Try to find a 2004. Last year before the redesigned frontend. As for electrical problems, mk1 foci arent no VW. Sure they may be a few who have had issues, but nothing major. Ive owned two 2004 models, a 2.3 atx zx3, and a svt. Just look for one with the lowest mileage, and if you can find a 2.3 with a 5 speed would be better. I didnt have any problems with either the auto tranny, or the 6 speed in the svt, but i cant say anything about the mtx75 that was available either.
