F/S 2008 Focus S Sedan (5spd manual)
I am in Ottawa, and im looking to sell my Ford Focus S Sedan, with manual trans and A/C for $5500 firm. I have owned the car since 45,000 kms, and it just turned 135,000kms. I bought it from a retired lady, and i've babied it since i've owned it. Synthetic fluids everywhere, changed regularly. It gets awesome fuel mileage, as most of you probably know. The lowest consumption i've gotten is on a highway trip of 5 hours at 5.99 L/100. I average about 6.7 in the summer, and 7.5 in the winter.
It was my daily driver/commuter car, so it does have some paint chip issues, but looks clean when you wash it up. It is oil sprayed twice a year. Once before the winter, and once immediately after. It has husky floor mats in the interior, and mud guards up front.
The car is dead reliable. I have no reservations about getting in it and driving to Vancouver, which is one of the reasons i bought it, and keep it maintained. The suspension is starting to get a bit soft, but it doesnt bounce over bumps or anything. I dont think it needs anything for safety.
I would keep this car, but i am looking for another Focus with lower mileage (2008+) to modify. If you have such a car, we could work out a deal where i add cash.
My car will be sold with 15 or 16 inch wheels that will pass safety, and not the 17's you see. I'll get some better pictures through out the car, and post up.
