I don't know much about cars but have always wanted to...Thanks for having me!
Hopefully you didn't get hosed on the flush deal because it is BS. But welcome to the site and if you ever need anything just feel free to ask.

Now I've moved up to an '09 SES Sedan with SYNC... (and I loves the SYNC)... and it looks like this site is a lot more active, so I'm glad I found it when doing some searches on what all I can do with my new ride.
Yeah I was in the same boat as yourself. I had purchased my Focus off the lot in September of 2002 but didn't think of going to a site since a hammer answers most of my questions about the car . Welcome to the site and don't become addicted to it like myself lol

other than being told the reason it quit running was 'dirty gas' and the fix won't be under warranty, I'm digging the focus. the only two bothersome details are the lack of an internal trunk latch and the headlights not being auto matic. I used to drive a '91 taurus in highschool, it had neither of these features. I guess the maxima I drove while in college just spoiled me on creature comforts.
Once I get my car back, I'll post some pics of her. She's pretty and looks fast even though I drive like an old lady.
=)
Yeah, a lot of models vary in options and there are some that you will miss from your previous car that you don't have on your current one but you will get over it eventually. Welcome to the site as well.

Can't wait to start modding though. FocusFest was my general inspiration. I wanna race too! :D
I would say welcome to the site but you have been here pretty much the whole time as well, ah hell welcome anyways

hey everyone. i dont own a focus yet but i decide id join because i hope to own one in the future. i dont know how long my economy car is going to last (93 saturn lol) so i might need a new economy car and my choice will be a focus. I currently drive a 2003 V6 mustang as well, but thats a semi project car kuz im doing some gears n stuff soon. hoping to get some info on what to look for in a good focus and seeing which engine options i should get. (i want to get something a little quicker than a regular 2.0)

I got a 200+whp ZX3. It has a bunch of stuff done to it, but stock head and block. I am supposed to get it tuned tomoro, if TOM can tune my superchip. It did 185whp, with the stock TB, JRSC w/BBK, stock cat and a JBA shorty header.

Since then It has a full header, 67mm CFM TB, screamon deamon coil and wires, CoolingMist Methonal injection kit, and a CFM overdrive pulley.
I am hoping the dyno #s will be in the 220 range after that stuff. WE WILL SEE SOON!

Well im new here i just bought a Blue SVT on Friday and it will be delivered on Saturday. I currently drive a Tunderbird TurboCoupe (I'm going to miss 20PSI on 91oct). Any ways the reason i bought the SVT is that i needed something that got some good gas mileage ( the TC only got 15 when you drive it how it was ment to be driven and 23 when you drive it like an old lady and piss every other driver off on the road) so it was a no brainier to buy it for going back and forth to school. ( Ford ASSET student )

Hello Everyone! Just joined yesterday. My name is Karen. I was curious to see if there was a ford focus group in new york city and came across FF when I did a web search. I got my 05 zx4 focus 2 months ago and loving it.

ive been questioned by almost everyone i know as to why i got a focus, like its a bad thing. (specially cause im asian) ive always been a fan of the focus. and it just seems right for me.
