    What about the Ford Focus? From 2001 on up the auto transmission has been a nuisance for everyone. They rarely make 100,000 before it let's go and in 2012 to 2016 some were letting go at 200 miles from the dealer. There are several complaints and class action lawsuits against Ford for this but they haven't gotten anywhere

      DunkZ Z 3 hours ago

      Callum Balodis my E46 is about to hit 200k engine still running great but definitely new fuel pump, coils, radiator, main gaskets (oil pan valve cover and foil filter housing) oil changes every 7-10k miles. When this guy says blown head gaskets I wonder what he means. Here in the state of NM we have extreme temperature changes and a very dry high altitude climate things like gaskets become brittle very quickly so it’s quite common to have to replace gaskets.
