After 160,000 km and 60 payments, we now own our car. Our Ford Focus has been in the streets of New York, the wilds of Sault Ste. Marie and most parts in between.
Less pristine with some dings and nicks, and less roomy with two carseats crammed in the back, it has served us well. Even the recall notices and dead battery haven't soured us on our purchase (what a ringing endorsement!). It may not be much, but it is ours.
