New here and have a question on future car

Hello everyone,

First off I want to say nice site. I have been reading through and looking around now for a few weeks. Right now I am in the market for a Focus. Need something better to drive my 72 mile commute to work and back.

I have been looking for a Focus. I had one for a rental awhile back and really liked the car. Yesterday I was suppose to look at a 2002 ZX5 but the dealership sold it. So I went with my next one in line and looked at a 2002 ZTS model.

After about 3 hours being at the dealship waiting and talking with the sales rep I started the paper work. They were unable to finish the loan end of it by the end of the day. So they gave me the car till Monday night. I have it right now in the driveway. Funny thing is I left my 20 year old mildly lift XJ sitting next to a 55K Acura.

So far the car is nice. Runs nice and smooth. I talked them down on the asking price becuase of a couple door dings and they have to look at the radio. Has no FM stations but can pick up AM somewhat. Sounds like the antenna feed is not connected.

My Question is what things should I look at before I sign the final paper work.

Specs..

Med Gray Paint
Tinted windows
16" Alloys
Auto Trans
2.0L Zetec motor
Power Windows
Power Mirrors
Power Moon/Sunroof
6 disc player am/fm radio
Fog lights.

What was left behind about 10 pennies and an Infinty Sub controll with wiring but no sub...

So give me your input.. Thanks...

In earlier year foci, the fuel pump was a recall. I believe it ran from 2000 to midway through the 2002's before they fixed the problem with a new design for the second half of the 2002's. I think you can go to any Ford dealership to find out if the recall is applicable to your car and if it has been fixed or not. Make sure if you do, have your VIN handy
