I'm sure I'm forgetting a few things. :blink:

Our 2000 Ford Focus has 167,500 miles on the odometer with no major repairs or replacement parts - just good old regular oil changes.

 

Yes the bodywork looks pretty awful it has to be said, but mechanically she just keeps on going and going and going...

Just got rid of a mk3 2.0 petrol estate with 194k on it. Had replaced clutch and flywheel (dualmass is damn expensive man!), all the suspension arms, bearing front and back, EGR valve, and it still wanted new rads (both cooling and ac were rotting to hell), valve stem steals plus the air bag control unit was shot and I was struggling to get 28mpg out of her so i thought it won't get through MOT with new regs (which are a pain the backside) so i might as well get newer car. So picked up 1.4 focus with 72k on the clock and still having problems with that too! lol

Mind you it had been used as a workhorse for 3 years and had 35k put on her in that time! :)

I don't for one minute regret getting my ford, well apart from a few issues even though its a low miler.

But when I used to have a Beamer 4 or 5 years ago, people were coming up with 400k + and a few euro people with their million km 6-pots.
