I'm the original owner and after 5 years and 60,000 miles I'd definitely do it again! Zero problems, couldn't be happier with my purchase. I can't believe all these Focus horror story reviews. Maybe I got the only good one produced in 2001. Sorry 'bout your luck.
Reliability, gas mileage, standard equipment...and with the 5 speed, a blast to drive.
