Well you never said why you are supposed to get rid of the car, and what is the new car supposed to have over the Focus - reliability, space, safety, power, luxury, space, low miles...

you need to give us more.

electical nightmare, and it will end up costing you more than your focus. The car is a blast to drive, but it requires alot of to maintain it, and parts aren't cheap.

exactly, 96-99 are the worst years of the A4, it wasn't until recently that Volkswagen/Audi started to improve on alot of their electrical problems, but they still haven't got their thumb under them all, and I love Audi's, but I wouldn't own an A4 that old. You will spend less money on your focus.
