ViperThreat Honestly, it doesn't really matter what you buy, if you don't spend at least $3k, you are asking for trouble. The zetec foci are pretty reliable and cheap, but If you want to even mention the word "reliable", its time to get out your wallet and open that thing up.

Remember, our economy is suffering, so prices on used cars arent dropping as fast as they used too.

foundonroadalive i just bought a very nice 02 zx5, but it was 5200. i have not seen any for 1 or 2 thousand. sorry, just my observation after lots of internet research. you will immediately be facing a timing belt change, at least $400.

elsolo Just find a Focus that isn't totally clapped out for sale at junkyard prices, then you will enjoy not having to fix a bunch of tiny little issues. My '04 focus has been reliable enough for my wife to drive, if I ever let her.
