127k 2001 Focus ZTS

What I'd like to know is. Is this car worth keeping? I regret that I didn't get the hatchback with a standard trans, but is this worth upgrading to get more power out of it and upgrading suspension?

117,500 on the ZTW

It is a commuter car, and it does well.

Newbie here... first post. This seems to be an awesome site, very informative!

2003 SE Wagon
176,500 miles
Was corporate owned first 6 years, good records and upkeep, bulk of miles are corporate.

Appears to have been neglected for last two years.
I just bought it a month ago.


Ran like crap when I bought it, mostly because one bent rim on front, cupped wear in two tires, and tires out of balance.

Runs awesome now!

Remaining issues are:

When first starting automatic shift hesitates, between 2 and 3 (the engine revs for a second or so before transmisson engages). Only does it once, every single time on cold start, fine after that.


Vibration and annoying noise at idle. Vibration and noise is worse when in drive or reverse while idling, but only while idling. Maybe motor mounts?? Transmission mount?

My best friend's 2003 had 119,001 miles on it the day an idiot "mechanic" at a local garage decided the best way to see if they couldn't fix the car's "check engine" problem was to rev it to the max for a while and blow the head gasket/kill the car... Even had the balls to try and convince my friend he did it himself... The Smurf still had some life left in it too were it not for those stupid clowns. I hope my 2012 will see 100K+ and live for a long long time.
