A few things here. You may want to check with a dealer for confirmation. I would change the timing belt at around 100k. thats when iv always changed mine with NO issues. Also, I was told that the focus Ztec(DOHC...U.S. model anyway) was a non-interference engine, meaning that if the belt brakes the internal components will not hit each other.
