the window and says huh no ac..... Oklahoma summers get too hot for that.... Kinda got lucky since it was around freezing that day and last thing on my mind was to turn on the ac.... I hadnt even looked to see if it had one... Its oklahoma dont all of them? No obviously not... It came from VA another place that gets hot so was quite suprised and lucky... I would have bought the car and then in two months when it started to warm up would be wondering why the ac is not working then I would look under the hood and wow there are not even parts to an ac in there... Would probably figure the rest out shortly....
