2001 Se...

Hello All,
I am new to the community and wish to gather some information on a 2001 Focus SE with 65K on it. It is a 5 sp, air, wheels, black... I am looking to find out what you know, have found out, anything I should look out for... I have a 2 Escorts (94 and 99 wagons) and I like them so I am looking to move to a Focus.
Also, the Carfax on it has 2 hits as follows ...

Title issued or updated
An Exceeds Mechanical Limits
title was issued to this vehicle
in error.

The dealer says it has to do with having a digital odometer and is true and valid at 65K. Does this sound right to you? Thank you so much for your time and concern...

Sincerely,
Justrfb

Its possible that someone swapped out the gauge cluster from another vehicle with a lower mileage stored on the odometer.

Or it could just have been an error in titling. Does CF show the records and at what mileage it they occured?

Thanks for the reply Egz. I just went back and read the bottom of the Carfax report. It says what the dealer said... It is an error because that message is only for cars with 5 digit mechanical odometers and this car has a 6 digit digital odometer.
Any other information on this vehicle model please... Thanks again.

Do you know which engine it has? It had two options, the 2.0l SPI and the 2.0l Zetec.

I am not sure and I can't get the dealer right now... The Carfax description says... 2.0L L4 PFI DOHC

Does that answer what engine?... Thanks.

Thats not bad. You should try to get them to come down some. As far as issues with this model, I suggest you search in the Zetech forum and the tech forum for Zetech. If you have the vin#, send a p.m. to b16sir1991 (Mike). He will get you the Oasis report from ford. It tells what recall and repair work ford has done on the car.
