looking to buy first generation focus.

hey, guys, new to the forum and i'm looking to buy a first generation ford focus. i decided to join because i was hoping that you guys would be able to give me some tips on which year focus to buy as well as which years to avoid.

my brother told me to stick to the years 2000 and 2001 because the other year ford focus have a lot of electrical problems; can anyone verify that?

also, are the manual transmissions reliable (i prefer manual transmissions)? is the 6 cylinder or 4 cylinder engine is more reliable?

i'll be checking up on the forum regularly, so if you have any questions to ask me, feel free to ask.

thanks in advanced.

edit: looking to buy a four door focus to keep the insurance rates down.
