    Priced against similar-sized cars in the same class, bought from the dealership, the prices are the same when compared to dealership prices of other brands.

    What people are saying when they say Ford parts are expensive comes from the misconception that all Fords are American-sourced cars and that the parts have to be imported.

    This is true of some parts for American-built cars like the Explorer, Expedition and E150. But for ASEAN-European models like the Ranger, Everest and Lynx, there are cheap supplies available at various outside automotive suppliers. Focus parts are more expensive than Lynx parts, but similar to the cost of Civic parts.

    The same people who say Ford parts are expensive will tell you that you can buy Toyota parts anywhere. Yeah, you can. If they're pre-Altis Corolla or Revo taxis. They've never had to search for VVTi engine parts or common maintenance items for the old Camry 2.2.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    Depends on the parts and year model you are looking for...if it's the latest model, then I think its quite expensive and you have to buy it directly at your favorite dealer. Been sourcing some parts lately and I was surprised to hear that Banawe is more expensive than the dealers price. This is because they also source the parts from the dealers themselves and they have to consider also their margin.

    Research first in the Internet. Got a good buy when I did that, just to show you an example of what I have replaced:

    Original Ford Headlight:
    From Internet sourcing - 4K each
    Banawe retailers - 6.5K each
    Dealer - 6 K each

    This will give you an idea the pricing range.

    For the high-end brand (Bosch - banana type) wiper blades I think it's around 1,6++ each. But the problem with that is that they are shorter as compared to the originally installed wiper (the max. length I saw was 25", I think, and it doesn't even specify exactly Ford Focus in the vehicle type). Try to measure your wiper blades to be exact. You can find these at ACE, True Value & Handyman if you want to compare prices.

    Price from the dealers varies...last time I asked it was around P3,+++ for a pair.

    I thought so too... Baka all these negative inputs about ford brand is bec not a lot of people use ford....

    just helping out my sister decide whether to get a focus or not .... she's worried about parts and maint cost bec she plans to keep it longer than 5 years.
