this thing will never die! but the problem is, every month, i gotta use more than half my paycheck to fix something different on it! but i understand that the 2000 focuses are the worst year you can get... but i've also herd of some 2000 focuses being vary relyable. mine sure isnt.. haha and the only way the next car sitting in my drive way will be a ford, is if they bring the rs to the states. because i think thats the only practical ford to buy for my taste. seeing that its the only car ford makes with a manual transmittion that you can drive in the snow. but then again, if they want more then 30K for it, i wouldnt get one, seeing that you can get the awd sti for 5k more.. :P

Tire problem

The new tires I put on my SVT are brushing up againts the front fenders. tires are Toyo Proxes 4, 215-45-R17@ 35psi. Has any one had this problem before??

The ones it had before was Toyo Proxes T1R, 215-45-R17, I used to inflate them as recomended in the sticker located by the door frame, 31psi front and 29psi rear .

The guy at the shop where I bought the tires told me that those tires should never be under 35psi

On my ST I've had to replace the brakes twice (rotors and pads) in 60K miles, and the AC intake lines twice and struts. Nothing major at all.

New to this!

I just bought a 2003 Ford Focus SVT. its black w ith black/red leather interior. new lights, battery, spark plugs, upraded clutch, and few more new things. so far i have enjoyed it and it runs awesomely. of course there are some blemishes that need to be dealt with but i am satisfied as of now.
