Newbie here...

Hey gang,

I am a bimmerhead mostly, but when I come across cars that look that they might be good to part out I buy them. In this case it's a 2004 Ford Focus ZX3.

I do not have all of the details yet, but here are a few:

2004 FORD FOCUS ZX3, COUPE 3 DR, 2.3L L4 FI, 5 SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION, INTERMITTENT WIPERS, TACHOMETER, AIRBAG EQUIPPED, AM/FM/CD STEREO, AIR CONDITIONING, A/C POWER SUPPLY, REAR DEFROST, REAR WIPER, 56k miles...



My question to you Focus gurus is this: Is this car worth buying for $2000? I am willing to put down the cash if I can turn it around and part the car out for a few extra bucks...

Btw, I know I am a newbie here, but if you guys need to check out my feedback, look me up at bimmerforums.com, I'm a regular there. I go by the same handle name: GRIDLOCK.

Thanks in advance for all your help/advice!

If it's clean , I wouldn't bother parting it out. Just flip it for about $6500. It would sell fast and you would make 4500 bucks .

It's a five speed hatch with the 2.3. Thats a desirable model.
