Hello everyone
Two days ago I bought a silver 2003 zx5 with 107000 kilometres (around 66k miles) on it. I am a little nervous, because the car is a little older than what I was looking for (I had a 2006 in mind), but it's in really nice condition with low km's and the price seemed right $4700 (Canadian$). The only thing that doesn't work is the drivers side heated seat, I may be able to get that repaired! And it has two quater size rust spots (one at the back hatch handle and one near the wheel well, I am hoping to be able to fix that myself I think it's worth it, because the car is otherwhise so clean

I have to admit I am anxious about reliability (even though it looks like the lady who had it before me took really good care of it), since I haven't bought a car older than 2 years since my college days and hope I made the right decision?

This is my second Ford Focus, my first one was a German made 1995 1.8l diesel hatchback (I don't think this model exists in North America) and I loved it very much back then. Sadly I had to leave it behind in Europe when I moved to Canada in 2000
I am majorly down sizing this time around!
For the past 11 years I've been driving a Ford Explorer XLT (four door) which is on it's last leg and I wanted a more gas friendly vehicle.

The funnest Ford I've ever owned was when I lived in California in 1990 I had an electric blue all pimped out 1986 Ford Bronco (the small version)

This little ZX5 looks cute and even thought I haven't driven it very far yet, it seems a lot of fun with a little peppiness to it.

The lady I bought it from teared up when I drove it out of her drive way. I thought that was a good sign, after all if she hated the car she wouldn't have done that...LOL

Hey!

Just joined up today. Bought a 01 Focus SE Zetec 5-Speed yesterday.

After owning a 79 Mustang 5.0 and an 88 VW Fox Wagon 4-Speed, this is quite the step-up and I'm looking forward to doing some mild work to give it a little extra kick-in-the-ass. As I live up in the boonies of Labrador, Canada... I'll probably do some suspension mods as there's a lot of amazing gravel roads here just begging to be gone through sideways. (Oh how I miss Active Mountain, BC for the Rally Cross track there.)

So far already got some good info from the Boards!

Cheers!
