My oil change reminder has never come on either. Also the same with my low washer fluid. A reprogram at the dealer fixed the washer stuff, but I haven't gone 10k yet since the PCM was reprogrammed. Just got the clutches replaced along with the clutch motors. I have 38k on this in 13 months.

My 2002 Focus had no problem going 100K on the original plugs (also had no problem with Motorcraft Oil and filters - although I later switched to Purolator), I wouldn't expect the Gen III to either.

Yes, the spark plug change interval is 100k miles. Air filter is 30k, and the cabin air is 15k. Since I use Amsoil, I don't do oil changes for 25k miles.
