My First Car.

2001 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I bought this car over a year ago and should've taken it to a mechanic.
I bought it for $1200 from a guy in my town.
It had 251000 miles on it.
I drove it 3 thousand miles the first month I had it.
To date I have replaced the battery(it had a go-cart battery when I bought it), rear wheel bearings, rear and front brakes, alternator, full front suspension, new tires.
So far I probably have about 3200 dollars into it and it now needs a new engine.
I got screwed by the former owner but i love this car.
I drove it for a few months tops (it was always in need of more work.
Great gas mileage.
Ive gotten it to 110 before new suspension.
Then i hit a hawk.
**Bottom line it was my first car and I bought a car that should've been sent to the salvage yard.**
