Smile Friend might buy 05 ST!

Tonight my best bud and I went to Lameroux Ford in East Brookfield MA to look at a car we got a tip on. 2005 Ford Focus ZX4 ST, 2.3 Duratec 5sp, black, red and black interior, 6cdmp3 with subwoofer, 50,000 miles, in great shape. selling price? $9325, which I think is a good deal....car runs really good, having never been in a 2.3D car, I was impressed witht he power off the line, but at 40mph+ I could def see where the SVTF would "smoke" the ST in a "roll race", if you are into that sort of thing. Will be a nice daily for my friend, who will most likely be joining up here soon, so look out for the Irish Twin Towers, Shamrock13 and Irishboom, lol.

I snapped a few pics, but it was getting dark out:

Two year old car with 50,000 miles and a $9000+ price tag...

The previous owner ran that car bloody; that dealership should know better.

Agreed on price "SLIGHTLY"

But both of you, calm down on that. High miles isnt HORRIBLE. its bad if the cars been in stop and go traffic constantly. Theres nothing wrong with miles on a car ffs. People have to DRIVE you know.

Ive put 12k on mine since, may? Its all highway commuter miles. Id rather get a car with 50k commuter miles than 50k city bumper to bumper traffic miles.


Ask for 6-7k, sure itll go for 8k tho.

Truth be told tho. For a grand or two more, you can get a 07 ST.

I wouldnt pay anything more that $8500.. that my opinion.. with the miles that it has, it isnt bad but they are sort of high for an 05... my sister just bought an 01 honda civic with 65000 miles on it for $7500...

Please remember that they started selling 05 Foci in the summer of 04, which means that the car might be 3 years old already. 16-17,000 miles a year isn't out of line if you llive in the burbs and commute.

I'd pay up to $9k for that car if it has records proving that it has been well-maintained.

I think you mean offer them 7k...Which IMO would be ridicules because I see 03's going for 7k. You really think you could buy a 05 ST for 7k? keep dreaming bud. My dealer offered me 8k for my ST on a trade in for a Fusion. BTW I'm not that far from East Brookfield MA
so if you want a better deal I'll sell you my ST with only 35k for $9800. Serious man.

Thanks for the tips guys, but I the car was manufactured and sold to the ONE owner in 2004, in fact it was bought in Oct of 04, was traded in MONADY this week. The previous owner was a suburb to city commuter, do the math and they drove about 16-17K miles a year, nothing outrageous.

And I am well known in my area in the car buisness, and would never insult this dealership, which is known for being one of the really good ones by offering them $7k on a car that was going to be listed TODAY for $10,995, nor do I wish to damage my own reputation by doing so. There is a chance some of you from other areas are used to paying less, but up here, cars sell used for more.

also, this car was being looked at by my friend not me, I am happy with my current SVTF, no intention of off-loading it anytime soon. My friend called me just now, he is purchasing the car, will be going to the dealer friday to finish the paperwork and give them his downpayment, he will be taking delivery either friday night or early next week.
