I think it's a common Ford thing to be honest. I've had two focuses and an escort and all of them had to have new alternators at about 40-50k.. last one cost me about 200 quid fitted and a rescue from the nice people at RAC


so far so good with the current
but i wont be surprised when the dashboard lights up and the whole thing grinds to a halt at about 40k!
Worth it in my opinion though....
