I have a 2001 Ford Focus that I bought used with 12,000 miles on it in December of 2001. I have been driving it for a little over 6 years and now have 201,700 miles on it and have had very few and minor problems with this car. It still has the same engine and trans. I have never changed the transmission fluid. I change the oil every 5,000 miles which is about every 6 - 8 weeks. It average 28-30 mpg and I love this car. I would definately buy another Ford.
