Are they Foci? That would be a ringing endorsement of the Focus if your company has put 100k on 3 of them and has decided to purchase more.

Can you also clarify:
1) How many miles did the OEM tires last?
2) Any other major repair items on any of the 3 Foci besides the hub you mentioned?
3) Any sign of the clutches wearing out in your DCT?

Thanks for sharing, it gives us the warm and fuzzies.

MJEFF OOPS, sorry for a misleading statement, the car was bought by my company in Sept 2011,(2012 model year) They actually bought 3 white Focus's with in 3 months, as we have logo's that go on the side.
Yes, it needs snows but they are not going to spend the $$$ outfitting all the cars. We did have a Toyota Matrix with awd, that was a good car in the snow. Switching tires on various cars that are on the road every day would be a nightmare.
No way should Ford be having trans issue's with out some solution, other than reprograming. MJEFF

I can say that the engine in this car has good power and good economy. I have been in touch with the shop that services my car, trying to keep up with future maintenance items. I believe this car has a chain for the timing instead of the rubber belt.

Touring05 wow! thats a lot of miles. I have 4860 miles on mine, 11 months.

vegachicago For reasons unknown, the marbles in a tin can shifting went away at 7,000 miles with a mix of city and highway. Got a rattle underneath the car but I don't think it's the trans. Shifts smoothly without all the past problems of slipping, shudder, or ill timed shifts. Weird but I'm not complaining. Had the last 12b something update about 12 months ago.

The transmission was terrible till 85K then it seemed to straighten out(go figure) at 105K it needed a rear wheel bearing and hub. Otherwise we do regular maint, 50/50 syn blend as recommended, every 5-6K. We are on its second set of tires. The car still gets 35mpg.
The car is terrible in the snow, a combo of fwd and wide tires, these cars should be awd. MJEFF
awesome! hopefully a bright future for us

Keep us posted on how the car runs in the future!

Ok, I wasn't trying to argue that it wasn't possible, but that makes it a much more reasonable 210 miles/day which is only slightly over twice what I had been doing previously with my old car and my old internship through school. That makes more sense than the original post.
