115-120. I don't drive above 110 much because the car is geared so low. It gets really slow at speeds that high.

Yipes. I'm a wimp-- I don't think that I would even try to go above 90, in the Focus or any car for that matter!

Don't get me wrong-- there is nothing like zooming down an empty highway but w/ insurance as high as it is in NJ... Well, let's just say that I am mightly impressed by you folks!
