No way man! I love the j-body platform as a commuter. I've got a Chevy cavalier that is a beast. It doesn't mut much power down, but I'll be damned if that car isn't the most reliable thing ever. I totaled it (ran into a jersey barrier, wrecked the radiator and bumper, and an air bag deployed and the cost to replace those items was more than the car was worth, lol) but I got it repaired, and now, 30k miles later, all I've done to it other than that is oil and brakes. My focus... Engine, clutch, intake manifold, alternator, battery... The list goes on. And it's got about 50k less miles than the cavalier!!!

My sunfire is a '96 with a 3 speed auto in it. That is probably what kills me the most about it. Such a pain merging onto the freeway. The little hamsters are on overload trying to get the sewing machine of an engine to move. Lol.

I had to put a new fuel pump in it recently. ($500). That sucked. The drum brakes are terrible. But whatever. It's my first car so it's supposed to be like that right? ; )
It's been a good little car for the most part, I guess I am just really bored of it.

In my case, i call it an addiction. Like a drug addict, it's normal for me to spend majority of my paycheck, except on my Focus. I would buy another in a heartbeat. I tried encouraging my dad to get one, but he doesn't seem interested. I almost got my gf to get a MK1.5 sedan, but it didn't work. One day i will be surrounded by Foci! I really love mine, and there isn't much that would make me give it up. I just talked about this earlier, i will own this car until it dies. And when it does, i'll fix it into a beater, and own another Focus.
