2003 ZX3 Zetec 5 speed. Every winter in New York and many highway miles in snow storms.
It's been taken places a 4x4 Ranger wouldn't go.
It's been run into a ditch at 40, hit a driveway embankment, went 3 feet in the air and came down so hard that the oil pan dug an 18x20inch, 3 inch deep hole in a dirt road, then backed out and drove home and never need anything fixed.
It did around 10 rollback clutch drop burnouts the day of my graduation.
It was once stuck in a ditch so deep I was looking out the windows at dirt, and drove out on it's own power.
It currently is closer to 170k than 169k...and the most serious problem it's ever had was a thermostat. I love my Focus.
Common sense isn't so common.
