Hey everybody -

Just purchased a Focus that happened to be a very good deal, just needs a new slave cylinder line. I used to drive a 94 Escort, but the engine blew (a valve decided to hang out with one of the cylinders), so that forced me to get a new car but it should be for the better, the Focus seems to be a much more of a car. I've been lookin around the site for a little while and I've already learned quite a bit, and I'm sure that will continue. Besides being into cars, I'm also a fanatic about bikes, and I've had my 500 for a few years now, but unfortunately that has to go also.

Anyways, thanks again for the site and keep up the good work!

Somehow I missed this thread.

I'm Adam, right now I have a 1991 Nissan 300ZX 2+2 NA. It breaks down every month and takes the money for it to pay for repairs, not for improvements, so it's for sale now.

I'm looking at a 2004 Focus SVT right now. I have a couple of friends who drive Focuses and I finally decided to join them and mod the Focus and get another Twin Turbo 300ZX as a weekend car later.

hey guys. im a noob here on Fords. Before i came back home to Malaysia I was studying in Midland, Michigan for 2.5 years. I moved to Chicago for about 6 months before returning home.

Prior to this i was a Honda driver with a B18C-R Integra Type R.

Now that im back home, Im taking over my moms 07 Focus S2.0. Im a TOTAL newbie to the Ford scene and will need some guidance. I have no idea what the chasis codes are....neither the engines. So if someone could just let me know what my car is called in the scene it would be greatly appreciated.

its an 07 4 Door Focus Hatchback. The only badging on the rear is S2.0

high?

I'm pretty much here to view for the most part and find out what interesting things people are doing with their fords. I work two jobs and Go to school at UTI so I'm kind of lacking the time to post.

I drive an 06 white ZX3 with a 2 litre Duratec and a 5 speed gearbox. I love all small cars and I picked a focus because nobody around here seems to think it can be a fast car, I'll show em.

So excited to get my new focus done up!

Okay, i've been looking at this site for the last 2 days, just joined today.

Awesome site, so many ideas.

Can't wait to start on my own car - '06 zx5 ses black

Is there some sort of int/ext mod 101? Where to start with mods?

Wanting to be an owner!!

Hey guys I just came on here to do a little research so any help you can give me can be great!! I'm looking in to purchasing a Focus and I want to have some HONEST opinions on them. I'm can't purchase a brand new car [:(] but if you guys could give me any tips on what to look for when buying a used Focus would be great. What kind of mileage should I look for? What price? The reliability of the car? Thanks so much in advance!!

If you want a car that you can upgrade HP, get the 2.3L, if you want good gas mileage and less HP, get a 2.0

Since you're buying used, try to look for one with under 50k miles so you can can get some lifespan out of it.

Manual trannys are more fun and put more HP to the road than automatics, so I'd recommend getting a stick. Less to go wrong too.

The fOCUS is probably not as reliable as the honda civic, but way cooler and faster[8D]

Hi everyone! I'm glad to be a focus owner (on my second one). First was a 01 SE 4-door with zetec, now i just bought a 05 ZX3 with 2.0 dura.
Parts waiting to be installed this spring are Roush Stage 2 suspension kit, 18" ADR Interspeed rims with 215/35-18 nexen n3000 tires, and full cat back stainless 2.5" exhaust.
I love shopping on ebay for parts. You can get some pretty incredible deals there. My exhaust $130 shipped, tires/rims $718 shipped, suspension $335 shipped. Plus I'm a Mechanic so labor is free.
Cant wait to post some before and after pics!! Thanks all

Hey, my name is Mike, and I'm 18 years old.

My first car was/is a Ford Focus ZX3 Yellow '06. Bought it with about 6k miles on it and already tossed 10k on it within the past couple months. Everything is stock, 2.0L 5spd. I love it. Looking to do great things with this fofo, but at the moment money is at a minimum while I'm attending school at RIT.

Found this site just by browsing the web. Have been viewing for about 2 weeks now and I've learned so much already, it's great. Can't wait to try my own DIY's and to follow some How-To's.

Hello to everyone!

I purchased my '03 ZX5 at the end of October 2007. We found it (with 51K miles) at a rebuilder shop and I drove 7 hours to look at it! Turns out the car had been stolen and was a theft recovery. Nothing wrong with it except that it needed an oil change and a interior detail job bad. It was a total steal at only $4500.

Other than my 1964 Impala, this has been the most fun I have had owning a car!

Thanks to everyone for all the great info!

Hi all! I'm currently driving a 62 Ford Falcon & a 91 Honda CRX HF. The CRX is about to go & I will be purchasing an 08 Focus coupe when I can find the one I want. My sig other just purchased an 08 Focus SE sedan last friday & she loves it! This seems like a pretty good site, so I will check in often.[ffrocks]

HI,

I've been a Focus owner since 2005, used to drive the Focus wagon when I was in Germany and needed to rent a car (couldn't believe the amount of cargo space and head room!)... bought my little one to save gas. Love it.

I came on here to search for (and found) an answer about my turn indicator blinking rapidly.

I'll be hanging out and reading more.
