|GreySkorpion||The 2.3 duratec is amazing, most that have had both zetec or duratec prefer the duratec. Much more torque with the 2.3, but it's hard on auto transmissions.|

Not that they would be similar but the Taurus I drive runs a 3.0L Duratec and well I like familiar names... I would assume with focuses (focii? SOMEONE CLARIFY WHAT THE PLURAL VERSION OF FOCUS IS) it is the same as with Tauruses (Taurii? good god...) and that the Duratec is the preformance engine that isn't quite as reliable as the standardly equipped one. True?

|SoSleepy||lol well I went to look at the car and despite it saying it was a stick on the website it was unfortunately automatic. Disappointed by that then they tell me that even though I drove an hour and a half to come see their falsely advertised car that they won't come down on price. I wasn't expecting 1000 bucks but maybe like a hundred for that. Anyways the car was running strong and I loved the way the suspension felt, but I'm gonna have to keep looking around... do they have for sale threads on here??? Hopefully I can find someone close to chicago who is reasonable.|

No SPI in hatchabacks.. only sedans...
Zetec are strong platforms.. Besides obvious tune up maintance you should have no problems..
