what whynotthinkwhynot is pretty true for the 01 HOWEVER. my 01 was very problematic due to lack of maintenance before I bought it. but once I did my own magic to it the car was very dependable. basically when you shop for a old focus make sure you pop the hood first and see the engine is NOT A SPLIT PORT INJECTION motor. you will get valve seat drop no matter what. it was by far the worst thing ford has ever done and multiple people here wish they had never bought it.
