2000 Focus ZX3 with Zetec,

191000 here still running good. Uses NO oil at all (no burning, no leaking). Still gets 35Mpg in the summer here in Wisconsin.

I drive an hour to work that's why

So far:

1. Had the locked up ignition switch fixed.
2. New rotors/ brakes about 3 times now. Do them myself now
3. Timing belt replaced at 155000 or so.
4. Serpentine belt replaced maybe around 135000-140000? Cant remember
5. Fuel pump replaced on recall.
6. And of course the infamous thermostat housing O-Ring. I have another small leak, maybe this time the housing is finally cracked.
7. Had the front springs break, fixed also under warranty.

Umm don't hit me. I've never changed the spark plugs ever. But it runs great yet...I wanted to change them, but never got to it..

Wow. I have 75k on mine, changed the plugs at 60, just to be on the safe side.

Helps to have a family member run a shop too, I pay basically nothing in labor when it comes to routine maintenance
