advice before getting a 2007/2008 focus ST

hello everyone,

I've been driving a Peugeot 307 and have been looking to change to a focus ST (probably 2007/2008 model) for some time. Can anyone give me some advice on what the potential maintenance issues will be with this model I'm looking at, or do you advise the 2009 model ?

Thanks so much in advance

I have been hearing that the 08 st has very little problem's in the first 3-5 years. If your buying used? just make sure it was token care of really good, get a car-fax report. see what has been replaced.

There is no 08 st.

But its like any car all depends on how it was maintained.

But the 2.3 is a good engine if all work is done
