If your thinking about putting it up for sale, hollar at me. If we can come to a price agreement then ill take it off your hands.

If the rest of the car is in decent shape, then I'd say the new clutch is a reasonable investment. Like REV2004 said, a clutch is cheaper than sixty months worth of new car payments.

2010 Ford Focus S with ATX turning 100k

Oil changed every 5k-7.5k
1x Battery.
3x Wheel Bearings.
Power Steering Pump.
1x Set of tires.
2x Windshields

I'm still on the original brakes. The car drives fine and only needs Sparkplugs and the TB cleaned. Though the suspension is showing it's age by being a little loose and soft so i want to change out the Shocks/Struts and and replace any bushing when it comes time to replace the tires and brakes.

200k here i come!

And now the f'ing alternator dies... so, in 4 weeks:

-Thermostat housing
-Clutch
-Plugs, wires, coil
-Alternator

This car is really starting to make me angry. It ran so well for so long, but now I'm close to dragging it out behind the shed and shooting it.

It's a 9 year old car, if that's your only problems then you have nothing to complain about. Don't kill it, fix it or sell it sounds to me like it's a solid car
