It seems pretty common for us Focus guys to move on to Mazdas. Nice ride.

almost went with a speed but i only had 12,500 to spend and wanted to go as new as possible with the mazda. ive allways wanted a mazda 3 or speed3 and i finally got one. heres the details bout my focus:
DPFE has failed
O2 failed after every 8k miles needs replacing, idk why
car constantly burns oil and goes from lean to rich all the time never stoich and 80 percent rich.
serpentine belt needs replacing.
oil and coolant are mixing. all radiator hoses are fried. water pump is near toast. all four tires are bald. the worst of them all has been the brakes. since i bought the car in 06 ive had brake sticking issues. ive had everything you can thnk of brake wise replaced 2 yrs ago. and jsut recently bout 2 months ago here we go again. start the car up start driving and as soon as you engage the brake pedal it keeps being engaged so you can constantly feel a lil rubbing all the time then when you engage the brake again the steering wheel shakes uncontrollably like when you slam the brakes and the ABS kicks on. found out theres a silky silicone substance now in the brake fluid and the mechanic couldnt garauntee a omplete flush and bleed could fix that either. total cost for repairs was 2690 bux. much mroe than the cars worth. as it sits right now it runs and everything but when you push the gas in it SLOWLY climbs to the speed limit. parts on the car right now consist of.....
clutch masters stage 4 kit with lightweight flywheel. roush suspension kit. svt header. 2.25'' magnaflow exhaust. aem SRI. ported throttle body. CFM short throw. i have a dual pod gage with A/F ratio and volt meter. 10'' kenwood sub with 300 watt amp. i have 3 17'' devino series DV22 rims with tires. i have black housing halo headlights and apc euro tails. and i have z3 fenders on it.
