^ No joke! I bought my focus SVT with 97k and noticed my brake fluid was leaking somehwere just couldnt find it until i ran up to the gas station and couldn't get the pig back in gear. This was 2 weeks ago at 107k mi. Other than the standing on your head for an hour to get the CMC swapped, its not a hard fix. I also am replacing shocks all around as mine are a week from completly worn out and trying to figure out if the timing belt has been done yet.
