My 2001 Ford Focus hit 300k miles today. Who ever said American cars aren't reliable? The funny thing is I bought this car brand new 7 years ago today with 16 miles on it lol. I paid 14k for it and I think I've gotten my money's worth out of this thing lol. For anyone thats wondering it still has the original motor, water pump, and alternator on the car. In fact the valve cover has never been off and the motor doesn't burn, or leak a drop of oil. My buddies who are ford tech's can't beleive its lasted this long without dropping a valve seal. Matter of fact no one at the dealership has seen a focus with this many miles on it. I had to replace the orginal transmission, but even that lasted to 260k miles. Not bad for an automatic. I've really only done routine maintance on the car and when something did need to be replaced I would only use Ford parts. I've changed the oil in the car religiously and once again I've always used Ford Motorcraft Oil. Anyone think ford would trade me straight up for a new one lol. They could tear this one down and see what they did right lol.
