|TimmyATC||I've owned my 2010 Focus SE, with 112000 miles, for a little over 5 years and have done a few repairs on it. Most recently I replaced the valve cover gasket. I have replaced the front disc brake pads and rotors. I do a lot of highway driving so my brakes are still in pretty good condition. The biggest fix I've had to do involved the PCM computer. My car would jolt when it shifted from 3rd to 4th gear. I replaced the shifting solenoid but that didn't solve the problem. I ended up replacing the PCM with a used one. After a little experimenting with programming it using Ford's software I was able to fix it up and it has been running good as new since then (about 2.5 years ago). I have really enjoyed my Focus and think it is a very good car overall. I haven't spent a lot on repairs as I have been able to do all of them myself.|

I've owned it for 6 years. 102k on the odo. So far:
-Alternator (alternator itself was fine, but the clutch bearings went bad on it and started rattling)
-Idler & tensioner pulleys (weren't giving me issues but I replaced them while I had the alternator off)
-Rotors and pads on all 4 (twice)
-Swing arms and struts all the way around (also did this voluntarily when I installed FRP suspension)
-Swaybar endlinks up front
-Reverse lights switch
Overall, it's been a great car and it's never left me stranded.

My 2014 quit recognizing the key so it wouldn't start. Ring antenna at the ignition was cracked and not seated properly. There was a service note on it. Fixed under warranty.
Bigger issue was Ford road service left me stranded when it happened. Middle of Syracuse NY during the weekday and they could not get it towed. Had to call AAA.
No issues with my 2015 so far.

I have 3 Foci, 00' ZX3, 05' ZX4, 03' SVT I have to say, the ZX3 is the best of the 3 (no pun intended) but i do PM stuff whenever possible so i can keep up with maintenance on all of them.
Preventative Maintenance, hoses, belts fluid, etc...

|strtrkstooge||I picked up a left over/new 2014 March 11th. About 2 months later the car would no longer connect to my phone. I tried rebooting the phone, unpairing then repairing. I downloaded and installed the SYNC update for my car and it's been good ever since.|
