My 2001 has 187,000 on it as I type this; always put the best oil in it, change it regular, listen to your car

118k miles now. Regular maintenance has been mostly kept up although low income prevents some things like dampers and a full set of tires. No major problems yet- including a battery that has been seeping since it was new. I just haven't needed to replace it yet. I merely greased up the positive terminal and let it go as is, been good for 5 years- yippee.

Dampers changed at 50k
SVT brake kit installed at 50k
New 17" Centerlines at 50k
Conti-pro contact tires installed at 50k
Kumho Ecsta ASX intalled at 85k worn too soon due to rear camber issue on wagons
Camber alignment bolts installed at 85k
Sway bar end links at 50k- went bad again in 20k, just left them for now. Moog lock nuts[thumd]
Been through 5 fuel filters so far.
Who knows how many oil changes.
No leaks anywhere currently.
Praying I don't have clutch problems until I have money/time for a new one.

Well back to the focus again, had a 2001 S2 Edition (as most people who've been on this forum for a while will know), recently bought a new Camaro 2SS/RS so I picked up a 2000 focus for a winter beater. Has 220,000kms (so 140,000 miles or so). It's still going, second engine, got some maintenance issues but it still drives like the S2 I had, pretty impressed, will be an excellent car for winter no doubt.
