Sorry, but...

Hey, mk 2 owners,

I have to say it again. I love my mk 2. It is 4.75 years old. No probes. Looks great. It gets great gas mileage. The transmission is good. No squeaks. The only issue I had was the end leaks failed, but it was a quick fix at the dealer. All the praise the mk 3 gets from the reviewers do not translate to the owners. Nothing but complaints from the mk 3 owners. In fact, they have their own topic category to rants. I had a mk 1 and yes it is great, but the mk 2 NA model is simply perfected in terms of reliability and satisfaction. I figure over 3 million Focci were made before mine and it shows. Yes, my body panels do not fit perfect, but I don't care! I love Sirius. The car is tight as the day I bought it and if I go for a road trip I will get 38 mpg+ on the highway. Like a hybrid. Sorry for the positive rant!

Proud Owner aka 2008 Ford Focus!

Don't be sorry, I love my Focus for the same reasons. Put some Autolite sparkplugs in it and love it even more.
