is my car ready to break?

Hi guys, this is my first post

I just registered. Within a short time you'll easily notice that English is not my native language so I apologize in advance.

I own a 2001 Ford Focus. I have the "break" model with the small motor in it. It has a manual transmission.

I have 70 000 Km on the odometer and the car is running like brand new .

I was wondering what kind of problems come first on those and at what mileage?

Thank you much for your answers

About your question, i cant really answer that, I got my car at 62,000 miles...only prob i had with it was my key got stuck in the ignition n couldnt come out, thats the only recall...but mine is also a 2000..hopefully other ppl can answer ur question better.

Your English is far better than several people on this forum.

I agree. Your English is far superior to many people on this board who had it as their first language...What motor is in your car, as Canada may get different motors than we do in the U.S......Welcome aboard
