I got this current focus, a 2000 ZX3 with 120,000 miles on it for $500 bucks. The car now has 145,000 miles on it. The transmission was bad, which is why it was so cheap. I was 23 when I bought it, and Im 24 now.

My first focus (pictured in the avatar), was a 2002 ZX3, with 52,000 miles on it. I got it for $8900, with full Salleen Body Kit, and aftermarket wheels. Got that car when I was 18, and traded it off when I was almost 20, and 120,000 miles on it.

Got mine in 2010. Didn't cost me any money, just a car. Got rammed by an 88 year old man in a Taurus who ran his stop sign, the insurance company totaled my 2001 Sentra SE which had JUST been passed on to me by my mom for turning 18/graduation high school.

It was practically brand new, still had the factory warranty on it. Only had 16k miles, and was around $13k. The guy who bought it originally couldn't keep up on the payments and it was repo'd, Carmax bought it at auction, and then it became mine. Fast forward to now, and it has over 46k miles on it, and I love it just as much as the day I drove it home. The clutch in these cars is possibly the greatest I have ever driven. Subaru comes in close second, Mazda in 3rd.

So I presume that you are maybe 20 years old now, yes?

Best purchase I made, got my 2009 Gunmetal SE for 14,500 new in Dec 08. Was my first new car out of college. Bought it 10 days after it rolled off the line . Took all the incentives and paid "cash" (Third Party loan), so got it as cheap as I could. Just paid it off last week.

26 now.

Leather seats with your fog lights?

For the details on the problem with adding fog lights to a model that does not come from the factory with them, see:
Focus Fanatics > Model Specific Discussions > MK3 Focus > Fog Light Installation - S Model (with Pics)

(I see your post at 04-15-2013, 08:10 PM in that thread, so this reference is for anyone else reading your comment here who was not aware of it.)

To summarize, the problem is mostly not the dealer's fault, but they should be informed of the limitations and not give out incorrect information when they sell a car, so they are not blame free. Ford gets the blame for this frustration, though, for the way they package options and prevent modifications in control module software based on VIN.
