Looking for a Focus...

I daily drive a 98 Neon, and i wanted to upgrade to a newer vehicle, so i test drove a zx5 focus the other day...wow, talk about fun to drive and good power. So I am looking for a focus in or around the Michigan area. I found one in Muskegon but I am unsure about it, would anybody on here run a carfax for me?

or does anybody know of any good ones in the Michigan area right now, i'd really like an SVT, but a manual trans zx3 or zx5 would be good too. Either way, i'm getting a focus, they just have great power and handling as well as great mileage...although nothing could touch my neon for mileage...

what are you looking for, sedan, hatch, wagon, svt, duatec, zetec, spi? A manual zetec hatch would probably be the cheapest with great aftermarket. A SVT is rather hard to find but you wouldn't have to mod it much to feel good about that car. You could get a duratec but now your starting to look at a newer class of cars. The duratec is available in 2.0 & 2.3. The zetec and svt can be changed to 2.3 but is pretty expensive. For the price look for a 2000-2003 zetec hatch.

manual, hatchback, zx5 preferably, i guess the 2.3 is supposed to be better than the zetec, right?

Not sure what price range your looking to be, but the best bang for the buck would be any 03-04 Focus with the 2.3 duratec engine which pumps out 145 horsepower. They are hard to find but a little Patience you might get lucky. BTW I think both the 2.3 and 2.0 retails for about the same.
