04 with 75,280 miles (I think I've got the most miles per year, or close).

I replaced my clutch at around 60k. No hard feelings for Ford, as I've had many, many hard launches, to include the drag strip, and I taught my daughter to drive in it. I've replaced 2 02 sensors, and 3 alternators (lifetime warrantee!). I need to replace the rear wiper motor. The car feels nice and tight, still quick.

98,000KM. So not as high as you all, but I have done lots of work on it! New timing belt, all pully's etc. Do all focus's have a noisey valve train, and sometimes a faint rattle up top? That's next summers project;)

And unfortunately, this is about the only competition I'll win!

My '04 turned 100,000 this morning.
