We purchased our red 2003 Focus from Keezee Ford in Cortez Colorado new, so far we have put 203,000 miles on this little car. And a lot of those miles were on mountain roads from 4500 feet in the desert near our home to over 12,000 feet going over Independence Pass. We also have had to drive the Million Dollar Highway that goes over Coal Bank Pass, and Moles Pass to get to Silverton, and then over Red Mountain Pass to get to Ouray. Pronounced ur-ray.
With normal routine maintenance, we have had almost no mechanical trouble at all, one fuel pump and one water pump. Now we are planning to buy a 2011 ford Fusion Hybrid this coming march, and I am giving our Focus to our daughter in Oklahoma, for her to use and transport our two grand children around town. This is how much trust I have in this little car.
