yes but a good running 100k miler is still better than a fucked lump with 70k on it. ;) zetecs are hardy and so long they are looked after they will go on forever, my old focus was a 2 litre blacktop and had about 140k on it, it run like it did when it rolled out the showroom in 2001 ;) never used a drop of oil or water
