What can i buy for 2500 - 3000?

Hey guys, im going to start by saying ive never even drove a focus let alone sat in one, but, they come highly recommended by a friend of mine.

I have about 2500 - 3000 to spend on one but i could do with some help with what i should look out for when / if i buy one;

What are the common faults i sould be aware of?
What sort of model / condition should i expect for the budget i have?
Petrol or diesel?
Are parts expensive? etc etc etc...

Just general help like that would be great

Thankyou in advance.
