79pace If you didnt see my thread about buying a focus recently. I should be in the entire car about $1200 And that will include new tires. I am putting a $250 complete remanufactured head on it, complete engine gasket set, new timing belt and replacing one piston with a used unit. compression was good in the other 3 cylinders so when I get this thing buttoned back up I will have a good reliable driver and like i said. All for under $1200. If thats not cheap I don't know what is.

sailor Someone who likes it better than putting 20/30k into a new "lemon".

Cheap parts are mostly from specialist companies you can find on-line. Good references found in here if you actually have an interest.

Really? I cant find any "dirt cheap" parts. Anywhere in or around the Atlanta area. On craigslist I found this:

-------------FOCUS/ESCORT 2.0 SOHC REBUILT / INSTALLED ENGINE---------

nice work but who puts $2000 into these lemons?!

natere2ster good luck trying to get ford to come off anything. i have to disagree with the person whose only advice was to "move on". It says something about the culture of a company to take your $$$ and not disclose or advise at least the KNOWN issues with this car. If it was a $200 laptop with a bad battery I would expect the same thing. Ford has the $$$ and resources to address this issue, they choose not to. It's ironic that the poster says "greenback greedy" when I think he should say that to the FORD MOTOR COMPANY, not the consumer. LOL

A 15 year old car with low miles is not 'like new' by any means. Yes, year 2000 cars are now 15, considering 2015 is 6 weeks away! Age wears a car down too, it is not "preserved" from sitting. Rubber and plastic age, and metal bends.





Can't expect a car that old to 'run like new'. After 7-8 years, it's survival of the fittest.


Exactly, my 03 has 77k miles but its almost 12 years old. Duh! Things are going to break soon! I bet my timing belt is original and needs replacing
