Gregg, our Fusion has 42K miles and the original pads are still good.
I would think the Focus would be similar.
It might be different if we let my son drive it.

I got 240,000 miles on the factory brake pads on my '92 F150. But that's mostly highway driven. On my camaro I've had them last less than 5,000 miles. Again, mostly highway but it's a difference of slowing nice and easy from 60mph and slowing really hard from 150+.

Don't be fooled by the rear shoes on a Focus, they are only about 3-4mm new. They will out-last the car, unless they crack. Fronts go pretty good too, you can usually see them through the wheels and check the thickness.

WOW Scott, I didn't know your F150 would do 150mph. Nice truck.
