    Could it be that the units you were getting are test-drive/demo/showroom units?

    RSL bushing shouldn't give up * 20k kms, unless you drive like a crazy maniac through potholes and/or humps.

    sir hindi naman po.... yung bushing na pinalitan ko ang itsura eh... malutong na yung bushing kaya nagbibitakbitak at nadudurog brittle na din.... bihira pa gamitin po yung focus kaya nga kahit 4yrs old na nakaka 20k kms. palang yung tunog nag start sa 19k kms...... may time pa nga hindi nagamit yun more or less 1year.... maybe kaya siguro lumutong yung bushing.... before naman kasi hindi naman tumutunog yun nang ginamit nalang ulit wala pang 1week kumakalampag na agad... pero everything naman is working fine, malaban sa tires nabawasan ng hangin....

    eto po mga pinalitan sa focus namin since nabili namin, 5 yrs, 1.6L M/T, daily driven:

    1. front shock (forgot if LH or RH) - covered under warranty
    2. changed front and rear brake pads once
    3. rear stab bushings
    4. 1 stud bolt/nut na loose thread (rear)
    5. RH engine support
    6. battery replaced once
    7. air filter

    due to replace na rin front stab links, yan ang mga major na napalitan bukod sa regular na service sa casa every 10k kms.

    at 110k kms... mukhang durable naman pala ang focus.... normal lang naman palitan ang battery brake pads, air filter... ang lemon lang pala sa FORD FOCUS EH yung rear stabilizer link bushing... ang pagkaka design kasi ng rear stabilizer link bushing natin eh naka slant kaya siguro madaling masira.... pagdating naman sa shocks iisa lang naman ang manufacturer ng mga shock absorber pareho lang ata ng japanese cars ang shock ng ford focus, sa stud naman nasa nag kabit nalang ng stud ang may deperencya kung ipinasok nya ng hindi tama kahit maclaren pa yan ma loloose tread pa din yan.... other than that i think ford focus is still a good buy...

    eh sir yung timing? gaano katagal tumatagal before mag pa timing ulit?

    *glenn - sorry at di ako maalam pagdating na dyan sa mga mechanical/engine stuff...basta dala ko lang sa casa pag scheduled PMS na at kapag may mga piyesa na kailangan palitan base sa rekomendasyon ng casa, sa labas na ako bumibili at nagpapakabit. hindi pa nga ako naka pag pa-tune up na outside sa scheduled PMS.

    add ko sa problem with the focus, boot/trunk lock actuator failure... dahil electronic, ayun wala pang override para mabuksan ang trunk pag nag fail. pina chek ko sa casa, 2.1k sa pag diagnose/check, tapos ang quote sa part 8k at installation 2k. :-( pero hindi naman ito mangyayari sa lahat, nagkataon lang natapatan ako. but come to think of it, years down the line...hope that electronic lock lasts as long as the car
