Please tell me you changed the factory oil at 1000 miles or so. Break-in oil needs to be changed out early to remove all the metal filings and other debris that break-in produces, and to get a fresh filter on there to catch any left overs. After that first change, you should then follow the oil change intervals that either the computer or owner's manual states. I believe it's 12m/10k miles for the Focus with full-synthetic.
