#5 of 476 HIGH IDLE 1987 CIVIC1500

My 1987 civic1500 has a very high idle that does not kick down. This causes the car to bang hard in to all gears what can be the problem? The car has the original carb and has 130.000 on the OD.

I bought my 2000 Ford Focus SE in July 2003 with 47k miles on it for $5000. Since then I have driven back and forth across the country and just passed the 70k mark last week. The only money I have put into the car aside for changing the oil has been $450 for new tires and then a couple bucks for new brakes. I plan on keeping this car as long as it'll run.

I just bought mine 04 / 5spd / 2.0 / nothing fancy, pretty basic with 8100 miles for $8900

I went down to the local dealer in Upstate New York and was surprised to find they had no manuals. The salesman tells me 99.9% of Americans buy autos. I thought he was full of it. Anyway his only bright idea was to order one and didn't find it strange to have just autos. I wonder if this is a large problem with ford. On other brands lots I've never not found manuals. Anyway the closest dealer is several miles away and I'll see if I can at least test drive one there.
#12 of 476 That's strange, I couldn't find any Focus ST w/ auto ;-)

Manual is for pleasure. That's why Ford builds the '05 ST sedan Focus just for you -- stick only!
#13 of 476 2005 Focus Base Model
May 12, 2005 (8:34 am)
Just bought a new 05 Focus (base model, only option was the air conditioner, manual transmission) - for $9125 plus TTL, etc. Drive out was just over $9900.
Sticker price was approximately $15,250.
The dealer had an ad in the paper for $8980 for the base models with AC but when I got to the dealership they had only this one for $9125.
Has anyone else have info on a recent base model purchase?
Is this price reasonable?

Hi there -- There's a '04 focus at my local Ford dealer I'm unsure what incentives, rebates, holdbacks and marketing cash this vehicle has already soaked up. If anyone has any ideas.. Oh--
Car was made in late '03, It's a ZX3 (2 door hatch) Power everything was included in the base (ford sticker) price, with the only options being ABS, 6 disc and premium sound before the 8,000 add for the roush sticker... It's at the Ford store as a "make an offer!!!" car, I'd like to be armed with some intelligence as to what's reasonable to offer (for a three year old new car)
