Good for you!

Either your neon had a lot of miles(& I mean a lot!) or the car wasn't properly taken care of before you got it.

This will be my third new car since 2008(2008 Chevy Aveo, 2010 Kia Soul, & now 2012 Hatchback Focus) and enjoy the payments, warranty, & dealer services such as oil changes, etc.

The ford dealer I bought from is about 20-30 minutes away but the manager of the dealer lives 5 houses down! I'll be able to just swap rides with him in the morning before work & he'll drive it to work for the services!

Cannot wait! Good luck!

actually its got low miles. 126,000 km. which is under 80,000 miles. Pretty low for a 97.
In my experience I haven't seen a lot of neons achieve high mileage, and when the tranny goes it's not worth it to have someone pull it apart, it would cost more than the car is worth.

HillbillyInBC, I really hope you get yours soon!
Thanks, and congratulations on your impending delivery. With similar luck I might be able to pick mine up before my trip to France, but I refuse to be hopeful after the way things have gone thus far.

All you have to do is look at the belt line. If it's black, it's an SE.

Well since I'm still waiting on windowsticker/build date, I knew it wasnt mine but still, from a distance looks like it could be it. I ordered a Titanium, there's a lot of differences but from a glance while driving by the wheels and paint are all I saw.

While I was on I-85 today (before Cumming, GA) - I saw a transport carrying a bunch of Focus sedans heading north.
