Zetec 2.0L as well - very good choice. You've bought yourself a very nice car mate, you'll enjoy it.
Stress less about stuff you hear, just worry if it does happen to you. Even then, there are many ways to fix things. By the general consensus here, you're one very rightfully concerned owner purely becasue you've bought SUCH a good car that the idea of anything going wrong is a bad one!!! Never fear, you'll love your car from the moment you see it in your driveway. Congrats and welcome.

THANKS for the input. I feel better now.
I am excited about picking up the Focus SE with Zetec 2.0 L. Its not as sporty as some of the other models, but still, I think, quite sharp--Arizona beige!
Have a great weekend, all!

You won't have any problem with your brakes, the problem is quite fixed, especially in 03.
I had the wheels off today for some installation, and the pads are amazingly thick.
Do not fear, you have purchased a fine vehicle.

"that can be fixed with some grease and a little sanding"
Would you please elaborate a little on that comment to cure squeeling brakes?

But lets say you install your intake and some how get water into the engine, that wouldn't be covered if they proved that the aftermarket mod was the direct cause of the failure.
